First, I'd like to say that I sat for about 10 minutes trying to figure out how to get the jacket to open in the front. Yes, sad and crazy I know. But, what you will notice is there are hooks you have to obviously unhook but with the jacket being black and the hooks black they sort of blend in and you cant figure out how to do it. Now, onto why I love the jacket. I've worn this dressed up and worn it dressed down. It matches everything and adds a nice little flare. It's really warm and soft as well.
