Feel Like a Yeti
This is a beautiful coat....on the model. The fit is quite boxy. I'm large busted, but not otherwise overweight. The jacket made me feel/look like a yeti. The shearling is beautiful, but heavy. The sleeves are lined in shearling so you must hold on to the sleeves of your top as you put the jacket on. Otherwise, your shirt sleeves will end up at your shoulders as you pull on the jacket. Also on this point, you wouldn't be able to wear a top with thick or heavy sleeves or you'd end up like Randy, the kid in that Christmas movie who couldn't put his arms down. Probably looks fabulous on super thin and smaller busted women. I rated it lower on value because the price before sale was just crazy high. Haven't decided whether to send it back even though I know it doesn't really flatter my figure. It is pretty by itself.
Chamonix Shearling Jacket
Best purchase ever. This jacket is warm and beautiful. I have had so many compliments on this and it looks very expensive. I would say it is one of the nicest jackets I have ever had and glad I decided to pay the price for it.
Pretty Jacket but the fit missed the mark.
Pretty Jacket and it is an exceptional value with the sale price and added discount. However I returned it sadly due to too small across the chest (and I am small chested) but too large in the waist .. making it tight yet boxy. I have a trim straight shape at 5'6"" 135 and it did not flatter me at all. The sleeves are shearling lined but the jacket itself is not. I wish the zipper went all the way up to the top of collar but it does not. Pretty jacket if you can get the fit to work for you. I ordered a Medium. Waist ran large and the chest ran small.
I just received this coat and absolutely love it! I got the medium and I wear a size 6 jean and med/sm top. The fit is perfect. I found the coat to be flexible and of high quality. It is not fitted. I bought it at the sale price, so I think it is a good deal. I would highly recommend this coat!!! Another great coat from TTA!
I bought this as an after Christmas gift for my fiance and she loves it. She says it's the nicest jacket she has ever had. Buy it for the one you love, She'll love the jacket and you for getting it.
This jacket looked really great in the catalgue but I was very disapointed when it arrived. I agree with the other review that the cut is a little boxy, but I think that's the styling and probably OK depending on what you are looking for. However, the shearling leather is quite rough and even worse the ""fluffy"" side of the leather feels like scratchy carpeting. In fact it's so rough I question whether it's real fur or some immitation glued on to the leather. I would NOT recommend this jacket at all. You can get a lot better and softer quality, even at this price point for shearling. Based on my experience with this coat it is unlikely I'll ever risk buying a coat from TTA again. Unfortunately I threw out the packing slip and am now stuck with it. I will probably give it away to Goodwill.

This is not your typical shearling - unusual and cute - not frumpy nor bulky. I am normally XS or S (5'5"", 120 lbs, small chest). I ordered both S and M in this because need extra room in winter to accommodate sweaters underneath. The Medium was overall too big and sleeves too long. The Small was roomy enough without looking dumpy. Found myself wearing this even when it wasn't all that cold just because I like it!
This jacket is absolutely beautiful and looks extremely expensive. The smoke color is kind of greenish gray. It is unusual styling with the shearling in the outside of the body. I've worn it over a shirts and sweaters, with jeans and dressier clothing, to work and to classes, and I have gotten many compliments. Yes, the shape is boxy, but it is very cute. And warm!!! The suede is soft and supple. The shearling is not as soft as the inside of your Uggs, but it is much sturdier and will last. It is certainly soft though. I have wanted a shearling coat forever... With the sale price and the additional 40% off recently, I decided to go for it. I am very glad I did. I am 5'7"" 143 lbs, 36C and wear a 6-10 depending on the brand and cut. I got the medium in this jacket and it's perfect.
