You can do chores in this coat, sure. Stack wood in your arms and carry it from the pile to the fire and trust that the quality wool blend will laugh off the abrasion and grit and be ready for more. But you could also not do chores in this coat. Wear it to the movies. Walk around the woods, the city, the small town farmers market searching for tomato starters. Apply its remarkable functionality as you see fit.
Beautiful, high quality, American made product. I love, love, love this coat. I had reservations about an unlined coat, because I am so cold natured, but I got over it rather quickly. It s so warm without the bulk. I had never heard of Stormy Kromer until I did a search for wool mittens... ended up buying the Chore Coat and Petal Pusher Cap, along with the mittens I was originally looking for. I'm hooked on the beauty and quality of these products... money well spent. Customer service is top notch and I received my items quickly... ordered on a Friday and received on Monday. I'll definitely make future purchases at Stormy Kromer.
Love this Merlot Chore Coat ♥︎ At first it seemed more light-weight than I'd hoped. But the weave on this wool coat is very tight and it is warm. I'm a size 14 and the xtra large is more generous than I need, but it is flattering and it is a good fit with a hoodie and an Ida Outfitter Vest layered beneath. I know I will enjoy this well made coat for years to come! Thanks Stormy Kromer.
I ordered this coat for my daughter and she loves it. The workmanship is top notch. Keep up the great work of made in the USA and in Michigan's UP
Received my first Stormy Kromer coat for Christmas. It fit perfect like it was custom made for me and just in time for snow. I am so happy with my Christmas jacket that I ordered another one tonight.
I was going to review this last year, and I forgot, but I have used it for many winter walks in Michigan. I am very pleased with it. I also have the vest and when you wear them both. You are toasty. They may call it a chore coat, but I have had many compliments on it, and have worn it everywhere. My family is from the U.P. and so we have a lot of SK stuff. Have always been pleased with every purchase, from bags, to hats, to mittens. Keep up the great work. Love that USA label. Linda W.
Customer service is very helpful with sizing and coat arrived a couple days after ordering. Beautiful craftsmanship !!! I would highly recommend. Stormy Kromer, Keep up the great work!!
Was a little leary purchasing this coat. My measurements were boarderline. But turned out it fits perfectly. It is slimming too. The coat is very well made. The sleeves are the perfect length. I ordered on a Thursday and to my surprise my order was delivered on Monday. I am very happy with my order. M;y new coat is keeping me nice and warm. Keep up the great work! -Karen
This is a great coat, the color (blue spruce) is lovely, and yesterday I noticed that it matches my Petal Pusher Cap in Wintergreen. I can't wait to wear them together.Looks aside, this coat will handle some serious work. I usually go for function over form, but this jacket has it all. Thanks Stormy for making a functional coat for all of the women who work outside. -Portland Patti
The trim cut and timelessness of this coat caught my eye from the start. The coat wraps you up in a beautifully sleek and great fit. But this coat goes beyond being fashionable. The material keeps you remarkably warm and just touching this coat, investigating the seams, and holding the fabric up into the light for closer inspection reinforced the sense of high quality and durability for me. Thank you Stormy Kromer for this gorgeous winter coat. :) Here's to hoping it keeps me warm through many winters. -GoGettingGrace -GoGettingGrace
