MADE BY EILEEN FISHER EXCLUSIVELY FOR GARNET HILL Make a statement in this pure wool wonder, featuring a beautiful stand collar, large snap buttons, and elegant seam details on the front and back. Three-quarter length. By Eileen Fisher. Imported.
This coat is beautifully constructed and always looks elegant, whatever the context. The pockets are ample and deep, the sleeves adjustable for any arm length, and the buttons secure the front perfectly. It is soft, light-weight and looks great with or without a scarf. All it needs is another in a different color.
This is one of my favorite purchases from GH, and there have been many. Such a classy, timeless coat; I wear it nearly every day. I did size up from True Fit's recommendation of PS to a PM because I felt I needed more room to layer this over sweaters (it's COLD here in WI) and it fits perfectly. Sleeves are a little long, but I like them that way. Do not hesitate to buy this one.
I was so disappointed in the quality of this coat. The fabric was so thin. I purchased the grey. It arrived squished in a plastic bag and very wrinkled with pillie balls scattered over it. Eileen Fisher Brand name is associated with high quality; not this garment.
I am a proud owner of many Eileen Fisher garments but was extremely disappointed when I received this poorly designed, poor quality coat. VERY unflattering and frumpy look. Definitely NOT up to the usually high standards and quality for Eileen Fisher items. Not worth the price for this coat!

We're so sorry to hear about your disappointment, but are glad to see you've been contacted by a Customer Care Specialist to find a resolution. Remember, if you’re not completely satisfied with your purchase, returns and exchanges are welcome at any time.
I did not like this item at all. I thought it was much thicker for cold weather, but it's actually more of a spring jacket. It was very coarse, not soft as I expected and from other reviews. The price was low when I bought but it went back up two days later when I return to site??!!

We're sorry to hear that this coat did not meet your expectations. We hope when you returned the coat, that you took advantage of our freight free exchanges to try one of our other great coats.
I ordered this in black and it is great quality and fit. I had wanted a grey one but they were out and customer service called to say that one was returned. The grey was a petite and didn't fit, but the quality was completely different. The fabric was thinner and had fuzz balls on it. It didn't look nearly the quality of the black coat. I kept the black.
I was set to dislike this coat when it arrived in the grey plastic bag rather than a cardboard box; therein is the glory. This is a lightweight, yet warm coat; not bulky at all. It looks great with jeans & boots or skirt & scarf. I ordered XS reg vs XS petite cause I like my coat sleeves a bit longer. I am 5'1 & 120 lbs. & it fits great. Love the coat!
i ordered my regular Eileen fisher Size XS (small in others, XS in GH) snug/fitted in the shoulder, very big all over. unflattering & not elegant , just casual ( in grey ). good quality, comfortable, warm and lightweight.
I think Eileen Fisher clothing is high quality and full of style; however, not this coat. I just returned it because it is homely looking and way overpriced for a coat with no lining. It was also a huge lint collector.
I ordered the "Petite Petite" size and the sleeves were also about one inch too long--which would have meant an alteration cost on top of a ridiculously out-of-line price (and I got it on sale!)
I'd had my eye on this jacket for months, but when I bought my usual size, a PL, it looked much more fitted than depicted. My husband said sort of like a long Mao jacket, and it clung tightly at various unflattering points, so I had to return it. Too bad.

We agree this coat is a slight a line fit! We value your input and will pass along to our design team. One of our other styles may work better, call if we can help with your return.
AS SOON AS I PULLED THIS COAT OUT OF THE BAG I KNEW I WAS GOING TO ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! THE MEDIUM IS A LITTLE ROOMY BUT GREAT WHEN I HAVE ON A SWEATER UNDERNEATH. I WOULD ORDER THIS AGAIN IN ANY COLOUR AVAILABLE!
this coat is now the backbone of my wardrobe. It looks great with pants or skirts, even wear it with jeans. We went into a very cold period right after it arrived & I was wearing it every time I had to go out, even for dog walking. It is warm, comfortable, & even has pockets.
I wear Eileen Fisher very often, and I love this new coat. It has a very flattering line and I love that it can be worn (and will look good!) open or closed. I already know that this boiled wool fabric is very durable...I just hung my new coat next to a EF boiled wool jacket that I've been wearing for 15 years!
I LOVE this coat! This coat surely stands out as being high quality - it is simply elegant - yet very practical. The Ash is the perfect grey to go with almost everything. The wool is a heavy weight and with a sweater underneath could be worn on most winter days. Having the snaps adds such a great touch to this coat. At 5'3", the coat hits me a few inches above the knee - making it all the more warm. I have been wearing a colorful scarf to peek out underneath the collar - easily changing the look to go with my mood or the occasion. I am thinking purchasing the black as well!
