I bought the Guzzo to be a fashionable but comfortable and practical winter coat, and it has met my expectations pretty well. Sizing is always tricky when you buy clothes online, especially when you have little experience with the brand. Fortunately, I lucked out on this occasion. I am short (5') and have a medium build (116 lbs), and I chose a size small. The coat fits well in the shoulders but isn't tight to the rest of the body, which makes this coat forgiving of a range of body types. The materials are of high quality and are very soft and comfortable. The dark brown espresso color is multi-purpose and won't stain easily. The coat is also machine washable, which is a huge plus for a spill-prone person like me. I have just two beefs. First, the toggles and 'invisible' hooks for closing the coat are not very easy to manage, especially when your fingers are cold. Second, this coat is slightly bulky, which may not flatter smaller people. The materials and warmth make me happy with my purchase, but I just hope the coat doesn't make me look like a bear.
