I needed a warm vegan winter coat as I'm spending the winter in New York City and I'm a wimp from California! I love this coat. It's so warm and I love the color. The hood is exceptionally warm and I love the black faux fur. I'm 5'5'' and weigh about 145 pounds. I ordered a medium. It fits, but just. It's slightly snug, but totally okay. If I were any bigger, I'd definitely go with a large. This coat is very well-made and I love it that it doesn't harm animals.
