i purchased this coat on sale in the spring and am reviewing now because I've finally had a chance to wear it. The look is lovely so i wish the construction were better. First, button-on hood unsnaps constantly, when taking over-the-shoulder bags off and on, or pretty much anything touches it. the same happens with the snap-on belt. i took the coat to a tailor to have the hood and belt sewn on to fix these problems. but almost immediately, the zipper broke, i'm wearing one full size up, and always wear it with the buttons closures snapped as well, so there isn't any undue strain on the zipper. The zipper splits from the bottom if i so much as lean forward (forget about sitting down while the coat is on). THis is something the tailor can't fix. so i am walking around in temps in low teens with a coat that won't stay zipped. on top of all of this, the texture is flimsy and i'm not sure how warm it would be even if it stayed closed. I am so dissapointed to be dealing with these problems with it being so cold outside already. I wasn't planning on having to buy yet another winter coat, and so many other vegan options are already sold out for the season. I am sad to say i will not be purchasing anything from this brand again. lesson learned.
