Review: JCrew petite stadium-cloth peacoat - 0P

I thought I'd do a quick post on this JCrew basic black short wool peacoat to show you how it looks on me. Kelly from Alteration Needed has already done a very good review of this coat, so I don't need to go into details. I just want to mention what I like about this coat:
-- Fit: very nice on me. What I love the most is how well the arms and chest area fit. It fits snug yet very comfortable.
-- Length: It's a short length coat which is great for transition time like now. I find short coats work very well with knee high boots. This coat is thicker and warmer than the Colletta coat I got without thinsulate.
-- Fabric: I like the feel and look of the fabric of this coat better than the Colletta. It looks like very high quality wool.

Here's how it looks on me buttoned.


Here's how it looks on me unbottoned.

Is Jasmine going to reach my height pretty soon? Yikes!

  1. Ohh, Vicky is looks SMASHING! It fits you perfectly. I wish I'd have ordered a size down as mine is a little bit too big. Very lovely, great purchase. xx

  2. lol, thanks Aubrey. I am not complaining. :) You ordered a 2P? Do you have a post? You are taller than me, I wonder if this will be too short on you.

  7. Hi Vicky, love this coat on you. Looks great :) This morning I was browsing at the jcrew site when I saw the colletta coat in dark plum 2P and of course I was unable to resist such a good deal. But I'm regretting after reading your review and Jean's review, because I have the feeling the 2P is going to fit big on me. I do have a Jcrew coat on 0P but I'm hoping 2P fits close to 0P. Worse case I'll need to do some alterations but I always fear to do that.

  17. Cross our fingers that your coat would fit. Coat alteration must be expensive! I am not an expert, but just look at those thick fabric. I can't even begin to imagine how hard it would be to make it fit. :(

  21. The coat looks so so so much better on you than it did on me! It's really a great coat! Be sure to wear it in many more outfit posts so I can drool over it and live vicariously through you. ; )
