Joan Rivers Water Resistant Military Style Trench Coat
I am giving one star because you have to give one to write a review. This was the worst purchase I have ever made from QVC by far! I am surprised that QVC would put their name behind such a poorly made product. This was the first and last time I will buy something made by Joan Rivers. I am a huge Dennis Basso fan; I chose this jacket because I really wanted a spring color for my vacation. I had to buy a different jacket while on vacation because this one was not fit to wear... I loved Dennis Basso to start with, now I love him even more.. He really knows how to make clothing.. Joan I think you’re in the wrong business!!!
I have had my eye on this for a year! I am very pleased with the clearance bargain! Chose the pink, an orchid color, and it is really pretty. The buttons are a pinky bronze color. I plan to wear this in the spring and summer casually to sporting events and on the weekend, etc. It is like a windbreaker, as stated in the presentation. I can picture wearing it with the sleeves rolled/ pushed up with shorts to my son's evening baseball games and it won't matter if its rain or shine.
poor quality not water resistant .the first day it rained the coat did not protect me at all .water came straight thru I was wet poorly made the bottom when butten did not meet together nicely .a disappointment
I received the jacket and tried it on. It was too big. It looked like a moo moo on me. I tried to understand the belt. It was sewn at the sides and I could not make it work with the jacket. I had to send it back. I hope her other items are not as bad.
Cute Little Rain Jacket
Don't know what people are complaining about? This is a cute little jacket for spring, summer and early fall. Very light weight but you can easily put a sweater on under it. Super cute, love the details!!!!!
Not as expected....
This is getting one star just for the color (beautiful shade of pink). There is not much wearability to this jacket: length & sleeves are too long and loose, hood way too big for its intended purpose, belt pretty much pointless because awkward to tie and/or belt around waist. I didn't expect material to be so thin for it being a trench coat. This item was not a particularly good purchase for me personally, but I will not stop shopping the Joan Rivers collection because she has such classic fashion style.
Summer Weight Topper
After LISTENING to the presentation and video, I purchased this jacket to wear in our Alabama rainy heat filled summers. I ordered my QVC regular size and fit fine. The belt issue with others is puzzling to me. It's sewn in so you won't lose it. I tie it in the front, tie it in the back, or just let it hang. The sleeve strap flips out on me so I just tacked it down at the end with matching thread and it's perfect. If you need a LIGHT WEIGHT rain jacket for 90+ degree weather, then this is for you
Worst Purchase Ever From QVC
I almost had to laugh when I opened the package. The material was like a really thin windbreaker. The "coat" was so wrikled I don't know how I would've even attempted to straighten that out. When I tried it on, the belt was completly useless. It does not pull tight and the part where you pull it through the hardware was at my side and up high. Didn't make ANY sense at all. This was my first Joan River's purchase and for $60 after S/H it will certainly be my last! Sent back the same day!
Not what expected
Normally I love Joan Rivers Items, be it jewelry or clothing. But am sorry to say I was very disappointed in this. Agree with other reviews. Fit is off and the quality is poor. Even for the clearance price it was not worth it. I honestly was so surprised to see it wasnt even lined for the price. It is a fancy windbreaker at best. Sorry Joan, the only thing I liked about this was the pink color. I will be returning the 2 I bought.
I looked forward to getting this trench coat....but had to return it. It was really light weight and the sizing was off. the hood was huge and the belt made no sense.
lots of epaulets, collars, and buttons going on around the face. It was more a jacket than I had expected..I wanted a short coat. Just not what I expected.
This is such a cheap quality, this is a glorfied windbreaker not a Trench Coat. I was very dispappointed, first item that I ordered from Joan Rivers. Too bad I was really looking for a nice trench coat. The belt makes absolutley no sense.
This is my first Joan Rivers purchase. I wanted a light-weight rain jacket with style and this seemed to fit the bill. It is functional, but the style details are poorly done. My first and biggest complaint is that the belt is not a full belt. It is sewn into the side seams. The straps at the wrist are not functional, but only decorative. The epaulets are not well attached and just look messy. The buttons attaching the epaulets also are a problem for a purse strap. The pockets are in the side seam and just getting your hands in them is awkward.
I am keeping it for function, but could not recommend it to anyone.
