Rated 5 out of 5 by MaryAshley So many compliments
I absolutely love this coat. The color was a little more blue than I was expecting, but it really works. I'm 5'10", 145 lbs and Size 8 Tall fit perfectly, leaving a little room for winter clothing. The sleeves were just the right length as was the hem. Usually my coats hit a little short for knee-length dresses, but this is perfect just above the knee. Everyone that saw me in this coat has just gone crazy over both the unique color and beautiful fit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TallnBlonde So this is a "tall?"
I fell in love with this jacket the minute I saw it. The color (wet cobblestone) is amazing. So I ordered it, even though it was on backorder. I was so happy when it arrived much earlier than expected! The fabric is nice. It's more grey in person than online. The texture is harder and smoother than your typical wool coat. The lining is clearly high-quality as well.
So why two stars? Because I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how this jacket is considered a "tall." The sleeves were much too short for a tall, and the waist was in completely the wrong place (read: 3 inches above my natural line.) This made me look boxy. Basically, there's no definition. I'm 5'9 and typically wear a 2 so it's not like I'm boxy to begin with. Just making the arms "longer" does not constitute a tall, J. Crew! Also, the pockets are in the worst place - right in front next to the buttons so you look like you're covering up *something* instead of just keeping your hands warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lotty Great Warm Coat for Tall Ladies
I am quite tall (6'1) and finding a winter coat with long enough sleeves has always been a struggle. This coat not only has a great fit for tall ladies but it is also very warm with the Thinsulate, making it a double score in my book. I purchased the same coat 2 yrs ago, the quality has been very good and the style is so classic I decided to get it again in a new color this year. The coat does run a tad large (I went down a size from my usual) but if you want space for thick sweaters true size may work.

I have never reviewed anything before, but I want everyone to know how great this piece is! I am 5'11" with very long arms, and this coat fits like a dream. I cannot go anywhere without receiving compliments on it. The thinsulate lining makes it nice and toasty without adding bulk. It's worth every penny!

Rated 3 out of 5 by AmyD Lovely coat, but sizing did not work for me
This coat is beautiful! I love the tailored shape and variety of color options. Unfortunately, I could not find a size that fit. I'm 5'7" and around 120lbs. The size 0 fit very well through the body, but the sleeves were too short. The sleeves were also slightly snug if I put it on with a sweater. The coat does not come in size 0 tall. I did try a size 2 (regular and tall), which was too big. Also, I do not want the overall hem length of the coat to be increased as it is with the tall sizes (it is already borderline too long)... I just need longer sleeves.
