Joan Rivers The New Classic Trench Coat
This trench coat is classic!
I ordered one in stone and one in black. I tried to cancel the black because I thought I was spending too much money. I thought I would be returning one of them but that is not happening. Do you know the definition of classic? That is this trench coat. The cut of the coat is perfect. The attention to detail is perfect right down to the size of the buttons. The look and feel of the fabric is beautiful. The lining is pretty and so soft. Even for neutral tones the colors are rich and the sheen of the fabric is gorgeous. Makes it perfect to wear on a cool evening with a dress. And the fit is perfect; so comfortable. Looks great on, with or without the belt. I went with the sizes that were shown on the screen while the trench coat was being presented on air, rather then the sizes that QVC has on its website. As soon as I put this trench coat on and looked in the mirror any feelings of buyers remorse that I had about the price and buying two was dispelled.
Didn't care for material
I imagine this cost would be better in black due to it looking slippery. I didn't care for the material. My recommendation for a different JR trench is below.
I really like this coat. The blue is lovely and its quite comfortable to wear. It does run big all over; I got the large but probably could have gone for the med for a more fitted look. But I can pull it off because I have broad shoulders and am tall. Plus, it feels more cozy oversized. However, I can see how it would overwhelm a smaller frame. I had no problem with loose buttons or wrinkles.
i JUST RECEIVED IT THIS MORNING AND WOW.... ITS GORGEOUS!!! i CAN;T WAIT TO WEAR IT.. ITS ONE OF THOSE PIECES YOU FAL IN LOVE WHEN... AND WHEN YOU'VE WORN IT OUT - YOUR SAD TO SEE IT GO. jOAN YOU DID GOOD ON THIS ONE!
I have this trench in the stone and the black. It is the perfect trench. Every detail is perfection. Have shopped for a trench for a while and this one surpassed all the others I have seen and tried on. LOVE the lining, great deep pockets, adjustable sleeves at wrist..having two different heights belt loops is pure genius...can't say enough about this lovely coat. Every where I have worn it I have gotten compliments. The only thing I would say on the down side is the way it was packaged..the plastic bag should be replaced by a box. The coat is far to classy to come in a plastic bag.
I ordered this jacket and was very excited to get it however when it came all of the buttons were practically falling off and one actually did disappointed will be sending back
My trench coat arrived sooner than expected and that's a plus. I love the pink and it fits great! I will be purchasing another color soon. Thanks for the great service!
Great Good Looking Coat
I have ordered this trench in the blue and black and came back for the neutral/Ivory
It's very classy and will go anywhere I need a light weight coal. The price was affordable and I took the easy pay option, therefore I can enjoy while I pay.
The quality is great. I ordered the XL in both colors ,therefore, I can wear a jacket or sweater and it's comfortable.
Great Trench coat!
I have ordered several of Joan Rivers' items and I love them all. Her products are great quality, stylish, and affordable. Her items are age appropriate for almost everyone. I'm 49 and I love all of her things! Thank you Joan and Thank you QVC!
I feel like a million bucks in this coat! The picture doesn't do it justice. It looks prettier than any I've ever seen at the stores. I just wish there was a coat hook at the neck. Other than that I couldn't be happier with my new coat. Thanks Joan Rivers for such a quality product!
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!
