JCrew Factory City Coat Review

I’ve wanted a JCrew coat for years.  The great quality and interesting color choices of their coats have always drawn me to them.  I’ve ordered several over the past few years.  However, year after year, they never fit me right!  I think my issue is I’m somewhere in between their regular and petite sizing.  I feel like I look like I’m swimming in the regular sizes…the arms and length are always way too long.  Petite sizes don’t look proportionate on me, and the arms are way too short.

This year, I finally decided to try JCrew Factory to see how their coats compare.  The JCrew Factory City Coat is the factory version of the JCrew Cocoon Coat.  I was pleasantly surprised to find that these fit me much better!  The quality isn’t quite as high as the JCrew version, but it is still high quality, especially for the price.  The color selection also isn’t nearly as exciting, however this bright blue is great.  I did need to size down several sizes to get a good fit, but I’m glad I played around with sizing and found something that worked.  Petite sizing in the factory version still looked odd on me, regular sizing was the way to go.

So if you find that you are in between regular and petite sizing in JCrew coats, give the JCrew Factory versions a try.  Hopefully you will have the same luck that I did!

    Thank you so much for this review! I have been thinking of replacing my camel car coat with this coat for a while, and I may pull the trigger after seeing your review. Love how you styled this gorgeous blue coat.

    Wow, this coat looks like it was made for you – the color is beautiful and bright and unexpected.
    Glad to hear you found a coat that fit because sometimes for us “little people” sizing can be a pain.

    I have this coat in tan and I’m so happy with the purchase! It is a wider fit in the body then I usually like but now that I’m used to it, I love this coat! It’s warm! Hope you are having a great week!

    xo, Sarah

    Oh my gah this coat is amazing!! It looks so gorgeous on you. I have a hard time with coats in general. I have wide shoulders so if they fit my shoulders they are too big but if they fit my body better they are usually tight around my shoulders and short in the arms. I will definitely be keeping this coat/Jcrew Factory in mind for future coat purchases.
