J. Crew’s field jacket has been a staple in my closet for more than half a decade. It’s the perfect lightweight option for cooler days when an extra layer is necessary but not a full-blown winter coat. With spring (hopefully) around the corner, and J. Crew running sales regularly, it’s a totally timeless piece that’s worth snagging, especially with a discount! Read this JCrew Field Jacket review for all of the details on this classic closet staple!
JCREW FIELD JACKET REVIEW
FIT & SIZING
The J.Crew field jackets range in sizes from XXS to 3X, and come in 3 sizing options: petite, regular, and tall.. In J.Crew sizing, I am between a 0 petite or a 00 regular. In this particular style, I find that the longer length of the 00 regular works better for my long arms and is still slim enough throughout the body to work on my overall petite frame. The 00 regular also has some added room under the arms to allow for any heavier sweaters or layers.
The newly updated downtown field jacket is manufactured from a sustainable fabric of organic cotton, which is a welcome upgrade from its former fabric (the one I’m wearing here). Sustainability is so important, and it’s great to see J.Crew making strides to improve its products in this area.
Since I purchased this coat, back in 2014, it now comes in a beautiful mossy brown color–which I really love. If I were in the market for this jacket today, I would definitely snag this color, as I think the updated hue is much more versatile with my current wardrobe. Additional styles are also available in a larger range of neutral colors, which are all beautiful.
FIELD JACKET STYLES
J.Crew has expanded its field jacket line to include some really smart-looking quilted versions, as well as a longer option. The quilted option comes in several colorways, all of which are great neutral colors to add to your wardrobe–a really classy and timeless option to add to your closet.
