Magnolia Anorak By London Fog&#174
A perfect coat for chilly days
I purchased this coat with the intention of replacing an old barn jacket that had seen better days. This coat was a tad warmer than I expected, given the nylon lining. Since I tend to get hot easily, I found that I couldn't wear it as much on the slightly cool spring days, especially in the car. But on the colder days, I found it to be great. The hood is detachable, and I did try it without it once, but I thought the coat looked sharper with it on than without. There's a waist-height drawsting on the inside to give it more of a tailored look, but I never use it. I thought the coat seemed and looked just fine as is. The collar stands high, so I find it hits my jawline more than other coats when I turn my head sideways, but it covers the neck pretty well when zipped. I like how the coat hangs lower also, like my barn jacket did. The other reviews were helpful in recommending to go a size larger, which is what I did, and it fit perfectly when I did that.

the perfect jacket for me
From reading other reviews and trying London Fog in the stores I found that ordering a size up made everything fit OK. I am 4'7" with short arms to boot. No alterations needed. The sleeves have 2 snaps to tighten them and I use the tighter of the 2 snaps. The length is perfect I have had many compliments on this jacket. I ordered it in navy and am very pleased.

Nice looking jacket
This is very nice quality. I bought two! It is for spring, summer, or fall. Nice detachable hood, and plenty of deep pockets.

fine if you order 2 sizes up
1X is much smaller than my Cabin Creek jacket in XL. Disappointed in this because the jacket is really a pretty color.

London Fog is one of my favorite brands for rain.
Nice material, color is beautiful, love pockets and length of coat, bought because I like London Fog and hoods.

too short waisted
tie at waist was too high for me... hated to send it back because color was just what I wanted and quality great otherwise

Great for playground duty
Here in VA, you get many days in the 50's/60's three seasons of the year. The coat is perfect weight for when I have playground duty. I can pull the hood up if it is windy. It looks good with dressy pants or jeans. I can put a sweater underneath if I need to. I felt the sale price made it an excellent purchase.
