I recently posted a new grey coat I was considering, and got some great feedback on it’s not-so-great fit. I thought it would be good to review the fit of ALL my wool coats. I live in New England so I need coats. I am wearing them over a fairly heavy sweater but with no accessories. Would
love your comments, especially on the FIT, and don’t worry about hurting my feelings. All of them are petite sizes except the last two. The petite sizes definitely fit much better with shorter waists, smaller lapels, shorter sleeves etc.

  1. Red LL Bean. This seems good, maybe a bit too boxy. I found it for $10 at a thrift store, had not been worn and could not resist.
  2. Darker Red Calvin Klein with wide collar. This collar sometimes seems a bit too big for my face and shoulders. Sleeves also just a little too long.
  3. Ann Klein Deep Blue.
  4. Black Michael Kors with gold zippers
  5. Forecaster Charcoal Grey. I can see now that this is just too big in the upper body, lapels, and length. I wore it a lot years ago when longer coats were more in style. It’s very old although in excellent
    condition and it’s time to let it go
  6. F21 Grey, shown without the fur collar. As Angie said reviously…”….the fit is off. You can adjust the buttons, but that does not address the fit up top…..You need something less straight, and more curved in silhouette.” (I'm going to return this)
