I am a teacher and this is without a doubt the softest vest I have ever owned. Every time I've worn it I have had at least one student (or adult!) want to run his or her fingers through it!
Being solidly of the large size, I find that this vest fits without any slack, so my conclusion is that it runs slightly small, of course, depending on one's proportions. It is also unbelievably warm; so much so that occasionally I have to take it off. (I do tend to run hot, so those women who run cold or average will probably find it comfortable.)
The blonde mink is incredibly beautiful. I find it a wee bit too fancy for school, but it would be perfect for a nice dinner out or an occasion where one has to dress up slightly. I wish I had bought the timber wolf for school or casual dressing, but it seems like it is no longer available in my size. That in no way meant to detract from the beauty of this vest, and I'm still thrilled to own it.
Too Long for Me

Beautiful vest. But being 5'2" 130 bought M was very long. Below my hips. Picture did not reflect that length or person in photo was much taller. Returned

I bought this vest in blonde mink and it is stylish and well made. The only thing I am adding is a button and elastic loop at the neck to keep out the chill. I might get another one in a different fur.
Soft and Stylish

Wow, what a cute vest and incredibly soft! Provides a nice looking layer of warmth without being bulky at all. Is very well made and I'm very happy with this purchase.
