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.
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!)
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!
This is a perfect all around coat. Wear with jeans or dress it up. Throw a different color scarf on and you change the "look." Too cold out?...Just put a warm sweater underneath. This is my best "go to" piece in my wardrobe. LOVE it!
The coat i s beautiful, fits my EF size M (outerwesr) body perfectly! I must have short arms cuz the coat doesn't fit like a 3/4 length...sleeves end at my wrist. The coat is not lined but it isnt itchy....feels soft! I have fine motor difficulty which makes the large snaps easy to manage. For me this is the perfect coat!
I am a huge GH fan and order frequently. I have never returned anything but this is going back. Terrible quality of wool and the huge snaps cause puckering at closure. I hate to say this, but it looks like a horse blanket.
