Rated 4 out of 5 by abc1234 Classic, lovely, overpriced occasion jacket
After seeing this in pics from Fashion Week, I really wanted to see it in person, so I went ahead and ordered. So it is really beautiful in person, but there are caveats. It is not really a coat, it is a jacket, and it's 100% nylon, with a sort of swishy taffeta feel (and sound) to it. It is definitely not going to keep you warm. It is not lined. That said, if it's crazy warm outside like it was last year up through the holidays, this would actually be perfect for popping into events, church, dinner out, etc. with a dress or a sweater. You're not wearing this item out in the polar vortex. Ok, so with that established, and understanding it's crazily overpriced for nylon, it's still a lovely piece -- the classic plaid, a true red and navy, the nicely fitted (not tight or weirdly oversized) shape. I'd say it runs TTS. Would be stunning with the new houndstooth/jeweled heels. If they took a hundred off the starting price, it would likely sell out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Shannon disappointed and heartbroken
I was giddy to order this jacket. I thought my old classic Jcrew is back! I was so incredibly disappointed when I opened this. The look and plaid are on point, but the quality for the price point are not even remotely aligned. There is no lining. The material is weird, oh because it's nylon! Shame on me for being dazzled by the photo and not reading the description. I rarely splurge on full-priced items but I assumed this classic would be with me for years. No, no, no. Don't waste your money.

I also made the mistake of ordering this item without catching that it was made out of nylon! I saw the vibrant plaid trench coat and incorrectly assumed it would be true to J Crew's typical outstanding coat quality. Not true at all! And there is nothing in this piece that warrants a "Collection" title. It looks cheap, feels cheap and wasn't flattering on at all! This is a big miss!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lynne nothing more than a windbreaker
I always love everything I buy from J Crew, but this coat is very cute but its nothing more than a windbreaker.....very expensive one. Its not lined at all. Can buy a lined trench coat for the same money. again even though very cute just not worth the money.
I really looked forward to wearing this, very unhappy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MJLo I'm a fan!
I fully agree with the other reviews about this being overpriced for a 100% Nylon jacket. Totally agree that if it was $100- cheaper it would sell too. I honestly figured I'd be returning this one due to price versus the material used, especially after reading reviews. However, I'm a fan! The plaid is a true plaid, reminds me of the holidays. The length is just above my knees (5'6"135#), and I got my usual 4. I always have trouble with my broad shoulders and garments feeling too tight when I cross my arms, but if I sized up to the 6 this jacket would be too big overall. I'm keeping it. Maybe if you look at this expensive piece as a super unique and stylish ULTIMATE RAIN COAT it'll be worth it? The cut is true to classic J.Crew button ups, very nicely tailored. Bottom line, was planning on returning before it got here, but I will be keeping it!
