Abroad Trench Coat

Abroad Trench Coat is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new Spring Jacket! At first I was uncertain whether to purchase this jacket based on the mixed reviews, but I did and boy am I glad I did. It is so comfortable and stylish unlike many other trenches out there. Not too heavy, but It will give me just the right amount of warmth for cold mornings that ease into warmer days. The pockets are nice and big and when I tie the jacket it just looks so cute. I am 5'4" 122lbs and bought the small. The sleeves are the right length as is the length. I did not see an issue with extra fabric. I saw a feminine flattering shape. The fabric is soft. I will need to iron it but no biggie. I can wear it to work or casual errands. An anything jacket in a flattering tone that does not make me look sickly since I am fair skinned with blonde hair. Just love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs Large! I am a little over 5' tall and 135 lbs. Bra: 36C / 29" waist / 36" hips I bought a X Small and it skims over my body just right. It looks amazing! It's 100% cotton so easy maintenance: wash warm or cold and hang dry, iron. No dry clean necessary. (hate that dry clean smell, eco friendly of not) The slits make it super comfortable to wear (you don't feel restricted in the legs at all) I may take it to the tailors to get it shortened, but I do like the long look on myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! I love everything about this coat! The lightweight cotton, the high slits on the sides and all the different ways you can wear it. It is very comfortable, the color is perfect and you can dress it up or down. I would say it is true to size but because I am busty I went up a size and the fit is perfect. I am 5'5 and the hem ends at my knee. Super happy with this purchase! Highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfectly professional, just runs a bit large! I love this trench coat; I am so glad I bought it for spring and summer. It's durable and keeps me warm on my way to and from work. I love the slits because it prevents the coat from dragging me down and helps elevate my look. I find this important since I am fairly petite at 5'3. However, my only complaint about the trench coat is that it runs on the larger side in terms of the sleeve and coat length. In order to accommodate my height, I took an XXS. Another thing I wish they did was make it in black so I could pair it with my monochromatic pieces.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from oversize look I am 5'8" and 130 lbs and I looked lost in this jacket. It was too overpowering even on my fairly tall frame. I got the medium because I fall in the size 4/6 range so its hard to know how the madewell brand will fit because of their different sizing. Not sure the small would've looked any better but the color was awful on me also with very fair skin and dark brown hair. I looked like a ghost although I really liked the color, just not on me. I suggest giving it a try because it is a classic trench with a twist (side slits), which is very cool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT! Wow! This trench coat is so versatile. You can dress it up or down depending on what you wear. Very light-weight-- perfect for Spring and layering! The slit on the sides give it a special/unique touch. I'm 5'3" and I got the XS, which is the size I usually get for most of my clothing from Madewell (so its true to size!). The fit is perfect, but it's just a little longer for me since I'm on the shorter side. Other than that, everything is AMAZING HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Way too much fabric I'm 5'2 104 pounds. Usually order an XX-small madewell. I ordered the X-small wanting to leave a bit of room. The coat is WAY too long for us shorter girls:) And the cut is super wonky. It runs very large and I didn't notice in the pictures, but there are extra slits in this jacket that run long and along the sides. So, it's just a ton of fabric and looks a little weird cinched up on my tiny frame. It's too bad, it looks super cute on the tall skinny models. This one didn't work out for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for For reference, I am 5' 6", 34B, 120 lbs. I usually wear size small for 90% of my clothing and this was no different. I read the other reviews saying this coat was too oversized so I was a bit worried as I had gotten my usual small. It IS an oversized coat, but appears to be more of a stylistic choice. The shoulders fit well for me which is the most important part. I love that it doesn't have the tabs on the shoulders to create more of a military look. And the color is a classic trench color for the spring. Overall, I do agree with other reviewers that it's oversized but appears intentional for a loose-fitting fit. DO size down if you would like a more tight-fitting look.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Flattering if you're a size 0. Light coat, not really good for warmth. It's cute, but the slits on the side don't look good unless you're a size 0.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too much fabric Cute styling, nice color, quality fabric, but just too much fabric. At 5'2", this coat completely overwhelmed me. Also, not a big fan of the large splits on the sides. Overall effect is just too much coat on a small person. Perhaps suits taller women.
