Coats Palooza featuring J. Crew Lady Day Coats and Plaza Coats Review

Edited: Big oops, I am such an ungrateful brat. THANK YOU Sew Petite Gal for the early morning tweet / sale alert. You are an angel.

I did all my last-minute shopping in one trip. At J. Crew, specifically. I took advantage of what must have been a customer appreciation gesture (or a price error, it has not been confirmed) and ordered a bunch of coats as gifts. Before I wrapped up the coats I decided to try them all on for fun.

I'll start with the "modeling" pictures and move on to how the different sizes vary. I only ordered two coats in what I thought was my size and the rest were slightly larger sizes for the extended family members.

The Lady Day Coat in Oasis Green, shown in 00 Regular here, is one that I plan on keeping. The sleeves are a tad long on me but if I went to a petite size the sleeves would be a tad too short. I haven't decided if I want to keep this, but you all know how much I love the color green.

Measurements (courtesy of J. Crew customer service): the chest circumference is 33.75 inches, waist is 29.5 inches, hip is 34.875 inches, across the shoulder is 14.75 inches, sleeve length from the center of the back is 31.25 inches, and the length from the center of the back is 36.5 inches.

Next up is the Lady Day coat in 00P in the color Majestic Purple (the color is more "royal blue" in real life, see below for better pictures). The 00P fits ok on me too but I don't think I can wear five layers underneath for warmth. 

Measurements (courtesy of J. Crew customer service): the chest circumference is 33.25 inches, waist is 28.75 inches, hip is 33.875 inches, across the shoulder is 14.5 inches, sleeve length from the center of the back is 29.125 inches, and the length from the center of the back is 34.5 inches.

I also tried on the Lady Day in 2P for fun. To be honest the Lady Day coats seem to not vary much between sizes. The sleeves are noticeably roomier but it's not undoable.

Measurements (courtesy of J. Crew customer service): the chest circumference is 35 inches, waist is 30.25 inches, hip is 35.5 inches, across the shoulder is 15 inches, sleeve length from the center of the back is 29.875 inches, and the length from the center of the back is 35 inches.

And the last one I wore for pictures is the Radio Red Plaza coat in 0P. I also tried on the 4P for fun but the fit was so off that I look quite ridiculous. I didn't take any usable pictures of the 4P.

Measurements (courtesy of J. Crew customer service): the chest circumference is 34.5 inches, waist is 33 inches, hip is 38.5 inches, across the shoulder is 14.5 inches, sleeve length from the center of the back is 29.5 inches, and the length from the center of the back is 32.75 inches.

And finally, the highlights: comparative shots!

I didn't order any Lady Day's in 0P so here's how the 00 regular compares to the 2Petite. I made a silly error while editing the pictures...the coat pictured below is size 2P, not 4P.

Other than a small difference in width, the 00 regular was noticeably longer in overall length and sleeve length.

And here's a comparative shot of the 00P in Majestic Purple and the 00R in Oasis Green.

So the width of the two coats don't actually differ much. I misaligned them while taking pictures so sorry about that. Again, the most noticeable difference lies in the length of the coat and the sleeves.

And next up is a picture of the Radio Red Plaza Coat in 0P and the Cobalt Plaza Coat in 4P.

The coats are properly aligned in this shot so the difference is more prominent for the Plaza coat than it is for the Lady Day.

And lastly, here's a comparison of the Lady Day and the Plaza, both in size 4P.

The Lady Day is noticeably slimmer in the torso but the length of the sleeves and the overall length is about the same.
