Rated 3 out of 5 by valuedrivenshopper Sizing does not seem right
I purchased this coat for my husband who does not like to go shopping. It wasn't available for store pick up, so I had to pay for shipping. I received it fairly quickly - much sooner than expected. The coat was well made and the wool was so soft. I bought the same size as the suits my husband wears, but this coat was huge on him. The sleeves were way too long and the coat overall was too large. I returned it to my local store and got a refund. I checked the store and they had the same coat in the next smaller size. I purchased it, but when my husband tried it on it was too small. I am not sure what the problem is, the smaller coat fit him snugly. I really think that the larger one was made wrong or miss sized. I ended up taking that coat back for a refund also. I was really disappointed because it really was a nice coat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TXShopper1234 Nice coat with a flaw
The coat looks very nice and does well in winter weather to keep you warm. Mind you that it's been in the 20s lately, and I feel very comfortable outside in it. The issue I have with it is the sewing on the buttons. The top button threads came loose after two weeks. I sewed it back on just to have the middle one come loose a week later. I can tell the bottom is on its way to becoming loose while I was sewing the middle one. Poor job at securing the other end of the thread. I was lucky to have caught it before I lost a button. If you don't mind having buttons resewn after purchasing, it's a good buy. I hoped to buy another, but they can't seem to keep 38S in stock so it looks like I'll be buying from another vendor.

Great buy for the money. Well made. Delivered on time. If I have any complaint at all, it would be that the sleeves are slightly too long. From what I understand the sleeves should cover the wrist and graze the hands. You shouldn’t be able to see any shirt cloth. This coat is about one half inch longer than that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Blargleblaggo Size Down For Slim Fit
Dropping down one size will take this from "Classic" to "Slim" fit, and still give you enough room to get a reasonable jacket underneath. The cut is very slimming and sleek, which gives the coat a very formal or businesslike look.
The coat isn't heavy enough to serve as your only layer, but over a heavy sweater, sportcoat, or suit, you should be warm enough for most climates, provided you bring a scarf.
Material is soft and fairly lightweight, which is good for a coat of this length. The lining is very smooth and slick, so it's easy to get on/off over another jacket.
The interior scarf pocket is a nice touch.
One caveat- the exterior pockets are basted shut, and one of the pockets on my coat were not properly basted, which caused the lining to separate from the material. An easy repair, but still a QC issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NEOhioJCP Stafford Today Isn't Stafford of 8 years ago...
Coat was correct size and arrived quickly. My only issue is the fabric (wool) seemed of considerably lower weight/ thickness than the one I purchase nearly 10 years ago. The old one held up so well, I thought I'd get a new one. It seems the recent issues/changes that JCPenney has undergone has made it's way to product quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kneeknee VERY nice topcoat!
My son wanted one of these coats so when I saw it on sale in the store for less than on JCP.com, plus XX% off and my reward points, I jumped at the opportunity! I purchased a regular for his 6'3" height and the sleeves and length were perfect. I also had to order a size up (44 instead of 42) because it was a little tight under the arms with his suit jacket on. The charcoal is a very masculine color that won't show pet hair as much. Absoutely no quality control issues on it. Highly recommend this coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mizjg looks so-o-o good on him...
My husband is unbelievably picky, but when I saw this coat, I couldn't resist. Bought it, wrapped it up, put it under the tree. When he opened it, he put it on and yikes! it was just a smidge too tight. Off to the Penny store in hopes they would have another in the same color one size larger. Success! He has worn it every chance he gets since then. Way to go, Pennys!

Rated 4 out of 5 by damade Nice coat...but failed quality standards
The coat itself is was/is a great value for the price. However it must have been made on a Monday morning or a late Friday afternoon.
The three buttons were literally hanging by a thread and when I took it to have the buttons re-sewn the tailor found an inside seam that was not sewn, it was missed entirely. Nice coat but lousy quality control.
