J Crew Reviews - Cotton Twill Swing Trench (sp2014)


Welcome to my first review post. Let's see how this goes!

Cotton Twill Swing Trench, size 00, modern red (which is the reddish orange JC trots out under that name, as usual).

Pros: stiff cotton, no detail spared, water repellant (it will bead on the fabric), hook closure at collar, two back vents, nice cuffs on sleeves, hidden buttons, cute shape

Cons: HUMONGOUS; added 20 lbs to me instantly, sleeve and coat length ok even for petites; no detail spared (*two* storm flaps?!); stiff fabric; poly lining.

Sizing: size down two sizes if you want to try it out, without fear. The designers could not have imagined us looking like balloon fish, fie on them if they did!

Verdict: Return.  Do not buy on sale.

Lifting storm flap on chest. One on each side.
