Centigrade Trench Coat w/Contrast Trim and Removable Liner
REALLY SMART LOOKING
UNLIKE THE PREVIOUS REVIEWS, I DID NOT FIND THIS BULKY AT ALL, QUITE THE CONTRARY.. BEING A LITTLE THICK AT THE MIDDLE, I AM PICKY ABOUT BELTS AND SUCH BUT FOUND NO PROBLEM WITH THE BELT OR QUILTED LINING. ON THE BLACK AND WHITE THE STAND UP COLLAR WAS PARTICULARLY SMART. I HAD ALSO WONDERED ABOUT A CONTRASTING BUTTON, BUT I THINK THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A DETRIMENT.
looked better on TV
I tried this on straight out of the box and saw myself increase significantly in size. It's quite puffy with the liner it in. I didn't bother to try it without because I ordered the coat hoping to get wear out of it during different seasons. I also think the black/white combo would look nicer with white buttons; the contrast trim on it was a little underwhelming for the overall look. Although I am sending it back, I think someone who doesn't mind the "puff factor" or doesn't care about using the liner could appreciate this. It did seem like it would be pretty warm and would probably hold up into winter, if not throughout the whole season (depending on where you live). This is the first clothing purchase I've made from QVC, but I found it true to expected size. The length was also good.
The liner of this coat fits like a "puffy" coat which makes the coat look immature. It is really large in the upper body, but fits well in the bottom. I bought this in a Large and didn't bother trying for the smaller size simply based on the look of the coat. This could've been very nice, but this is very yuck.
