The style is slenderizing and would make the wearer appear taller. The length, nipped in waist, but most of all the black piping draws the eye vertically. I would think it would be even more slenderizing with the colors reversed. A black jacket with white piping.

I don't want to stereotype, but it looks like something my roommate from my freshman year of college would wear. She was from Singapore.

That doesn't really look like anything you'd see too many Western-born women wearing here in the States, unless you keep very fashion-forward company.

Never seen it before, I would not think this is popular. I wouldn't buy it, I think it's kind of ugly or dated '80s looking.

Then again I don't need anything "slenderizing" or "slimming" because I am already skinny so perhaps that's why it doesn't appeal to me.

Yes, that is the reason why so many people love this coat. It is me that do not notice the beauty of it.

Well, different people have different appetites. There are many people love it because of its effect of "slenderizing" and "slimming".

The nipped-in waist also would show off the female figure, if the wearer had an hourglass figure. It's good for business attire.

It is not my style. I don't see people here wearing it, but at my job and in my circle, that style doesn't work.
I think people might like it because it seems to be versatile for business attire. It might go well with slacks or a skirt; it would go well for the office - a stricter dresscode, or even a more business casual dress code. As others said, slimming. I am small, but I always like something longer like that, a longer sweater or blazer or something a touch longer than my waist over my shirt, etc. I think people tend to like neutral colors. So, maybe that would be some reasons. Just my guess. Personally it has no place in my wardrobe.
