Joan Rivers The New Classic Trench Coat
I really was pleasantly surprised when I received my Trench Coat. The fabric was plush and trendy, the lining was much more than I expected and both felt good to the touch. It was stylish and most of all it was a perfect fit all over. The shoulders, sleeve length and length of the jacket were perfect. Being long-waisted the belt fell at the right place and not across my stomach. I would like to own this coat in several colors.
Truly fabulous, BUT ...
BUT is for the BUTTONS that fall off without warning! I always wear it unbuttoned like Joan does. The 3rd time I wore it, the lowest button on the right side -- one that's decorative and cannot be buttoned -- disappeared leaving only long threads. Luckily, there's one spare button so I replaced it. Then I realized that ALL the buttons are poorly attached and had to resew all of them (over the existing thread). There are 13 buttons! And the fabric is tightly woven, so it was hard to get the needle through and even harder without going through the lining. Time-consuming and not easy. Hard to find the matching thread -- forget ever finding a replacement button.
The SIZING is, um, not entirely consistent. I'd originally ordered the pewter in Large (too big) and the stone in Medium (fit fine). I exchanged them for the fuchsia in Medium ... and it's a bit tight in the armholes & across the chest; but wearable, especially open.
That said, I ADORE! It's elegant! It can be worn anywhere & everywhere! People admire it! When I saw photos of myself wearing it, I realized that it was a very flattering and that the fuchsia looks great on me (pale with very light blonde hair).
GO FOR IT!
Wish I could give this coat 10 stars
I purchased this coat in the light pink & finally got to wear it around town last week. I had women asking me about it & telling me how pretty it is. Of course I gave Joan & QVC the credit. I ordered a large but felt it was a little big, so, I ordered a medium & the fit is perfect (I can button it over my 40" chest just fine). I just ordered it in Pewter. I absolutely love the sheen on the fabric!! I hope we have a long, cool spring here so I can wear these coats more often!! Thank you Joan Rivers for such a beautiful, classy trench!! Thank you QVC for carrying Ms. Rivers clothing & jewelry! xo
The coat is stunning, travels well and gets noticed! It is a keeper and i love it. I have two.
I have this coat in three colors and cannot believe how many compliments I get on them. People stop me in stores just to comment on these coats! I wear a size 6 and the small fits perfectly.
Love this coat!
Joan has done it again. This coat is beautiful - I have the beige which has a soft sheen. It fits perfectly and looks so elegant. Have gotten many compliments already. Love, love this coat
Can't Wait to Wear It!
This coat fits true to size and seems to be very nice quality. I can't wait for the weather to warm up so I can wear it. I got the light pink and am very happy with it.
Can't understand the 4 star reviews. This $100 coat came crushed in a plastic bag.
And is certainly not worth $100. The satin material is heavy and stiff and it was so
wrinkled because of the packaging. Joan needs to take note and so does QVC.
Pack in a box! Needless to say, the coat is going back. I am sure that I can go
to a department store and find a quality coat for the same price.
Polished in pink
Wow, I absolutely love this coat. I bought the light pink and the color is so beautiful! I get so many compliments and just feel amazing wearing it. I want the blue, black and hot pink one now...love it!
This Coat is Beautiful
I love this coat. Every time I wear this coat I get so many compliments. It just works in, makes you look polished. Thank You Joan.
HIGH END CLASSIC TRENCH COAT!!
It is a lovely high end classic trench coat in a wonderful satiny, saturated, black fabric and lined in a slinky animal print. It has every detail you come to expect from any high end designer! It is wonderfully made, and I can see how come it has become a Customer Pick! Thank you Joan!!!
Fit was good fabric was terrible
I thought the coat fit well but I didn't like the fabric. It looked like something between a taffeta and satin, a very cheap shine to the fabric. I bought it in black and liked the fit, it was the shine that made me send back. Too bad, I would buy it in a more matte fabric.
