I got it in size 4, my regular size, and I think it's a good fit. It is like the softest, most cuddliest (is that a word?) thing ever! It's made of sherpa fleece. I love it! I love the asymmetrical zipper style too. The collar is huge, and probably not very practical for cold weather since it leaves your neck uncovered. But it's perfect for the fake winters we have here! Black swan is a beautiful dark purple color. It looks more like black with purple undertone. It's gorgeous... I took a bunch of pics!
You can also button the neck up so it becomes more of a cowlneck look... this way the collar doesn't look quite so big and unmanageable:
You can also leave both sides of the collar unbuttoned and then you have the biggest draping collar ever! Like this:
The bottom has a double hem:
Because of the asymmetrical style, the pockets are different sizes on both sides. One is a lot bigger than the other, it goes all the way across the belly, like a hidden kangaroo pocket. The other one is more like a credit card/cash slot.
I think I love everything about this jacket! Had I tried it on in the store when it was out last year, I would have totally paid up and walked away with it! I think this is my best purchase in a while! Super stoked!
