Rated 3 out of 5 by rodneysmom Take out the pleat- back of coat!
Love this coat - feels and looks like cashmere- fit is true to size - stayed with my regular Size 2 in GILI. One major issue that does not flatter the back of the coat is the inverted pleat- right below the belt it puckers and the pleat itself doesn't close to lay flat. Coat would have looked and fitted much better without the pleat and just keeping the back flat and clean. Red and black very pretty.
Rated 3 out of 5 by NJ Not Happy It's a Blanket
Although I liked the style, I didn't like that the fabric was like wearing a blanket. Did not look like coat fabric at all. They just took a blanket and made a coat out of it. Returned and wouldn't recommend unless you don't mind wearing a blanket for a dress coat.

I must admit I was so negatively influenced by the bad reviews this coat received that I hesitated in even trying it until it went on sale. Much to my own pleasant surprise -- this coat is absolutely perfect. There were so many negative comments concerning the back pleat. Yet, when I received my coat and tried it on -- I found absolutely nothing wrong with it. I honestly have to question whether people have purchased the wrong size. All I can say is that I found that the "issues" others had with this coat with "non issues" for me. In my view this coat was a home run.

Rated 3 out of 5 by QVCDivah Looks like a Bathrobe
This coat has so much potential. The color is beautiful, the fabric is super soft, and the fit was pretty good for GILI. I did size up, which I recommend for tall or long-limbed women. That's the ONLY way to get a GILI jacket or coat to fit in the arms. Jill, I know you read these comments so I will say it again: MAKE THE CLOTHES PROPORTIONAL FOR TALLER WOMEN. It's annoying to have the jacket/coat fit but then the sleeves stop halfway down my forearm. Unfortunately, the coat just looked like an expensive robe. I returned it.

I cannot believe all the negative reviews this coat got. I purchased my regular Gili size
and the coat looks stunning and I am not tall. I love the collar, and the pleat in the back.
I love the weight and the way it wraps. I wish I could justify buying it in all three colors. I bought the fawn color and I truly love it - soooo stylish!

I should have followed the reviews on this one. I ordered a size 2 on this coat (im about 135lbs/5'3)...the coat was too big. The collar is way too big, you lose your neck and it makes it difficult to turn your head. The torso portion is wide....when belted, the fabric bunches and looks too bulky. The back of the coat is just weird. It's just not flattering at all. Reminiscent of a bathrobe. Color and fabric are nothing extraordinary ( I opted for the fawn). It's going back. Tired of paying the return shipping fees.
