Anon123 - Review from Anthropologie
This is a sweater coat. I live in a mild climate so this is as heavy as I will need most of the time.I like the fit of it. It hits perfectly right above me waist so it looks cute with dresses/skirts or pants. I usually find long cardigans look a little shapeless from behind with a dress. I don't find the boiled wool texture to be itchy.I deducted a star though because I've noticed some pilling around the arms. IMO for this price there should be better quality wool.

Great sweater "coat" for fallDarling sweater coat, I will definitely be wearing it in the mild Southern California fall/winter, although even for here, I'm worried about the breathing of the wool. Even though it's a tight-knit, boiled wool, it very obviously will breathe because you can see through it in the light (not when you're wearing it). Love the design the buttons are nice and big, the color is rich, the pockets are huge and quite handy, and the collar is a nice size. Slightly itchy, though.Definitely runs small, I'll say that right off the bat. I'm a 14 on top and ordered the XL and I was a bit shocked that the waist was as tight as it was, but we can't all be the size of the Anthro models. It does stretch, though, being a sweater, so if you're less than a 14 you should be fine.

DisappointedTalk about disappointment, this was originally called "Red Riding Coat", now I see they changed the name to sweater. That is exactly what this is, a sweater. One of the girls at work called it a cardigan. It is not even wool, it feels like felt. There is no lining and there was pieces of the material in the pocket. I am returning it and I am also not happy that I have to pay a return fee when this item was totally misrepresented.

Yep, it's a sweater not a coatFirst, I ordered this coat in black (was sold out in petite in red). When I got it, it was red which made me happy.. The color is nice.It does run small, it fits but would be tight with sweater under it. In my mind a coat should have a little room. I like lightweight coats, but this is definitely more of a sweater for sure. Debating whether to take it back. Hmmm.

Very thinThis coat has no lining and is very thin - more like a sweater. It was pretty, but not what I was hoping for as I live in a cold place. Also, size down if you have a narrow waist.
