Isaac Mizrahi Live! Quilted Coat with Adjustable Scarf
Perfect for Me...Definitely Size Up One
This is a gorgeous on-trend quilted coat. I did heed other reviews and sized up from 10 to 12. I am 5 ft 7 in, slender but busty, and the coat fit perfectly. I am very happy with the color (red) and style. The coat feels right for this fabric and style, and I did not think it was too stiff as other reviewers have mentioned. I am happy the scarf is removable with three small buttons and will only wear it on extremely cold days. More than likely, I will use another pattern scarf or tuck this one in the top of the coat. I have seen similar luxury name coats go for $400 and higher at the outlet mall. I am pleased with my purchase!
Listened to the reviews and sized up. It fits snug all around. Especially in the arm holes. This is the 4th item I have ordered from Issac and all have had a problem. The maxi dress was way too big. Had to return and size down. But, the back elastic was too week to hold up the weight of the skirt. Had to replace that. Ordered black capris. The fit was great. The material picked up everything but $. A boyfriend sweater too snug had buttons pulling. Now this. Issac's clothes look great, but I'm done trying.
Size Runs VERY SMALL!
Bought this in the grey in a size 12. Very slim fitting. Could not wear with a sweater or top underneath. Sleeves are cut very narrow and tight under the arm. Definitely not a coat fit. The neck is too tight. Love the color and style (quilting is exquisite)- just a poor fit. Scarf is not necessary (goofy looking).
Flattering on the Body, Odd Draped over my arm
This coat in red looks good for my olive complexion. Warm and elegant.
When you take it off it is so stiff you could stand it up in your passenger seat and zoom through the HOV lane. Draped over the arm it sticks out and looks strange.
This coat washes beautifully.
My neck and chest get so cold in the winter. I like the high neck and the optional scarf
Based on the garment sizing, I would take a 12 in this coat (as I have in other IM coats), however, based on reviews, I sized up to a 14...way too tight in the arms and bust...exchanged for a 16 because I liked the style. Alas, the 16 will be returned for the same reason...sizing is off more than just a bit to say the least! Furthermore, the coat I received puckers in the back at the bottom which may or may not be due to the lining. The fact that the fabric is stiff could have been overlooked had all else been satisfactory. .
Love the coat but wished I read reviews. Size up !
Odd sizing and stiff fabric
I have purchased several Isaac Mizrahi jackets/coats and ALWAYS been so pleased. I bought this coat wanting to replace two old black quilted ones I currently own. I read the reviews about questionable sizing so I bought two different ones figuring one of them work. I normally wear an XL in this line and bought an 18 and a 20. For me, the 18 was enormous through the chest but fit properly through the waist and hip. In addition, the fabrication was quite stiff and didn't move well. I like this type of coat very much but something was very off here.
I love my red coat!!
I ' m glad I listened too the other reviews and sized up. My coat fits fine and got a sweater on with it. Wore it for the first time today 1/14/14 and got tons of compliments. This is my second Issac coat and will not be my last. Just size up and you will love this coat too!!!
Great looking coat!!
This is my first coat from Issac, after reading the reviews I sized up 1 size and I'm glad I did. I am a 12 but wanted to be able to wear sweaters under it for really cold Pa days. The coat is very nice looking and a great value. I am 5'3" tall and weigh 155lbs. I wanted a coat that would be longer than my 3/4 length leather coat so it would cover my backside when I wear my leggings / jeggings and boots! It is perfect for that!! The sleeves were a lil too long for me because the coat is not a "petite" so,, I rolled them under and used needle and thread to shorten them and no one will ever know!!!
The removeable scarf is a more dressy look in my opinion, I like it for church but I do take it off at times and I add some of my own scarfs and that looks great too!! I am a happy girl!!
Very Cute, But...
This is such a cute coat and I love the scarf that is also detachable (thanks Isaac:)). But...buyers beware-it does run small. I ordered up one size and it fits just perfect. The only thing that bothers me somewhat is that the lining in the sleeves makes it hard to put the coat on over sweaters.
While I have encountered sizing issues line to line, never so much within the same line as I have this year with Isaac. I purchased a beautiful quilted red coat in a size 12 before the holidays which looked and fit great. After reading the reviews of this coat decided to size up to the 14 in the slate gray and it is still tight, back it goes. it is frustrating that the sizing is so off on two very similar coats.
Stylish and Warm
Purchased this coat in August to wear for my annual trip to NY in December. It snowed this year during my visit and this coat kept me warm. I purchased a 1X and I didn't feel like the Michelin man. Great coat!!!
