J.Crew Review: Convertible Toggle Coat

Another 40% item (the code “TAKENOTE” is still valid): the Toggle Coat in brilliant flame.  J.Crew does not offer the coat in Tall, so I chose one size up for extra length.

Pros: gorgeous color, a very bright orangish red. Mid length, great quality, versatile with the zipper to remove the hood for a different style.  Also, a hidden zipper in addition to the buttons in the front.

Cons: The hood does not leave much space to fully cover your head (unless I simply have a big one 😉 ); the price tag is high considering the coat is a mixture of wool and polyester, without thinsulate lining for added warmth.  In fact, the coat is pretty light weight, I would say the Majesty Peacoat is much warmer, with a softer wool.

Fit: I’d say true to size for regular; if you are taller than average, I’d recommend to go one or two sizes up to get a decent length in the sleeves.

Material:80% wool and 20% nylon with 100% polyester lining

Sissi’s verdict: final sale so will keep. However, if you are interested in the look, you may want to consider the Runswick Duffle by Jack Wills.  You can see the coat on ClassyGirlsWearPearls as well.

Do you agree? Please share!
