I have been looking for a camel 3/4 length coat and decided to order this one as it looked perfect. I couldn't have been more disappointed. The color is definitely not camel...it is a mustardy gold which is not attractive. Also, the fit is terrible. This style of coat is meant to look tailored, but It just looks sloppy. I would order down two sizes if you are ordering another color...this coat is huge!!! I have ordered many wonderful items from Chadwicks, but this coat is simply not up to their normally high quality.
Recommend with reservations
First, I have been searching for a coat like this with no luck until now. I love this coat, so I gave it 4 stars, but...First, I am 62 years old, 5'2" 127 lbs. I ordered the coat in winter white in my size 6P. It was gigantic! So I exchanged it for a 4P-still too big, so I ordered a 2P which I am keeping because it was on sale plus I had a coupon. The coat just fits in the shoulders, arms and bust but is very roomy in the torso. The details say that it is 35" long, but the 2P is 32"long. I don't think it is a very warm coat but I live in the South and don't need it for warmth. I'm changing the buttons and wearing it as a cocktail coat, so I won't be wearing heavy clothing under it. I may have it altered next winter to give it a slimmer sillouette but it is okay. Also, it arrived very wrinkled. I could not steam out the wrinkles and actually had to iron it before I can wear it tonight to an event.

I received my "classic tweed coat" today. I love it good quality real nice texture great with some tall black boots. Reading other viewer it would be nice to bring the brown back. I would by the brown as well- Excellent coat- well made. Many Thanks Chadwick.

Love These Coats
I just love these coats and have been wearing them for years. I have it in Winter White, Brown, Camel, Rich Red and Black. I just had to order a new black one because the one I've had for years is beginning to show it. The moon pockets, vent in back and classic collar are so stylish. I get compliments all the time when wearing these coats. Thanks Chadwicks for keeping it in stock.
Very light coat, will be good for where I live in the Spring or early Fall. But enough room if I want to wear layers underneath for winter. I'm 5'4" 125lbs and wear small in most women size tops and size 5 dress. This coat in a 4 fits just right and on sale!! I got the pink and the color is muted. Almost looks like it has gray undertones, it looks vintage. I plan on changing out the buttons for more sparkly vintage type buttons to jazz it up. Great light coat, pretty pink, vintage styling & great price, 5 stars.
I ordered this coat in black a couple of years ago at regular price. This is great coat it is timesless. it looks good with jeans, pants, skirts, and dresses. This is great coat to have for many years. I cant wait to get it in pink color.
So many compliments
I had have this coat in black/white for several years and I still get so many compliments on it. It fits perfect and keep a trendy look. It dry cleans and holds up really well after all the wear. I love it! I am glad to see Chadwicks still carries it so I can buy another when I need it.
Colors are much different
I purchased both coats in a size up; The pink coat is like a soft English Rose and the blue coat is more soft Mint. I should have order my regular size but I am keeping them because they are sweet and my Irish sweaters will fit with plenty of room!
I've had this coat in Camel for many, many years but now it's beginning to look "old". I wanted to get a new one but my size is gone. I'll keep checking back. I get more compliments when I wear this coat than any other, much more expensive coasts.
