love it!I could not be happier with this purchase. I love the extra long sleeves, and the colors are really much brighter than they appear in the picture. I can't wait to wear this on vacation.
Sweetpea123 - Review from Anthropologie
A nice surpriseI had this wish listed for a long time, but some of the reviews made me doubtful. Bought it when it went on sale and I'm really glad I did. For some reason I hadn't noticed that the buttons go all the way down the front (I thought they were only at the top). I've added one final snap toward the lower hem and I wear this buttoned up as a sweater dress--it's perfect. Of course, it works as a sweater too. It's definitely not a coat, though. I ordered my usual small and it fit generously, which works with the way I'm wearing it. I haven't had the piling or fuzz problems others have. The black yarn in the weave is chenille, so that may be the source of the fuzz. But like I said, I haven't had those issues. I also don't find it too itchy, which I'm normally sensitive to. I will wear this a lot! Perfect for running around town and running after the kiddies!

Fairisle FantasticThis coat (sweater) is beautiful! The details are really pretty and fun. I cant believe it went on sale so fast! It is so worth the sale price. This is a WOW piece for your wardrobe. Pair it with neutrals and you have a compliment worthy outfit. I haven't noticed the blue fuzz other reviewers mentioned being a problem. I am between a medium and large in most Anthro pieces and the large just looked too frumpy. The medium fit like a glove. So if you are in between, size down.

ColorismIt was love at first sight for me. I love the fit--true to size I would say. BUT it does have some stretch without leaving the shape with the fabric once the garment is on the hanger, or at least no longer on you. I appreciate that quality because some clothing stretches but there's no reversion. I absolutely love the colors and each of the four times that I have worn it I have received compliments and nice smiles. I have not experienced the sheddiing with my sweater as some of the other reviewers have noted--I certainly would have returned mine if I had. It feels like one of those items that will not only stand the test of time in terms of wearability but one that I will want to wear for years to come.
CaliGirlSD - Review from Anthropologie
Very itchyI was so excited to receive this in the mail yesterday, only to be very disappointed. The colors are great, just like pictured on the web, but the material and fit left much to be desired. I ordered a large (150 lbs, size 8) hoping that there would be room to layer underneath. I was swimming in the sweater coat. When buttoned it looked ridiculous. I am not sure what was worse, the fit or the itchiness of the fabric. I tied it on with a short sleeve t-shirt and my arms, wrists and neck were unbearably itchy after just a few minutes. If you order, size down and make sure that you do not have sensitive skin. If the material was of better quality, I would have re-ordered in a smaller size. I still love the colors and the design.
