Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart comfortable jacket Have just purchased this long jacket in the sales. I wanted something I could wear over smart summer or autumn clothes on a trip where temperatures will vary a lot. But I can see it will be useful in the winter too. It hangs beautifully despite the fact that it is unlined. It looks smart but feels comfortable and will be easy to use as a warm layer over lots of different outfits. Looks good with both dresses and trousers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from misleading This is a very cozy warm heavy OVERSIZED sweater. Had it been listed as a sweater I would not have purchased it. It is very nice, but I want to be clear it is simply not a coat. It has no structure. It is so oversized that I cannot wear even the x small. The way the shawl collar and dropped shoulder falls it makes my shoulders look narrow and the way the pockets pooch out it makes my hips look large. Obviously it is unflattering on my 5'3" frame. I would recommend it for someone taller who wants a warm cozy think heavy sweater. Do not purchase thinking of it as a coat because the fabric simply doesn't hold up to that distinction. It would be lovely as a robe to wear while lounging around the house on cold evenings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning! I am so thrilled with this purchase! I bought it in the white. Last year I reviewed the Kotzebue Blanket Coat, which I thought was beautiful but was disappointed to find that it just wasn't right for my body type -- I'm 5'5", usually a size 8, narrow shoulders, long-waisted so my legs aren't long, and the Kotzebue was just too much coat for me, even in the XS/S. I think it would work best on a tall, leggy, more broad-shouldered gal. I was so sad to leave it behind. But then, this year, along came the Bergen! It's similar to the Kotzebue but leaner and a tad more structured and formal, and cut just differently enough so that it fit me perfectly. It's gorgeous -- and soft and so warm and cozy. I think I'll be able to wear it right into the early part of the winter, maybe longer. I feel so elegant when I put it on! I think this is my favorite PC purchase yet...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from big and lovely This is a very oversized sweater. Size down. It is big and cozy. Good value, and think it can be worn as a coat now and later in the cold months can be worn as a layering piece under a big coat. I bought the white which I hope can be dressed up or down. Haven't worn it over dark colors, so do not know if it will shed. Will report back if it does.
