The recently released J. Crew Chateau Trench Coat was at the top of my must-have list! This coat is one of the many reasons why I love J. Crew. The fit, the quality, the design = SUPERB.
Here are IRL pictures of the trench:
And, here is a picture of the inside lining. The gingham detail is super striking. It's a great feature:
Fit/Details: I took my normal size 12 in this trench, so it fits TTS. There are two reviews on the J. Crew website that indicate this trench fits slightly smaller than the J. Crew Chateau Parka in Stadium-Cloth. I did not notice the trench fitting smaller. Both of these pieces fit similar in the arms for me. But, that could be because I am wearing a thinner shirt underneath the trench, the J. Crew Perfect Shirt in Crinkle Gingham. Unlike the wool version of this coat/trench, this version does not have a detachable hood. And, the trench does flare out slightly at the bottom, but it does so in a flattering way. The material is the perfect weight--not too light, not too heavy. This is a great piece. I highly recommend it.
And, here is the Pinterest image that sold me on this beauty:
Finally, here is a picture of the shoes that model is wearing, the J. Crew Sloan Plaid d'Orsay Flats with Bow:
I took my normal size 9 in these shoes. Fit is TTS. The shoes are super comfortable right out of the box. And, this trench also looks great with the J. Crew Sloan d'Orsay Flats in Batik Floral:
These shoes fit TTS as well.
