Review for the J. Crew Thinsulate Double-cloth Metro Coat
Review for the J. Crew Double-cloth Slim Trench

Mint is undoubtedly the color of this spring, and my closet must be prepared for that! After the two J. Crew winter coats I have reviewed previously, the Double-Cloth Slim Trench and the Double-Cloth Metro Coat, it is time to feature my favorite winter piece from the closet, the Double-Cloth Funnel Coat. It has a very minimalist design, just like all the other J. Crew coats, less is more. What really says “I’m ready for spring” is the minty color, a nice balance between the cooler winter nights and the greener spring days. The mint is not too green, not too pale or creamy. J. Crew really spent a lot of time looking for the perfect hue of this color, and I couldn't be happier with it.

As far as sizing goes, I normally wear a 0, but this one is actually a size 4 with some tailoring work done to better fit my torso. The sleeves are still a little bit loose, but not to the point where i felt like I needed to tailor them. I couldn’t complain about the length of this jacket, which falls perfectly 1 inch up from my knees with my 5'5'' height. The sleeve length and the shoulders can be a little off - when I purchased the coat, the only other size available was 0P, with the sleeves ending at least 2 inches above my wrists; although I went two sizes up from usual, the shoulders on this size 4 coat fits my narrower than average shoulders surprisingly well. Therefore, I recommend trying it on before making the purchase or order at least one size up and do some small adjustments after.


How do you like this one compared to the other two coats I reviewed before? Do you own any mint pieces?

  4. Omg, so so gorgeous! That mint color is scrumptious; I had the Double Cloth Boulevard Trench in the same color on my mental wishlist. And I loooove the white and gold dress -- so precious, together with the mint green! It's great that you were able to get tailoring that made the coat fit better; I got the Icon Trench in Wool-Cashmere and the bodice is rather boxy so I might end up looking for tailoring.

  6. Out of the three j.crew coats you posted reviews on which is the warmest? Can you rank them from warmest to coldest? Have you ever tried the lady day coat by them?

    1. Hi Naomi - sorry for the late response. For your j.crew coats purchase next winter... I would say the metro coat is the warmest, then the funnel coat, and then the slim trench coat. I did try the lady day coat before. The fit is similar to the trench coat, and it feels pretty warm too. The thickness is similar to the funnel coat.

      Hope that helps!
