Wool varsity bomber jacket (HO14, B4038, $178) runs XXS – XXL. The color is called heather carbon (HCA). Made in the Philippines. 60% wool, 25% poly, 15% viscose, 100% poly fill, 100% poly lining, 100% acrylic rib trim.
12/9 – $88.99 online
Size S – TTS. The fit was good. The arms are a little long, but they didn’t look too-too long. I’m 5’0″. My arms are average in length for a petite, not particularly short.
Novelty quilted puffer vest (HO14, 02533, $108) – Color code BCG. Not online at the moment. New arrivals are expected to show online on 11/20. Made in Vietnam. 100% poly, 60% down + waterfowl feathers fill, 100% poly lining.
Every time I’ve tried a S in the retail or factory versions of this vest, there’s always extra material at the under arm. For that reason, I size down one to XS. I’m 37″ across the fullest part of my chest. Sizing down might not work for you if you want to wear a thick sweater under.
Toggle coat (HO14, $258) runs regular 00 – 12 (A9643) and petite 00 – 12 (A9645). Color choices are black and warm almond (off white/cream). 60% wool, 25% poly, 15% viscose, 100% poly lining.
11/7 – 40% off in-store, according to tags hanging from the coats.
Size 4 – The size 4 fit exactly and felt comfortable. However, I only had a t-shirt on under, so essentially bare arms. I never wear thick sweaters under jackets because of my climate, but if it’s cold enough for this then I’m wearing a top with long sleeves. I would get the 6 or 8P.
There are 2 sets of pockets. Welt pockets and larger patch pockets.
The sleeves fit exactly. When I stretch my arms across, they look tight, but they didn’t feel too tight. Again, I’m essentially sleeveless under this. I only have on a short-sleeve tee and the red check vest.
The hood felt like it would stay on easily. I don’t’ think those are real leather toggles.
