now I know...
I always wondered why reviews of leather items on this site didn't make sense, in that one person would rave about the great quality, and the next person would talk about how bad it was. I wanted a 10 Tall in the black coat. It wasn't available, so I ordered an 8 Tall and a 10 Regular to see if either would fit. The coats arrived and were identical in style. However, the leather was completely different. The 10 was lovely leather. Soft, supple, nice sheen but not shiny. The 8 Tall was stiffer, uncomfortable leather and it looked like black plastic. Fortunately for me, the 10 fit the best of I would have sent them both back. I would give the 10 coat 5 stars for the price, and 1 star for the 8 Tall. Thus, I'll go with 4 stars for this review. I kept the 10 and I love it. So now I know the quality can change from item to item, even if they are supposed to be the same product.
versatile leather coat
Finally found a nice black leather coat to replace my old one. Like its versatility with or without the belt, opened or closed. Fine addition to my leather outfits.

Love this coat! It is the perfect leather coat for layering. I got the black and love how soft the leather is and there is no overpowering smell to me.
Love this coat.
I bought this coat 2 yrs ago , I think it's a nice coat in fact I'm ordering another one for a Xmas gift for a employee. I love the fact in comes in tall. We are both tall woman.
I am completely disappointed in this coat! I hesitated in purchasing it because there was only one review, albeit a favorable one, but it was based on the reviewer's purchase from five years ago. I wanted to be pleased with this coat and hoped that I was getting a great deal. I figured I would even get another color if I was happy about the product. However, that is not the case. Upon opening the coat, two things stood out immediately: the rough feel and the odd smell. The coat looks like a soft leather on the site, but it's actually quite rough to the touch and makes noises when you handle it. The smell is not the familiar genuine leather smell. The quality of this coat is very cheap and I would NOT recommend anyone purchasing. In fact, I am returning mine today.
