Should I or Should I Not?


I'm in love with this. Isn't it lovely? The Gumshoe Sweatercoat is calling my sweet name. Should I buy it or should I not? It's going to look just darling on me... I just know it!


What should I do?

I fell in love with this too when I saw it online and in the catalog. When I tried it on in the store, though, I was very disappointed. I'm 5'4" and this was WAY too long on me (pretty much to the knees) and the sleeves were also very long. I think you probably need to be ~5'7" or above for this to work (and even then, the sleeve length might be a problem). Also not impressed that the inside wasn't lined, so the seems were very visible. I think this would be fairly noticeable when the jacket isn't buttoned. Beautiful color but otherwise disappointing. I guess I'd imagined it as being more substantial (in material) and it was really just very thin felted wool.

It is a beautiful coat. You need to try it on, if at all possible, and then decide. You will know if it needs to come home with you!

I agree with Heidi. I am 5'6" and it fits perfectly. Love it! I bought black but I didn't see this gorgeous color.

I agree w/violet07. Not enamored in person. It was kinda saggy on the hanger. Sorry to be a buzzkill. I just saw it again today. You should google effortlessanthropologie.blogspot and anthroholic.blogspot w/the keyword for the sweater. I believe they both reviewed it w/irl pics.

I have this in the purple and LOVE it. I'm 5'8", so the length definitely isn't a problem for me, and I love that it's unlined - it's so incredibly soft and cozy, while also looking very polished. I just got the black, as well, last weekend, to go over the dress that I plan to wear for the holidays - it was the perfect excuse to pick up the sweater in a second color!

I have this coat in ivory and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! I wear it as a fall jacket over some of my items, but will probably wear it as my outfit once winter hits.
I am 5'5, but wear it w/my flat boots and my heels to work! Defintely try it on!

I just bought this because they didn't have my size in ivory and I love the way it hangs on me! I'm 5'3" so you should definitely try it on if you get the chance to!

I bought it in the black and the orange. I have gotten so many compliments. I originally bought them in a S and they were too big. I exchanged them for XS and they are perfect. Love them!!
