Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit! The smile started as i moved the tissue paper aside and glimpsed the beautiful color of charcoal gray. Not too dark, not too light. I gently removed this lovely coat folded so carefully in its box. Not a light coat, but not heavy either. Slipping it on I was delighted to find that it fit perfectly. I am almost 5'9" and weigh 115 lbs. and had chosen the xs. I spent the next half hour in this coat, simply too smitten to take it off! I have been watching this coat for several years, and am so happy I decided to purchase this garment. Thank you Peruvian Connection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Refined Elligance This coat is the most beautiful coat I have ever purchased. The design is timeless. I have been looking at alpaca coats for a long time. Worth the wait. I have had nothing but compliments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great colour lovely coat & colour. soft & warm but I think you need to be tall. at 5' 2" it was almost on the floor & the sleeves were much too long. if I had taken the hem up 8/10" I think it would spoil the line so I returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous fabric recommend one size smaller I took my measurements and thought the large might be a tight fit. It turned out I should have ordered a size smaller. When I put it on, I could wrap myself. And who wouldn't want to. The fabric and liner was so wonderful I just couldn't help stroking the coat! Then I recommended the website to my step sister and she already has her cart full. Thank you Peruvian Connection.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be a great coat I got one size down as other reviewers suggested. Still way too long--both hemline and sleeves--and tent-like. I thought about getting the back pleat stitched down to below the knee, which would have fixed the tent shape. But then one size down would have been too small. Also would have had to have tailor add some sort of hidden snap or hook to keep coat closed in the winter wind. Probably could have made it work, but it was just too many alterations to be worth it. If Peruvian Connection did some of these things, it could be a great coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally - my forever coat This is the first time in my life I've put something on, looked in the mirror and gone 'Wow'. I still can't believe how well it fits me and moves with me - it could have been bespoke. I can't wait for the cold weather to start. My thanks to all involved in the design and manufacture - please don't ever discontinue this design, I'm saving up now for my next one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic fit after alterations Like many of the other reviews, I also drooled over this coat for years putting it off in not being able to justify the costs until I recently purchased the slate blue color on sale. This coat as per all the prior reviews does run big in size, which was a big help when I ordered a small when I usually fit into medium. At 5'4 130 lbs the small fits very well overall with the exception that the length and sleeves which are being altered to my size do run exceptionally long. Designed for a 5'6 model I can understand why. The quality is superior, but even on sale this item is very pricey to then have it be altered which you hope gets done professionally. You are granted a $50 alteration credit which helps but would be nice if it was offered in sizes to us smaller framed individuals. Overall if you want a classy look with flare this fashion statement will bring it on. So splurge and treat yourself but go a size smaller than you usually would and plan to have altered.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost great I’ve drooled over this coat for years and finally got it on sale and in a new, stunning color. So excited! But...sleeves are a little long and lining isn’t the top quality I expected. Still, when summer’s over I will be sporting this stunning, dramatic coat. Seems as if it will be plenty warm. And plenty pretty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Classic Coat - Timeless I have lusted after this coat for maybe ten years. It's a staple of the PC catalog, just varying in colors over the years. I finally broke down and bought it. Life is too short to skip this coat. I got it in aubergine, and it's subtle and rich..a "neutral" without being boring. I'm not as tall as the model, so it comes right down to my ankles. I may have it shortened...but maybe not. We'll see. I wish I'd bought it years ago. I live in NW FL, so it isn't exactly a place where I need a coat like this often, but when I do...I'm going to feel very special.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and elegant coat I bought this coat several years ago, and love wearing it. It is a bit 'dressy' for rural Ireland, but it is fun to wear, and gets many compliments. It is superbly tailored, so it hangs and drapes well. It's is very warm, and there is plenty of fabric to wrap around, to keep the wind out! Altogether a great coat!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Arms It is a pity that you cut the arm holes so high thereby leaving very little room for a jacket underneath. The point of a winter coat is to be warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decades Coat is Top Notch! My husband gave me the Decades coat in black for Christmas! It is the most perfect coat ever!!! I absolutely LOVE it! My only suggestion to Peruvian Connection is that they offer this coat in Petite length. I had to have the length shortened and the sleeve length shortened, as I am only 5'3", but now it is perfect. I do however appreciate that Peruvian Connection offers up to $50 reimbursement for alternations if needed. Thank you!! I highly recommend this coat - it is comfortable and very flattering!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Once in a lifetime This is a beautifully crafted coat from yesteryear. The fabric is perfect and the fit reminds me of a favorite hand sewn coat I found in an Albuquerque vintage clothing shop in 1983. I expect I will love this coat for at least 30 years...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I want to be buried in this coat I bought this coat five or six years ago and can't imagine ever wanting another dress coat. I feel like a million dollars in it, and it will never go out of style. The one caveat that buyers should be aware of is that because you have to use your hands to keep the coat closed in super cold weather (no buttons), it's not exactly a "working" or walk-the-dog coat, at least not for those of us who live in cold climates. I pair it with a scarf to keep my neck warm. I'm 5' 8", often wear heels with it, and the length is perfect for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A lovely feel to the material spoilt by the lining I love the look and feel of the coat but very disappointed that such an expensive item falls down on the poor lining .It is always crushed and the creases never fall out when hung.Such a pity not to give the coat a really fabulous finish ,for the sake of a few pounds expenditure on thicker quality lining.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely luscious! This coat is so soft and warm! I can't wait for winter now. Since I am petite I had to have some alterations done and my seamstress said her other customers were commenting on how beautiful it is. I'm sure I'll wear it for many years. I did have some discreet ties sewn in so that it can be closed in particularly blustery weather but I do love this style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really IS a Decades Coat!! This year, I am finally retiring a sage green version of this same coat that I bought in the Santa Fe store in 1999. It's lived up to its name, delivering 16 hard years of service before finally getting threadbare enough to replace. (Also: I lost 50 pounds, and needed to downsize. Loose-and-flowing has become huge-and-overwhelming. If you're worried about this, order down a size.) The fabric is dense, warm, and astonishingly featherweight. I've wadded it into airline overhead bins, thrown it on over sweats on midnight runs to emergency rooms, and snuggled my two kids under its cozy folds. It's been my go-to coat for so long that I can't imagine my winter wardrobe without it. So I'm very much looking forward to getting another 15 years out of the new (smaller!) bordeaux one I'm ordering right now. With any luck, I'll cuddle my grandkids into it someday. It probably will last that long.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very good purchase Actually, I'm a petite, but as this coat was on sale, I decided that with the purchase I could afford alterations. Length and sleeves were adjusted; the neck-to-hem pleat at the back was sewn down to create a simple kick pleat. I felt there was too much fabric at the back-- especially for my small frame--which came across as a tent. Now with the alterations, my decades coat is perfect. That beautiful collar remains untouched.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Timeless coat I don't know why everybody so excited about this coat. It is looks and feels like a tent . Really too bulky too much fabric and hangs on shoulder like a camping tent. Pictures made for skinniest person possible to add some weight with this coat could be good idea but for the rest of us formless figure making coat. I don't like it at all.
