Just received my jacket, and I am very conflicted. On one hand, it is super soft and looks cute because it is very fitted. I am 5'8" and 125 pounds, I bought small, the body fits nice, but as others have reported, the arms are snug. The other problem is the collar, it is too thick to lay down, I have remedied this by folding the back of the collar down and safety pinning it. The question is, should I have to do that. I got a good price elsewhere, $45, so I am tempted to keep it. I did buy it in small, knowing that I was not going to try and wear a sweater underneath. I haven't even washed it yet, and it seems to shed very little. I think a Medium would not fit as nice in the body, which defeats the purpose of buying a fitted jacket, was trying to avoid looking like a giant stuffed black bear.
Update- I returned the jacket, as I felt like one elbow was sewn smaller than the other. I requested another, same size, and the collar on the new one does lay down on it's own. The arms feel OK, still snug, but more equal. I am pretty happy with it now.
