A72570 - M by Marc Bouwer Faux Patent Leather Trench Coat
This trench/jacket is VERY cute. So many compliments and it isn't very 'noisy', but it is shiny. It is a GREAT slicker-like material, but looks very high fashion. Very flattering cut and can completely update any outfit! The mocha is a great color choice, too. I would have taken the black as well if it was available. Comfortable, flattering and different. True to size and Marc Bouwer does it again! Super cute on!
Love Love this Trench
Wow...Absolutely Love this Trench Faux Patent Trench...Looks amazing on..Fits perfectly gives you an awesome waistline!!!!!!!!!! And another reviewer eluded to the fact about the noise of it and other people would be laughing..I say who cares? And I find it doesnt make that that much noise....Anyway, one note on the sizing, IMO, I would size down...It does run a little big...I ordered a large and probably could of went for a medium...But all in all....I LOVE IT! Thanks Marc :-)
It's Really Cool !
I ordered this coat despite all the reviews that said the fabric was noisy. It is, but I didn't see that as a major issue. The fabric does tend to stick to itself a bit so tie the belt exactly where you want it-don't try to pull it through the buckle. The style is great and it is well made. It's very fashion forward and unique. If you're not desirous of attracting attention, then it's probably not for you. My one big problem with it is the sizing. I found it to be huge. I'm a 10/12, always, but rather small busted, so the medium was way too big for me. I'm having to send it back, only for this reason, not because I don't like it. Unfortunately, it's no longer available in small.
Almost every designer with a name has a patent leather trench coat in their Fall Collection. And I for one wish that Marc had put a little more thought and effort in selecting a material that wasn't so annoying to wear. The style is gorgeous and the Mocha color is to die for, but the material is so noisy. How can anyone try to take it off around people without wondering if they're not laughing at you. Well, needless to say mine found its way back to the good folks at QVC.
what's the problem
bought this in the mocha and love the item. Only problem is the belt is too long and doesn't fit the size. Design is great. Received complements on coat. You'll spend three times this in dept stores for same materials. Remember it is a slicker and it is faux, but with a different deign and to me worth it
I agree with the earlier review. Cheap material, belt too long, and the material is so fake the belt cannot tie for a trench look. Although, it is a great design. The coat just needs better material to make it wearable. Obviously, it went back.
Expected so much more from M. Not much else to say except very disappointed. It is like a blue light special rain slicker.
So much nicer than the same old raincoat!
I bought this coat and have worn it several times walking in downtown Toronto during the rain....trendy style for not a lot of money...I bought the mocha and it looks great with a black blouse and black slacks....with the noise of the traffic in the city who could even hear the noise of the coat that some ladies have complained about!
Too much !
Too much material, too much design detail, too much belt, just too much!
That said, it could be that it just didn't look right on my body type. I like the mocha color, I generally like the trench style, but somehow it didn't work for me.
Regretfully, I returned it, but I would still recommend others to give it a try since it is a fashion statement item.
Love the Style, Hate the Material
I love the style of the jacket. So modern, chic, but elegant. But the patent faux leather... Oh, no, no! It is noisy like advertising myself to everyone "Here I come!". And this material sticks to each other so the belt is so hard to go through the buckle. (By the way, the belt is way too long!) Just patent faux leather make this jacket look cheap. And you can feel it is cheap material like wearing plastic. And paten faux leather is not breathable so it is like a sauna suit. Because of the design, it is not suitable for cold weather so if you wear this jacket in damp rainy day, it may keep you dry but may be too hot. As much as I love the design, I returned it because the matrial is wrong. Very disappointed. I would rather pay a few times more price for real leather (patent or not like soft lamb leather) with the same design.
If you want to feel like a human Glad Bag !! Love the style ...Hate the noise. Please make it in a cloth fabric and I'll be the first in line to buy it.Sorry it has to go back.
Vive Marc Bouwer!
I love this coat. I can't wait for the weather to get cooler. Yes, it is a bit noisy, but it actually gets better once it gets warm from the body heat--I wore it for about 2 hours at home because I could not bear to take it off. Last year, I saw a coat like this in France that was pretty much unaffordable on a teacher's salary; I am so happy that Marc brings us this kind of high fashion so reasonably priced via QVC.
