Joan Rivers The New Classic Trench Coat
This trench is SO not average!
The workmanship of this coat is IMPRESSIVE. The cuffs alone have so many fun and unexpected details. I initially wanted the stone color, but it was sold out in my size. I ordered the "navy" which I knew by the video was more cobalt or royal. Now that I've received it, I'm thrilled with the color. Beautifully lined, too.
I was so excited to get this trench coat and loved it until it was washed. I followed the directions on the tag exactly. Two of the buttons fell off and it lost its sleek shape. I'm so disappointed in the wear of this coat.
I wanted a trench for so long and took the plunge with Joan's. I love it. It fits like a glove and feels quality. Bought black. I'm 5'1 120 and the small was perfect.
I loved it but had to return it for a bigger size. The large was cut small.
Sizing is a major issue with this coat
I bought this coat about 3 years ago in size 1x and in a turquoise blue (I see this color is no longer available). Since it fit perfectly and I've been looking for another trench coat in the classic khaki color, I decided to reordered this coat in Stone in the same size. Well, the coat was way too small! Since I thought this was odd I made sure to try on my original coat to be sure it still fit and it does. So I sent back the 1x in Stone and requested a 2x. When that arrived & I tried that on I was swimming in it!! So I returned that. I guess I'll just be satisfied with the aqua blue coat and look for a khaki-colored one elsewhere.
Besides the sizing issue, I would say this coat is a bit heavier than what one would wear in the warmer months. It's a good weight for spring & fall. The styling of the coat is very nice and looks to be made quite well. I just wish the sizing issue was the same as when this coat was first introduced.
I received this coat last month, and I'm very pleased with my purchase. It has a great fit, and it's warm. The coat does wrinkle in the back somewhat, but I can live with that.
hate sewing new purchases
Loved the coat but not happy about sewing all the buttons back on. They were actually falling off.
I received this coat on "wait list" after 29 days. It arrived a beautiful fuschia size 1x. I noticed that it smelled and thought maybe it was the dye. The entire area around this coat in my home smelled so bad. Every time I walked by the area it got worse. It seemed to small like greasy cigarette smoke. By closely examining the coat I could see creases on the coat in the back bottom edge. It looked like someone had worn the coat and the creases were made by sitting down wearing the coat. There were no tags and the coat looked wrinkled throughout but was in a fresh (not original) bag. I've never had such a thing happen with anything that I've ordered from QVC. I have returned the coat and hopefully don't have to pay the return postage. And I hope no one else gets this coat sent to them. But I really really liked the coat, not the smell.
I love everything about this coat. Next time I will go down a size.
This is a beautifully made coat but the color (orchid) and the irridescent quality was a bit too much for me. Otherwise, it's perfect.
I got this coat as a birthday gift. I wore it three times. Two buttons have already fallen off and the third is hanging by a thread. So now, I'm faced with sewing buttons back on what was supposed to be a big treat to myself....or taking the time to send it back and get another one that probably has the same problem. Inexcusable that this is happening, especially at this price point.
Loved the Coat!
Loved the coat, but returned it due to buttons not secured on coat. I don't expect to make a new purchase and have to repair it prior to wearing it, so it was returned for exchange but was out of stock. I will also add coat sizing is true to size, I normally wear a 1x in coats. I purchased the 2x and really would have still had enough room in the 1x to wear a lite sweater or suit under it. Coat is well made. My one complaint is the way it is shipped in a plastic bag, the coat is too nice for that... should have been placed in a box for shipping. Will try to purchase again once it is back in stock.
