Autumn Sweater Coat
I love this coat. It is true that the arms are very long, and though you would think the decorative ties on the wrists would serve some purpose, like for instance, allowing you to roll up the sleeve and fasten it, they don't...ah well...
However, I bought one, rolled up the sleeve a bit and found it so super warm (it's 18 degrees here) under my down coat, and then in a workplace with inadequate heat (comfortable while everyone else was shivering) that I went ahead and ordered two more in the other colors. It is true that it is more itchy and heavier than the previous cotton long sweaters - but it's also much warmer because it's heavier and it's wool. It''s comfortable enough if it's worn as a second layer, and not over something like a shell - but over something like a long sleeved shirt, which I think was the idea. I think the biggest problem is the sleeves are really disproportionately long. The pockets you can pat down to sit straight. And I think the decorative straps should do something, like make it tighter or looser instead of just being decorative. But overall I love it

Beautiful sweater for winter
I am a solid Large but got this in a medium based on other comments. I am very happy with the fit. I have worn this sweater with jeans and then with a shift dress to work and got compliments both times. It is very versatile and I imagine i will get good use out of it this winter.

Beautiful sweater coat
Bought this sweater in marathon orange. Normally, I would wear a medium in Hanna but this sweater did run large so I purchased the small. Great fitting, smart looking, and very warm (I live in the Northeast). The staff at the store was very kind as well. Great find !

Beautiful color, classic design and so nice and warm on these autumn mornings. The other reviews advised that the sweater runs a bit large so I ordered one size down. It fits perfectly.

Could have been a much better sweater
I really liked this sweater on the model, but it just did not hang the same way on me. As another customer pointed out, the sweater made my hips look huge, as the sides of this sweater stuck out right at the low hip area. Also, the fabric was very itchy. I have sensitive skin and have counted on Hanna Anderson for really comfortable fabrics and flattering clothing. You really missed the mark this year. Please bring back a classic sweater coat in a cotton blend! I have one that I purchased years ago from Hanna Anderson that I loved. This sweater would have been wonderful in a cotton blend and a slight adjustment to the hip area.

Lovely Autumn Sweater Coat
I bought this sweater coat in the Harvest color and XL. I am 5'10'' and it fits like a dream. I am so pleased with this purchase. I've worn it several times with both skirts and jeans and have received numerous compliments.

Love the sweater but runs HUGE
Like another reviewer, I was in love with this sweater when I saw in the catalog. On a 20% off day, I immediately bought it. I bought the XS since reviews say it runs large (I'm 5'6" 120lbs). I was so excited when I received it, but it was just huge and looked super frumpy on me. I would think the XS is more like a normal M. Sadly it was returned.

I'm in love and very happy
Ive had my eye on this for a while, so while I was visiting in Portland I stopped in the Flanders store and purchase the black.
I love it. It does run really big. I wear a 12-14 top and can wear a medium/ large if I'm going to layer more.
I might just have to order the orange now too! It is a heavy sweater but for Texas it will be my jacket! :)
