Love this jacket! I wasn't sure what size to order in this as I wasn't familiar with the Free People brand. I decided to go with a size because 1) that was the only size available at the time and 2) I'm normally a 2 or a 4 (XS or small) in jackets. Since other reviewers said this ran small, I risked it. So glad I did! The 6 fit perfect. Any smaller and it wouldn't have fit in the arms and possibly not the chest. the jacket itself is very well made. The tweed is a bit heavier than I thought it would be but that's not a drawback as you can then wear it out when the weather isn't cold enough for heavy coat. Love the zip detail on the sleeves and even the fact that jacket closes with a zipper since that's not really typical. The colors of this make it wearable with blacks as well as browns and really, olive as well as burnt orange. I would recommend sizing up at least a full size but other than that, this jacket is a classic investment you'll be able to hang on to and wear for years.
i tried on this item at two different stores in two different sizes.i am generally a size 10. i first tried a size 8 because, that was the largest available, although, on the narrow side, it zippered up but, felt snug. too snug for comfort but, i thought a 10 should fit me fine.i went to anther store and tried a size 10. this 10 felt much like the 8 from the other store. it zipped up but, the arms and shoulders were tight . the 8 almost felt better on me. unfortunately, a size ten is the largest they make it in.i looked over the craftmanship of the jacket and found the stretchy jersey lining to be part of the problem. it pulls and bunches as you put your arm in it. you would think they would line this with satin .it's a beautiful looking jacket but, poorly executed.
