I have owned a similar "coat" before ordering this one. So I knew this wouldn't be something to wear out in heavy weather, it is closer to a cross between a small pea coat and a wool flannel shirt. It is very stylish and somewhat unique and my significant other gets many complements on it.
She hasn't complained about the wool itching but she is always wearing it over a long sleeve shirt, also since it was a gift maybe she doesn't want to complain :) Anyway, it was a successful buy for me. I suppose the price is a bit high for what it is, one of 2 reasons to take off a star, that and the pockets aren't very useful (like many women's clothes) so I end up carrying stuff if she isn't bringing her purse.
Very nice light weight unlined jacket. Styled for a woman, with slightly fitted details. The fabric is very nice and with nice subtle heather tones in the design. The fit is pretty right on, I wear a large and it fit nicely! The yoke in back is lined and does make it easier to slip into. Overall very pleased with this purchase.
