Rated 5 out of 5 by SpYoungMum Perfect in every way
I was quite hesitant to order a coat online as I couldn't check the fit or the feel of the fabric, but I decided to give it a try and was (extremely) pleasantly surprised when I received it.
The fabric looks and feels amazing: it's both soft and substantial; and the fit is extremely flattering. It is fitted enough but with enough room to move comfortably, as the wool seems to have a bit of give to it.
For reference, I am 5'6", about 125 pounds, 32 A, with broad shoulders, and a relatively long torso and arms, and I got a regular 0. The sleeves reach the start of my thumb (not just the wrist, as on the model in the picture).
I got the peony color and it looks pretty much as it does online.
I can't comment on how it compares to earlier styles because it's the first time I've bought it, but if I could, I would get it in a couple more colors. I'll have to wait a few months to see how the fabric withstands wear, but so far I definitely recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by kmrk thank you ! returns to its former glory
Thank you JCrew for returning this coat to its former design. The fit is perfect - it is not 'shrunken' nor is it oversized. The pockets are where they should be for a winter coat as you should be able to get your hands in them easily! The color (pink) and weight of the fabric - perfect.
Now it just needs to get cold so I can wear it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by ostrakon JCrew please show EVERYTHING in fabric
I was looking for a 100% wool peacoat and this peacoat by JCrew looked nice. I looked at other JCREW coats and they all contain poly or nylon. This one only says `wool`. So I happily placed an order.
I just got the order today. To my greatest disappointment, the label said clearly: 79% wool + 21% nylon! I didn't even try it on.
JCrew, please show EVERYTHING in the fabric and please do NOT inadvertently or intentionally withhold information. It is very misleading.
I have purchased quite a few JCREW pieces (mostly in store) and was a fan of JCREW a few years ago. Even though I don't buy much now, I still think of this brand because it represents good quality and good design. So please honestly describe the fabric as what it is in the label and we will pick what we like. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SparkyGirl1012 Love this peacoat!
The cut of this coat is so flattering and the pink is such a beautiful color! Love it!! I almost can't wait for winter so I can wear it. I'm a middle age woman so I was a little worried about wearing a pink coat but it's not "Barbie" pink. Very flattering for any age. It's much prettier in person than online. Order it, you won't regret it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Cincinga68 Classic look, awkward fit
This is a beautiful, classic peacoat. I got the navy and it was very pretty. However, the size was off, mostly due to the sleeves being too narrow (my pet peeve in winter coats). Half my closet is J.Crew and I'm usually a 4 or 6 across the board (5'6" 130 lbs). I ordered a 6 (same as my old J.Crew peacoat), and was surprised to discover that I'd have to size up if I want to wear a sweater underneath and still be able to bend my arms comfortably. Also, for me this coat was too boxy and short - I like longish sweaters, and they will be hanging below the hem.
