Rated 5 out of 5 by ayayaya Great trench, not sure about 'wool-cashmere'
Last year, I was unable to buy this because they were all gone when I noticed. So as soon as I saw this trench this year, I had to buy it. The coat is stylish, very nice cut, it's perfect. I am so happy about my purchase and I am thinking of buying another color.
My only complaint is that Cashmere is only 8% and I personally think 8% cashmere is almost same as nothing. I don't think you should even name the trench as 'wool-cashmere' if only 8%. I do not feel any cashmere or softness in the fabric. The fabric is rather harder and a tiny tiny bit itchy but I do not wear over bare skin so this is not a big issue. Imo, it is ok just Wool and some other material, it doesn't have to be Cashmere everything.
Having said that, again, I am truly happy about this coat. Please don't take my review as a negative one because it is not. The coat is so good looking, well made, awesome awesome coat that makes you look cool very stylish. I will wear this for years to come.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lizzz Classic style, wish quality were higher
I was on the fence about keeping this coat, which I have admired for a couple of years, but as it's now sold out in navy and is a classic style, I'm going to keep it. As another reviewer mentioned, the cashmere is negligible so they might as well eliminate it completely. The coat does not feel that thick or warm to me, which is disappointing. I got my usual 2 which fit fine everywhere and was almost a little larger than I wanted in the body (but I like a very close fit). The belt is super long and does not work well if you buckle it, but if you tie it in a knot at the waist it works. I can recommend it as a medium weight classic coat but only if you get it on sale.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MommyStyle Beautiful coat...from far away.
I purchased this coat in September and started using it late October, early November. While the styling and fit of the coat are perfectly beautiful, the material is horrible. It collects every bit of lint, hair, etc. requiring me to lint roll it mulitple times a day. Additionally, the material pills on the underside of the arms. I have dry cleaned it numerous times and it still looks awful. And buttons are starting to fall off.
It looks like my winter coats from 4 years ago that I bought this coat to replace. Not at all what I expect for a coat from JCrew at this price point.

This coat is just perfect. The fabric is amazing, it feels so nice and its a classic style. Overtime I wear it people complement it and ask to touch it because it looks so soft.
I have it in navy. hope cabernet comes back in my color to get it...
Size might run a little small. I am xs or 0 for tops at J Crew, I have this in size 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jules Very classic, classy and faminine winter trench!
I purchased this wool trench coat in baige 3 years ago (size 00, I'm 6.4", 105lbs, long arms-that's why I didn't buy in petite size), I loved it so much and I've gotten a lot of compliments on it! The coat has been my favorite winter coat for the past years and I've been wanting to have one in black so badly. Now I just found that this beautiful Classic trench coat came back in Jcrew and I didn't hesitate for one minute to order one in black!! I'm so excited to wear this coat this coming winter.!
