I'm amazed at how great this coat is, the pictures on this site really don't do it any justice, other than to show the fit/length of it.
The coat itself is jet black with a beautiful brocade pattern on the fabric. It feels as though it can stand up to a good amount of wear before any kind of problems will occur. The two pockets are nice and deep, and things like a wallet or a phone won't take away from the look by creating odd bulges or shapes.
I wore it at a Renaissance Festival the entire day, and it was comfy as can be. I doubt it would hold up well in colder weather, but in mid-80-degree weather with a light breeze? I wasn't too warm at all.
Sizing runs a bit small. I'm 6'2" tall, 165lb. Tall long-limbed. I ordered the Medium, and it fits me perfectly.
All in all, I really only have two minor grievances, hence the 4/5 stars. One, no inner pocket. Not a deal breaker, since my pirate getup usually has a pouch or two on the belt, but it would've been a nice addition. And two, the buttons are covered in thin vinyl. Seems really easy to tear or snag the coating. You are given one spare each for the large and small buttons, though.
