Joan Rivers Metallic Belted Trench Coat
Beautifully constructed; sized small. I'm on a loosing streak (:) so will work for me. Beautiful in the gunmetal color; love it!
Love Love Love
I will not buy any other trench coats! Joan makes the best !!!! Yes size up.
Pretty but where's your original classic?
Joan's trench coats are very figure flattering with a style and design thats classic thru and thru. I enjoy this new addition of metallic and shimmer fabrics but miss my classic cotton stone colored trench she used to make. All the new coats have shiny materials. Please get a message to Joan that we need her classic trench in its classic fabrics. My original trench by Joan reminded me of a Burberry the new "classic" is fine as an extra raincoat and this metallic is also pretty for a change or pop of color. Please bring back your cotton blend no sheen classic with tortoise buttons. Love love love that coat. Thanks Joan !
I Am Soooo Done With Stores
I love this coat...I will never shop at a store again...Every great quality. .well made..tired of buying clothes at the store not fitting..I love this
Beautiful but made small
This is a beautiful raincoat, nice sheen to the NAVY one. I'm sending for an exchange, as it it sewn smaller; cannot fit even a sweater or lite blazer under it. It was tite just with a blouse on. It is NOT true to size, so if you buy it, you need to go up one sz. I usually wear all JR fashions in a small, but this one's going back for an exchange. Beautiful lining in it too.
I bought this coat last year but had not had occasion to wear it.
Thie year I went to wear it and discovered it was a wee bit tight. (I had put on a few pounds).
I immediately came back to Q to see if med was available and voila, it was thank goodness! I ordered this in a med and can't wait for UPS. Love the coat.
I wanted to love it...but it didn't work for me.
The color is beautiful but the fabric was very stiff. Regretfully, I had to return it.
P.S. This does not change the fact that I love Joan.
I am so glad I did not miss out on this coat. I sized up based upon customer reviews. I purchased the gunmetal in XL. The fit is perfect. I own Joan's animal print trench coat A91577 in XL and her metallic coat is definitely cut smaller. Animal trench is a little big on me, metallic coat is just perfect. All I can say is this metallic coat is one gorgeous coat. If you are lucky enough to get this coat in your size, I would go for it. It is a timeless classic with a twist. Thank you Joan for your beautiful sense of style and for allowing those of us with a not so big budget to still dress classy.
really like it!
I love this coat, I ordered gun- metal grey. but it seems a beautiful shade of green, when I asked a friend, they said it looked black w/ gold highlights, as I looked again I could see what they were talking about. regardless, I still love the coat, and ling is beautiful
I ordered the gunmetal and this metallic color is beautiful. I did size-up to XL based on other reviews. The fit is perfect. The belt is super long and can almost wrap around my waist twice and I don't have a small waist. I am more than pleased with this purchase.
I ordered this coat in the blue & all I can say is "WOW!!" It is stunning! I would say it is more iridescent than metallic. An absolutely gorgeous deep shimmery blue. After checking the measurements shown & reading previous reviews, I did size up one size. I do agree that this does run a bit smaller than Joan's other trenches. Although a small would have fit perfectly over a shirt or light top, it would have been more snug than I'd like over a suit jacket or heavier top/sweater. I also do a lot of driving & prefer a slightly looser fit for ease of movement while doing so. If it helps, I am 5'3" 120lb & a perfect size 8 & found the medium was the perfect fit for me.
The "Classic Trench Coat" may be a better choice
I ordered Joan's "Classic Trench Coat" in stone and loved it--beautiful satin material and lots of compliments. I had expected the same but now see, there are different versions of this style. (The stone looks great with her garden scarf.) This material is not to my liking and it is also a very dark grey, I was looking for something a little lighter in color. The styling is great but it may fit a little snug for some so would order a size up. I guess this is more my mistake in not realizing the different fabrics. I would recommend the "Classic", you will not be disappointed.
