I really like this fleece jacket. It is so soft and cozy. It is very flattering in the cut so it doesn't make you look bigger as so many fuzzy fleece jackets seem to do. As far as length, I am 5'8" and I find it to be a nice length but my height is from long legs not a long torso. I normally wear a L in EB tshirts and wear this in an XL. I have the plumwine color and it is very pretty. I think it is darker than the color as shown online. I have just ordered a second one in navy at 50% off. This has become my favorite fleece for temps in the 30's to 40's. EB, I would like to know why Washington, DC is not listed as a choice for location for reviews? People do live there!
