I had my doubts about buying this coat, because I thought it was going to have a rubbery feel on the fabric for been a rainproof jacket, but I was wrong, the material feels like cotton, and the cut is European (semi-fitted and in a subtle v-shape from the waist down), similar to a formal Emporio Armani and a Robert Cavalli long coats (that I own), which cost a lot more, which adds to the overall value of this coat at a bargain price. Many complain about the hood but for me, it fits right, not too tight and not too loose, perfectly designed to keep the chilling winds and cold out, the way it should for a winter jacket that can withstand -30 or even -20 degrees, keeping you toasty warm. I bought the black color so I can wear it with any color scheme, dress it down with a collar shirt with a tie for the office, or down with a sporty fleece or polyester underlayer for an evening date with my girl, which makes the coat versatile, sophisticated, and stylish in semi-formal and casual settings. In sum, this is one beautiful winter coat!
