Rated 5 out of 5 by jbootgirl FABULOUS
I tried this on in the store, and I have to disagree with the other reviewer! It is fabulously stylish and flattering. Would look great with pants or skirts. The nut brown is a great color--different from your typical pale stone/khaki colors commonly seen on trenches which are sometimes unflattering on caucasian skin. Very soft material-you'll want to keep it on inside. A nice light to mid-weight for early fall or layering. Pretty lining and perfect details. I would get a 4 in a JCrew blazer, but 6 in this trench was perfect for me--not too big looking, but enough room for a sweater underneath.

I own last Spring's sand colored washed trench and love it. This one raises the bar. It is less structured than the Icon Trench but in a nice polished cloth with a great striped lining which is business or casual ready. I found it to run more generously than most J Crew blazers so I sized down. I'm 5' 5" and the sleeves are a good length but look really nice turned back to expose the lining. You will wear this for years....do it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by YZloveshopping Great trench and comfortable materials!
I tried regular 6 in store last weekend and found the nut brown color looked not so bad as I expected on my Asian skin tone, actually it was so comfy and great. However, I'm 5'3'' and this trench is way too long for me with long sleeves as well. Sadly, the petite size is all out of stock online so I couldn't get one for myself. Hope this one can be in stock sometime soon (better with other colors) and I will definitely buy one! Recommend it to people who're looking for trenches!

Rated 5 out of 5 by VirginiaShopper Thrilled with this trench
I've been on the hunt for an affordable, stylish trench for more than a year and this is IT. Pulled it out of the box, put it on, and am ready to go! I'm 5'9" and ordered my normal JCrew coat size 10, up from my normal 8. It's perfect if you are on the tall side, with nice long sleeves, good body length and just enough room to layer a medium weight sweater. Fabulous details -- deep pockets and lots of buttons and flaps. Fabric is a bit softer and more casual than the Iconic Trench. I think this version will move very easily between weekend and work. And bonus, it's washable. I chose the green color and it's a nice rich shade, similar to the online representation. I purchase JCrew regularly, but I think they hit it out of the park with this one.

Not quite right -- I wish there were a bit more of a flare to the skirt of the trench. It's cut absolutely straight, which is not the most flattering. At least for the smaller sizes, the sleeves are simply too short. I find this a lot with J Crew jackets and blazers -- the regular 000s and 00s are almost always several inches too short in the sleeves (and I'm not tall - 5'7").
