Rated 5 out of 5 by Emilie Excellent coat - truly classic
I tried this camel hair coat on this weekend...I'd been drooling over BB's camel hair coats for years, but never could quite justify the purchase to myself. That, however, was before I tried the coat on. After seeing how perfectly the coat fit, it was a *must have item*. Not only does it fit perfectly, it just screams "classy" (in that understated, BB way). This coat, an Hermes scarf, and an ostrich or alligator bag...that's all one needs for fall/winter. Look good, feel good...with such a classic coat, that feeling should last for a number of years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mikeric Nice coat with one cost-cutting measure
I purchased this coat for my girlfriend. The quality of the camel is very good and the coat has some heft to it. Not quite as nice as a cashmere coat, but pretty close. It fits well, and as others have noted, has a flattering curve to it without having to use a belt.
My only complaint is the use of plastic buttons on the coat. The man's version uses horn buttons and I would have expected the same quality standard on the woman's clothing. Buttons can be changed out, but I like when a manufacturer pays attention to details like that.
Overall my girlfriend is very happy with the coat and I expect it o last for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Greenbird A gorgeous coat
This coat was everything I expected it to be. It is beautiful, well-made, and warm. The fit is slightly small, but it was not a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Elena Classic, yet Contemporary
I was looking for a long coat to replace my worn dress coat from college days. In this price range, I obviously wanted a coat that was of high quality and timeless style but didn't look dowdy. This coat is perfect! The style has clean, slightly fitted lines and a great cuff detail on the sleeve that makes it fresh and contemporary. The fit is perfect, and construction high quality - the lining detailing with grosgrain ribbon at the waist reflects the attention to even the smallest details. A great investment in a wardrobe basic.

Rated 5 out of 5 Wonderful fit, luxurious material
I found this coat in a size 0 at the Brooks Brothers outlet in Palm Springs and to my surprise, it fit me perfectly! What really caught my attention was the shape of the torso - no other coat so subtly tapers and defines your waist. I'll be wearing this every day for winter in Italy and am looking forward to pairing it with my new BB leather bag! Perfect stitching, cuffs, placement. Timeless, classic, will last another 30 years.
