Susan Graver Reversible Fleece Coat
This is a very nice coat, the fit was true to size. I got a medium. I would have rated this a 4 star, but the buttons on this coat do not stay buttoned. Like the buttons are too small for the holes. Otherwise it is cute and not too heavy.
I purchased this coat to replace an old wool coat of the same length. It is warm and appropriate even over a dress. The ability to reverse has been great for complimenting my outfit, and I would recommend purchasing your actual size.
Love this coat!
This coat is warm and not at all bulky. One side is dressy and the other is dress down!
I got the wine and camel. I love it! I plan to get another of her coats a little shorter and with a hood. It is just a winner!
Great coat that is light weight but keeps me warm. Highly recommend!!
Minimal color choices left in my size, so I ordered green/khaki. Because the khaki trim is such a contrast to the dark green, the flawed seam matching is very apparent.
On the plus side, it's warm and the length is good. Pockets are ok. Buttons are ok.
On the down side (for me) is that the green is the exact shade of my parochial school jumper uniform from > 40 years ago, and I get twitchy looking at it on the hanger.
Not sure whether I'll keep. Tired of paying ~ $15 to try something on.
Wonderfully cozy coat
I ordered the coat in wine/camel combination. The coat is lovely, soft, and cozy. As others have said, the buttonholes are a bit big (but they work), and the coat runs large. I sized up, thinking I would need the extra room for wearing layers/sweaters, based on my experience with a different style of coat from Susan Graver. Easily could have ordered a size - or 2? - smaller and still had room. Most colors are sold out in the size I would order if I returned it, so I will embrace the extra room and save the extra shipping charges. The longer length is nice, and the sleeve length can easily be adjusted by turning up the cuff. The tag removes easily, so the coat becomes truly reversible. Even with the very minor drawbacks, this coat is 5 *'s. Thanks, Susan, for a great addition to your line!
Great Coat But With a Problem...
I purchased two of these coats. My mother and I love them...warm, comfy, roomy for a sweater or blazer underneath. However, Susan needs to fix the button holes. The fabric totally stretches and the coat's button holes open. I have already tightened them, but the two tone color makes matching the thread difficult. The holes are stretching again! Susan, how about going around the holes with "pleather" or leather to secure them from streatching? I would buy two more if you improved this factor. Thanks!
Cozy, but cut big on top, and I am hour-glass shape. Also, I hate patch pockets on a coat would be better with side slit pockets. Wanted to love but had to return.
Coat is Huge!
I ordered this coat in the black and red. It looked so cute on the models and the price was right. I was so disappointed when it arrived. It looked cheap and poorly made, and it was huge and boxy and very unflattering! I ordered the medium and it felt like a 2X. I have since read reviews of the coat being much too large and also being smaller than it should. That sounds so strange. I would think the sizes would be the same for everyone. I don’t care to take a chance on ordering this again so I’m getting my money back – minus shipping and handling. Feels like I had to pay for someone else’s mistake.
It's warm, but ...
This coat is very warm and lightweight. Because it was so nice and warm in the cold weather, I worked hard to try and like this coat, but I just couldn't make myself like it. The fit was boxy, but it was true to size. And the decorative seams were not well put together. Because the seams were so poorly constructed, the coat looked cheap. If you don't mind the way you look in it, you will stay nice and warm.
So cozy and warm and looks nice too. Love the light weight.
True to size for me. Just enough room to fit an additional layer underneath comfortably!
The stitching on mine was just fine. A good purchase.
