Rated 3 out of 5 by from Smart looking jacket Great looking jacket, have received lots of compliments on plum color.
Date published: 2018-01-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This coat exceeded my expectations. I love this coat and know it will give me great service during cold and/or rainy and cool weather.
Date published: 2018-01-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Color I ordered is not true Coat fits well, but the garnet color I ordered is more of what I would call burnt orange.
Date published: 2017-12-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fabric not right for me, buttons too tight When I think of suede, I don't think of a material with any nap to speak of, but this coat looks like a long-haired velvet. Also the Teaberry color I ordered did not look like the color in the catalog/online picture......that is a problem with online ordering....in the picture it appears to be in between pink and lavender, but it is a darkish mauve color, not at all flattering to my coloring. The third reason I sent it back was the BUTTONS ! Those are SO tight, it was all I could do to button and unbutton them, and that is NOT acceptable. When I put on my coat I don't want to spend 5 min. wrestling with the buttons and then have to have my husband fasten them with his strong hands. For those reasons I sent it back. Otherwise: The fit seems true to size, and the coat is really warm with the lining in. If the issues listed above will not be a problem for you, then I recommend it. Otherwise, no.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Versitile Coat I have been looking for a red coat so thought I would try this one. I rated it highly because it is truly lovely but I returned it because it was not exactly what I was looking for. I would have liked the hood to not be so roomy and to be lined for more warmth. I ordered my usual PS and the fit was fine. So, if you don't mind a less-than-cozy hood, you will enjoy this coat.
Date published: 2017-12-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Over all a very attractive coat and a good value I PARTICULARLY LIKE THE BUTTON OUT LINING. THE OVERALL WEIGHT IS GOOD AND THE COAT IS NOT BULKY.
Date published: 2017-11-08
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product is ok but condition was deplorable Product arrived filthy. It looked like it had been dragged across a shop floor. I returned product but am very disappointed that my $30 overnight shipping cost was not refunded. I needed the garment for a trip and so paid for overnight shipping, only to find I couldn't keep the product and had to quickly find a store that still had a raincoat in stock.
Date published: 2017-06-08
Rated 1 out of 5 by from On two tries, both too big, I gave up. I really loved the color. I ordered my first one a little large due to so many mail-order garments being small. It was much too big. Ordered exchange. That one was too big. The buttonholes were too small. The buttons could barely be forced through them.

BEST ANSWER: I have a Misses Medium. The center back (top of the back of the collar to back hem) is 37 inches. On the side, shoulder seam to hem is 32 inches.

does it have a zip in - zip out liner?
A shopper on Feb 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The lining buttons on and off as does the hood. This is a light weight coat which is perfect for Florida
where I live. However, I did take it to London last year in May and it was adequate. Doesn't seem
to wrinkle. I have hand carried it on a plane four times in the last year and no trouble with wrinkling.

The Microsuede Malmacaan Coat shows a Indigo color that in the catalog looks Navy but on line the color looks medium blue. Which is it?
A shopper on Apr 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They have a habit of showing ll different colors. The one I sent back was between a royal and a navy. It was not the light blue. My daughter didn't want it.I bought the periwinkle for myself.
Is this a winter coat?
A shopper on Nov 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is a medium-weight coat that is warm enough for fall and fairly cold winter days. I have worn mine with a sweater or layers under it and been comfortable even on colder days, but it isn't a "storm parka." Overall, I am very satisfied with it.
Is this a swing-style coat?
Mom's shopper on Dec 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I wouldn't call it a swing coat. It looks a little fuller on the picture than it is. I would maybe call it a car coat. It's a very nice coat--soft microsuede and a nice button out liner.
what is the color of the lining of the periwinkle coat?
A shopper on Jan 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I purchased the coat in a teal color...very pretty. The lining which buttons in is a non descript brown-charcoal. Hope that helps!
is the microsuede balmacaan coat warm? Are the sleeves lined with satiny fabric?
A shopper on Dec 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is warmer than a usual casual unlined lightweight jacket. I live near Cincinnati and this is appropriate for coldest spring days and a chilly fall day (but not a cold one). I particularly liked this coat for 3 reasons:
1). Not often I find one in this beautiful blue.
2). It's weight makes it very flexible for me depending on the weather. All my previous coats were either too lightweight or too heavy. This provides a unique position of being right between those two categories.
3). It is a dressy coat. Catches peoples' eyes because of the nice-looking fabric.

Washes well. (Not liner of course)
Very happy with it.

Yes, the sleeves are line with the satiny fabric. But, remember it also has a detachable inner liner.
Is it water resistant?
Frannie on Aug 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This coat is water resistant, as in running from the car to the store in a downpour. I do not know how resistant it would be if standing in rain for any length of time - at a bus stop. I have not had that circumstance to know. I do like the coat.
What is country of origin?
A shopper on Mar 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The label indicates that the coat was made in China. I have an almost identical coat that I purchased a couple of years ago and it was made in Vietnam. The coat made in 'Nam is a better fit in the shoulders. The one from China is tighter in the shoulders. I've noted this tendency in other clothes that were made in China. Somebody needs to remind them that we Americans are not built the same as they are. Several friends have noticed the same tendency.
Is the fit skimpy or generous?
A shopper on Mar 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The fit is very skimpy
If you wear a size 14P on tops would you purchase a PL or PXL in this coat?
white fox on Jan 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I do not wear this size.
does this coat have raglin sleeves?
A shopper on Nov 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The sleeves of this coat are constructed differently on the back from the front and then joined at the shoulder seam which lies to the front of the natural shoulder. The front sleeve is "set in," but the back sleeve extending over the top of the shoulder is raglan and allows the back of the coat to hang from the shoulders
without pulling across the back as can be a problem in garments with set in sleeves.
What is the difference between size XL and size 1x?
Alessandra L on Oct 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm afraid I can't help you there - I wear an "L". I can tell you that my husband wishes he could find a similar coat for himself! I easily got three season's wear out of it.
Does the 'juniper' have a yellow or a blue cast to it?
A shopper on Nov 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No. The color is a soft medium-light shade of green.
Will this keep me warm in a Massachusetts winter? Not hanging around outside, go in and out of car mostly
virginia b on Oct 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: In winter, yes, if your car is warm when you get in and if you have a high tolerance for cold. Better for fall and spring.
Does this jacket have a zipper? Thanks!
Mary M on Nov 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, it buttons up the front. I don't understand why Appleseed's was not able to answer this question, though.
What is the length of a small petite ?
A shopper on Nov 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Measurements:Misses 35" long, Petite 33" long, Womens 37" long
Will this coat withstand a downpour? Will it dry quickly? I live in the Pacific North West; it is wet.
Lee T on Feb 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Well, Lee, today I wore mine in a downpour with strong winds and it did just fine. I live in Western New York and we get our share of storms too. When I got home, I draped it over a chair to dry out before hanging it up in the closet. If I had to buy a coat again, I would not hesitate of re-order the same one. Love it!
Does this coat zip, button, or both?
Susan S on Nov 11, 2017

cinie n on Sep 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The length for Misses is 35" long, Petite 33" long, and Womens 37" long.
Is the hood adjustable? I have very short hair, wear a small or medium hat, and find most hoods too big unless they're adjustable.
A shopper on Jul 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: button-off hood, but not adjustable
Has the lining and liner construction issue been corrected? I like the coat but have returned two because of the way the front hangs.
