I was concerned after reading several reviews that the coat
ran small. I am normally a medium with North Face apparel. I
took a chance and ordered the medium anyway and I'm glad I
did. I wear a lot of thick blazers for work and the medium
fits over those just fine, as well as over chunky sweaters.
I am 5'9 and about 155 lbs with pretty wide hips and am very
pleased with the fit. I didn't want something too bulky
looking; I wanted to be able to wear it to and from the
office without looking like Randy from 'A Christmas Story'.
This jacket has a very nicely defined waist, is the perfect
length and has great pockets. The length hits me just right,
at the middle of my thigh, which I love. The only thing I
will say is that my chest is on the smaller side so I can
see how if you are larger on top, a medium may be too snug.
My concern was with the bottom of the coat fitting properly,
which it does! As for warmth, it gets an A+. Super warm but
not heavy by any means. I have another North Face coat that
is also goose down and it feels like it weighs 10 lbs. This
coat is lightweight but definitely warm enough to handle the
unpredictable New England weather.

I have a Metropolis parka (size M) that is a few years old.
Loved the look and the color (Urban Navy) of the Miss Metro
so decided to give it a try, also in size M. I think the
Miss Metro offers a more flattering fit but that's because
the sleeves/shoulder area are designed differently and have
less give. And it feels a little slimmer in the body
overall. I like it and will be keeping it but probably won't
be wearing a lot of thicker layers underneath it. I'll keep
the Metropolis parka for when I need to do that.

I got this coat in the purple and was initially worried that
the color would appear maroonish or even brown, but I am
very happy to report it is a beautiful, rich, eggplant color
just as I had hoped! Makes it a very special coat in a see
of black coats everyone wears. I also love the style, it is
very flattering! It narrows in at the waist nicely and
accentuates your figure, even in larger sizes. The coat is
also very functional- super warm but also very light!
