I decided this year was the year I was going to invest the perfect, full length wool coat. I was ready to take my time and look at all my options. But when I tried on this Dearborn Coat it was love at first sight. It is everything I wanted - the intentional design, the fit, the quality are all top notch. I am so excited it's mine! Thank you, Liz for designing and making such a gorgeous coat!
This coat is magnificent, even better in person than it appears online. The quality is stunning, from the rich warm fabric to the many style and tailoring details. I thought long and hard before making this purchase as I’ve never paid this much for any garment before but feel this is a worthy treat for my [high number] birthday and will enjoy it for years to come. Supporting a small business and connecting with the designer makes this even more special; thanks again to Liz for her flexibility with exchanges -- I tried three sizes before I found the perfect fit!
This is such a gorgeous coat. Quality US made fabric of wool and cashmere. A rich black that almost has a bit of navy in it. A body and arm length that fits my tall self. Flattering yet practical cut. Every last detail meticulous, quality, and aesthetically pleasing, yet it manages to look unfussy and classic. Plus, I can tell it will be warm enough for most days in the Canadian Rockies. Grateful and proud to wear it.
The coat arrived securely packaged on a hanger and in a garment bag. (That’s kind of a big deal when you are making such a big investment in a purchase). The coat fits nicely. The fabric is gorgeous. I very much like the magnetic closures. I am 6 ft tall so I am on the taller end of your customer base. If I were tailoring just for me, I would make the arms a little longer. I like the look of the cuff, but I lose the cuff to accommodate my arm length. The body of the coat comes to just underneath my knee which is fine; if I could make something just for me, I’d probably add a couple of inches to the overall length; I just like midi length dresses, and I would like a coat that covers a dress. Bottom line, I am happy with the quality of the coat and am willing to compromise a bit on fit to get such fine quality.
