I originally bought this half trench because of the water repellant feature. I ordered the coat in a size small in white. When I received the jacket, it fit a little big and I was immediately worried about the color, mainly because the sleeves are not normal fitted sleeves but more like bell sleeves. I am taking this coat on a two week European vacation, plan on taking public transport etc and knew the sleeves would get very dirty and show everything because of their shape and size.I exchanged the jacket and received my new order in one day! That was awesome. I ordered the extra small in the olive color. This jacket does not appear to be as heavy as the other, the size is a much better fit for my petite frame. Sleeves are still quite big but I think it is a fun and different jacket. The color is beautiful and I can't wait to wear it and test out the water repellency.
