Isaac Mizrahi Live! Quilted Coat with Adjustable Scarf
I've had and worn this coat constantly during the colder months for two years!! It's a little stiff to start out but softens up after a while...give it a chance. It's not a zero degree coat but it's warm, comfortable and not bulky in temps 25-50...great for layering and travelling! I have the grey...it's more of a soft black.
Only four stars because my zipper is a little temperamental.
Now that it's at Last Clicks price...I'm going back for the red!!
Love love love this coat!
I love this coat, great value, awesome fashion statement! Lots of compliments!
I just received my coat and I wasn't sure about the quilted pattern on the coat, but it's very nice. The fit is great and I'm buying more for xmas gifts.

I received this coat today, I am smaller at the top and larger on the bottom. 16-18 and 20/22 bottom. Well this coat does not work for people that are not one size like 14 at top and bottom. It fit at the top but too small at the bottom. COAT... Quilted and has a warm lining at the top on the inside of the coat. Zip/Snap....The coat has a zipper and snaps. NECK BOW....The neck box looked okay but you can take it off. LENGTH..AT 5'6 the length is to my upper knee and I love it. This coat just did not work for my figure type but it is a nice coat. I would recommend ordering two sizes to see which one fits, I went up a size and that was not necessary for me but the arms did seem slightly snug.
Not the Best Fit
Fell in love with this jacket online, but the fit was not great. It ran small across the back and I had to return it. Find that Isaac's clothes run a little small compared to other lines on QVC.
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.
