Centigrade Washable Leather Coat w/ Thermolite Zip Out Lining
Better than you think
I bought this jacket in black - had to go on waitlist and am glad I did. When I first opened the box, I wasn't sure that I wanted to keep it because the leather was not soft - but they never said it was lamb! It's perfect for me and I'm glad I kept it. I actually tried it on in the mail store and asked the employee what he thought of it and he said he liked it. I wear it very often and even use it in NY cold weather with a sweater underneath. It has become my favorite jacket. Had it now 2 yrs and it still looks good, the leather has softened and I love it. I have not washed it, but it doesn't need washing. Have worn it in the rain, snow - no fading or other issues. A better jacket than people have posted. I may go back for the tan!
Bought this jacket because it's washable and the price was reasonable. The ratings were not good, but I decided to take a chance. I love this jacket! It fit me nicely, it's perfect for my needs. The leather is not the best quality, but it's my go-to jacket that will serve me well in the North West. I have not washed it yet. Love the idea of the zip out lining. This jacket is warm, not a light weight.
I was really, really, hesitant to order this jacket after all the negative reviews it received on here, but now that I have received it I see that it is exactly as it is described on the website. I am a true medium in a jacket and this fits perfectly. The leather IS NOT like lamb leather, of course it is rougher, but I can see that it will hold up and will also soften up with alot of use which it will get. It is a true "go to" for the New England climate in which I live, and the thermolite lining is just a great little bonus. For $93.00, and free shipping ,what are you waiting for?
I really hesitated to order this coat after reading the reviews, but I was in need of a new leather coat to replace the 10 year old leather with zip-out thermal lining that I currently have. The price was right, the pictures & on-air video demonstration showed a coat that was exactly what I was looking for, so, I ordered it. I just opened the box & put it on - it is fantastic!!! It fits me perfectly with room to spare, I have long arms so the longer sleeves are perfect for me. The scent is a bit different as others mentioned - not like my leather handbags at all, but this is a "washable" leather so I figure it is some kind of treated leather? But it does look like real leather - the tags in the collar say genuine leather, and the care instructions say genuine leather. I went with a small and it is fine. I am a slender 5'6" that normally wears a size 6. I am very happy that I went against the tide and took a chance on the coat. It's a keeper - the tags are coming off & the empty box is going out to the trash!
Good coat for all weather
I love this coat. I ordered it to replace another Centigrade (shorter) coat that I bought several years ago and wore out. In addition, I've lost some weight and needed a smaller size.
This coat fits fairly close to the body. I normally wear a medium and that is what I ordered. It isn't tight, but it isn't generously sized either. If you are borderline, go up a size. I haven't worn it without the lining, but I did remove it to try it on, and that makes a considerable difference in the fit. It is warm enough for winter in the midwest with the lining in place, but on warmer days it isn't too hot either. That's what I love about leather. It fits the day.
The leather is soft and moves well with me. It doesn't bind when I'm getting in and out of the car, and it is quite comfortable. I haven't washed it yet, so I can't judge that aspect of the leather.
I really wanted to keep this coat; the leather was soft and the quality was good. However the coat narrowed from 45 inches at the bust to 40 inches at the hip (size medium), so while it fit throught the bust and shoulders, it was too narrow at the hips.
Although the leather feels thinner than another Centigrade leather coat I purchased this seems quite nice. Great price, great coat for 30 degree weather.
Poor construction, bad odor, cheap looking
I am disappointed in this purchase. This jacket has a very upleasant odor and has a tight
boxy fit across the shoulders. I'm petite and the shoulders are tight! Also, the quality of the leather is stiff and cheap looking.
Favorite Brown Jacket
I love this jacket. While it was not as dark as I thought, the weight, quality of the leather, the thickness of the zip lining met my every expectation. It will definitely work for me in this 30 degree weather.
Just received this coat in the mail. It looked very nice to me but I had an issue.
I ordered a medium but couldn't close it around the belly & hips area and i had on pj's when I tried it on. What this says to me is that if I had clothes and a sweater on, it would be extremely uncomfortable. I think this coat could use a little more room in the body area. I also found the sleeves to be long. The price was right but I'm sending it back I am 5 ft weigh 130 and it doesn't come in a petite size.
Looks like caramel candy and soft as butter
This is a very nice coat. In hindsight, I would have ordered the purple, but this is a great neutral colour, especially since I have red/blonde hair. It will look perfect with all styles of boots; UGGs will do especially well. I might even add a fur collar to the coat. For now, I have a Dennis Basso faux fur headband to keep my ears warm and wear with it (and winter is coming quickly!) The coat is a little longer on me than I expected, but that means it can be worn 4 seasons, not three. The only drawback is that it is sized exactly, so you don't want to 'fudge' your measurements when you order.
I just received this jacket yesterday, I did not opened the box until today, when I did and uncovered the jacket there was a terrible odor it smelled like it was in a fire. Well, I sent the jacket right back. I did read the reviews I guess I should have listen. I am usually very satified with all the products of QVC, but not this one. Sorry
