The coat is absolutly magnificent!!!
Jacket is so stylish and i RECEIVED multiple COMPLIMENTS the first time i wore ir
THE GOOD: THE STYLE IS GREAT AND REALLY FLATTERING (LOTS OF COMPLIMENTS.) THE ROOMY HOOD IS AWESOME AND KEEPS THE WIND OUT, THE DOUBLE ZIPPER AND SNUG CUFFS REALLY HELP INSULATE AND I APPRECIATE THE SMART DESIGN CHOICES MADE BOTH FOR AESTHETICS AND WARMTH. THE COAT IS COZY IN BELOW ZERO TEMPS AND I LOVE THAT IT'S CRUELTY FREE AND USES RECYCLED MATERIALS.
THE NOT-SO-GOOD: THE STITCHING STARTED COMING APART AFTER ABOUT TWO WEEKS OF SPORADIC WEAR. IT WAS SO SAD! THE ENTIRE SEAM WHERE THE HOOD ATTACHES TO THE BODY OF THE COAT AND THE FRONT ZIPPER PULLED RIGHT APART WITH STUFFING POPPING OUT AND I KEPT FINDING THREADS DANGLING OFF THE SLEEVES WHERE THE QUILTING STITCHING WAS COMING UNDONE. LUCKILY I SEW SO I FIXED IT MYSELF, BUT I WAS SUPER DISAPPOINTED TO HAVE SPENT SO MUCH $$ ON A WINTER COAT THAT I WAS HOPING WOULD LAST FOR YEARS. THE SIZING ALSO RUNS BIGGER THAN I EXPECTED, BUT NOT ENOUGH FOR ME TO BOTHER EXCHANGING FOR A SMALLER SIZE. I WEAR A US 2-4 AND BOUGHT A SMALL, COULD HAVE COMFORTABLY GONE DOWN TO AN XS I THINK.
I love the material Of the kiki. Its so lightWeiGht, flexible to move Around in so i dont feel stuffy (i had this issue with the faux leather gigi-x). It also has a shiny and soft feel to it. i also have never worn such a waem coat. I was visiting Quebec While it was -9 f and was very toasty. It might be too warm for Anything above 40 F to be honest.
My only complaint is that i wish the waist was more form fitting like it appears in picTures. I am 130lbs and 5’7” and got the small and Feel like the waist doesnt go in much at the waIst, but fits Well eveRywhere else. I might get it tailored.
