the bad: unfortunately the coat sold out in the 0 and so i got the 2. it's not so big that it fits like the wrong size, but i feel like i'd love it more if the sleeves were a bit slimmer and about half an inch shorter so that it fits like how it's supposed to: as a shrunken, almost 3/4 sleeve length. it's quite boxy in the body as well. again, given that it's a winter coat, this isn't a huge issue as it will be better for layering, but a more slim cut in the torso would be ideal.

overall, i think it's a classic piece that is very versatile and will be a wardrobe workhorse item in the colder months. i have another, more formal knee-length camel coat from Banana Republic that i got a few years ago on final clearance that is made from a similar blend, but the fabric is much more stiff. the greta coat seems like it would be a cozy weekday option, so i'm leaning towards keeping it for the time being. the material is a little wrinkly from the way it was folded/packaged, which hopefully a quick trip to my dry-cleaners will fix. does anyone know if you can iron wool blends like this?
