Review: Toggle coat – part 2

Last year, I had purchased the toggle coat in brilliant frame color from the Crew (a review here).  Unfortunately, I had to size up as J.Crew did not offer a tall size.  Well, this year, the toggle coat is back in four colors: navy, henna red, turquoise, navy and olive green. Also, the wool is Melton this time …which appears to be a medium thick wool used for blankets and old military uniforms per this link.

Now, below is a review and if you are interested into purchasing my vibrant flame toggle coat from last fall, email me 😉 Tomorrow, I’ll be reviewing the Collection Harper Calf Hair flats by J.Crew. Stay tuned!

Quality: Very Good.  The wool is warm and high quality, and slighter thicker than last year’s toggle coat version.  The henna color is a deep orange in my opinion, very autumnal.

Fit: True to size.  The tall size is a much better fit for me, went with my regular tall size and the shoulders are well in place and the hood covers my big head.  The sleeve length is ok, I still feel the sleeves could be longer but this version looks more decent on me than last year’s coat.  Zippers and buttons add to the look.

Sissi’s Verdict: Keeper…the promo is good but you may want to hold for sale, if it lasts.
