Denim & Co. Heathered Fleece Jacket Sherpa Lined w/ Hood & Pockets
Pretty jacket,but . . .
IT SMELLS!!! This jacket is really pretty and when I received it, i loved it. The problem with it is that it STINKS so bad, I don't know if I will ever be able to wear it. I have washed this jacket twice, hung it outside to dry, tried the dryer, and it still smells of some chemical that makes me ill. QVC - what is in this jacket to make it smell like a chemical??? Otherwise, i really like the style and that it comes with a hood. Any suggestions as how to get the odor out before fall???
I love this coat. Perfect length for fairly cold weather and worked great in the rain. There is also enough room to wear layers under the coat.My only issue is the cream color of the lining and cuffs. It attracted every dark color, winding in threads and lint, etc. until even fresh washed looked dirty. I even tried a fuzz buster to remove a bit but didn't really help. I tried another semilar coat by Denim & Co. with a colored lining but it is too thin and the button holes to big and it always comss unbuttoned.
Please make this coat with colored lining and trim! I would buy a couple colors.
The Nose Knows
I want to love this coat. The structure, fabric, warmth, and overall feel of it are wonderful. However, as a number of others have noted, it exudes a strong chemical/oil odor that cannot be ignored. I have done two launderings and sadly it is still present though not as strong as originally. I never return items, so unless more washings help, it will be used only for very low-key events and outdoor chores.
ove the color, and coat, but not good in the wind and at 30degrees its fairly warm,
So many compliments on this coat!
Whenever I wear this, people tell me it's the cutest coat - I have it in gray. Very comfy, warm and yet stylish. Please keep this item on QVC forever so I can order another one in the future! I have washed my coat a few times in the washing machine and air dried; I found that the light colored sherpa lining gets dirty at the cuffs where I turn them up.
LOVE this coat!
Had this coat shipped to my brother's house in NJ to wear at Thanksgiving. He opened it for me and had to call me to tell me what a great coat it was! Went into the city for Thanksgiving where the high temp that day was 32-- cold for a Southern Belle. This coat kept me very warm, but was very comfy. I did size up, because I knew that I'd be wearing multiple shirts and sweaters underneath. The size up does fit, but I think it is not necessary. I think my regular size would still fit nicely over my sweaters and such. It is definitely made with layering in mind. It is machine wash, and I should have washed it more than once this season, because the sherpa does get a little dirty around the wrists. Hazard of use though. I am fine with one washing and would def buy this in another color-- maybe next year.
Love this jacket! It's comfortable, super warm yet without the bulk. It also washes beautifully.
just in time!
I got this the day our winter hit in November and its so nice and warn!
I love the buttons instead of a zipper so I can unbutton it when I an driving so it is perfect!
so many complements and I am so glad I go it!
I am very pleased with the quality of this coat. There were no odor issues as mentioned by other reviewers. It is a nice quality, deep pockets, a generous hood, and I've had lots of compliments on it. I ordered my usual size, and it is generously cut, plenty of room for a bulky sweater or sweatshirt underneath. I feel like it is good value for the money.
LOVE the coat, HATE the buttons!!!
This coat is very warm and comfortable. It is a nice length. Just toss it washer and dryer and it comes out beautifully. The only bad thing I have to say about the coat is the buttons. They come undone quite easily. I wear this as my winter coat and it keeps you nice and warm, at least until the coat comes unbuttoned. I had to sew the button holes to solve this problem as I see other people have had to do.
Nice coat, I returned it.
This was a nice coat. Great length, cuffs I could turn back and not look ridiculous, buttons down the front, not a zipper. Nice toasty chestnut color - a win, win, right? Wrong!
The neckline vs. hood were uncomfortable. I wore it, out in the cold when I tried it on, and discovered the front closure and hood join in a single line. Normally, I'd expect the hood to be set back a bit.Plus, in the cold wind the hood caught the wind and inflated like a balloon. There was no hood tie to close it around your head. I didn't like that and there was no vent in the back which is the sign of a well made coat. I was very disappointed, so I sent it back.
Like giving yourself a hug
Coat is warm and cozy. I was skeptical about washing it, but it came out of the laundry looking like it was brand new. I agree with other reviewers that the buttons come undone easily, I think I'll try sewing the buttonholes to make them smaller like one reviewer suggested. That is the only reason I did not give it 5 stars.
