I am giving it 2 stars only b/c I love the fur and the color of the fur. Had I known there were large panel like pleather strips (not real leather at all) extending all the way down both sides of the coat and inner arms of the coat, i would not have bought this. This is a poor design given it's Jones of NY. the fur is a gorgeous shade (very well done and soft) and one I was unable to find anywhere. I love the length, the arm length, etc. I thought it was a bonus that it was a convertible vest...naturally I thought the way it was constructed would be canvas and zippers or something. Something you could not see when you wore it as a coat. Silly me. Not at all. Be warned that the pleather is VERY noticeable and looks cheap. It's not at all shown in the picture b/c she has her hands in her pockets and arms down. the strip is WIDE on both sides and on the inside of the arm. looks terrible!! I'm so disappointed b/c I love the fur and color of the fur. that part was what I was looking for so i'm currently debating on returning this. I don't know that I can see myself being ok about the very noticeable pleather parts on the sides. Really Jones of NY? what were you thinking!?? the fur could have easily gone 'around' the sides and all the way down the arms. OR it could be a smaller strip and made of 'real' leather for the price. it's so obvious it's not real leather. Just be warned and know what to expect as the picture completely conceals this part brilliantly.
