Another complaint was that this belt is too short to wrap around the back of the coat and tie, or tie in a knot in front. That is probably true. But again, I had no problem with this, as I think it looks much more chic to belt it as it was meant to be belted.
On the sizing front: I ordered a 6 Tall. Some ladies thought the length of this coat was a bit short, but the Tall length is pefect for me, with trousers, and I am just shy of 5'10". The 6 Tall is totally roomy enough for a sweater underneath, but not too bulky at all. It fits pefectly except for being a bit big in the hip area. That's ok with me.
One more feature I will address: The color. This blue is divine, so bright and saturated. I LOVE it and I think it will look great with many different colored scarves. I know a lot of ladies loved the carribbean pink as well. I didn't see that color in person, and since I have the metro coat in vintage berry, I thought the blue was the better choice. If you are a fan of blue, this coat is gorgeous.
Hope this review helped! This coat is a steal right now, with the extra 30% off it comes to $119. The original price was $350, so that is close to 65% off! Thanks for reading.
