Rated 5 out of 5 by Rodrig54 Classic wool coat with great color choices
I was looking for a wool coat that I can wear over blazers and heavier sweaters. I generally wear a size 4 in J. Crew blazers and purchased the Regent Topcoat in size 4. It fits perfectly and accommodates blazers and other winter-weight clothes underneath. The style is really nice in that there is good coverage against the elements in front. I purchased the pink color and love that it adds a twist to such a classic piece. Great purchase and highly recommended!

Rated 2 out of 5 by JCommit Classically Worth the Hassle
This is a classic coat that would be a wonderful addition to anyone's collection. The cut, color and material are all classic, making this coat a timeless item. The one downfall is the cut and sizing. Depending on how I want my clothes to fit I have everything from size 2-4-6. I thought I would order a size four since that is my go to size, well...I was complete wrong. I could not even close the coat over my torso. I own the Double-cloth lady day coat in a size 4 from 3 years ago and I still get compliments on it to this day. I'm not sure why this coat is cut so differently and I can understand variations in cut and style but this seemed a bit ridiculous. I want to add this coat to my collection but unfortunately had to send it back and am waiting for the larger size to arrive.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mels Wish it wasn't a standing collar.
I was looking forward to this season's topcoat in the hopes that I could finally replace my old and very well-worn J Crew topcoat from a few years ago which was a standard J Crew coat until it wasn't.
Last year's version was a total fail (weird shape and fit). This is one came pretty close except for the standing collar. I thought I might be okay with it, but I still prefer the old folded collar. Any chance you'll offer this with a regular collar? I really need to replace my topcoat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KRA2 Beautiful Color
I was so excited to get this coat! The color is so lovely. I agree with another reviewer that the collar was problematic. I am short so it kind of rubbed the back of my neck. In addition, the sleeves were way too long. They can't be altered as they have functioning buttons. I could have lived with those issues, but the lining was lumpy in the front across my bust. I kept trying to flatten it down to get it to lay straight but it made no difference. Maybe it was just this jacket but it really didn't work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by featherinwind Runs a littel large for me actually
I generally order Size 4/S for tops and bottoms from Jcrew and it fits perfectly. I am 5'7" and weigh 125lbs. Saw other reviews about this coat saying it is true to size, but I find it actually runs a bit large for me, maybe it is because I wear it just on top of a cashmere sweather rather than layering up with a blazer etc. Need adjust the buttons to make it look tighter. But overall this is a great coat, superb color. Huge Jcrew fan for over 10 years.
