I loved the look and design of this trench. The attention to detail was again great; the faux leather trim on the collar and down the front side, large faux leather buttons. I liked the coat's back and the way the dart split. But this coat had one of the same problems as with the diamond topper had. Not enough room was given in the upper bicep area. Like a previous reviewer noted, she could not lift her arms to grab the steering wheel. This is a very common mistake by many designers. They just don't make the upper sleeve area have enough comfortable room. I had just a winter turtleneck beneath. Working women wear sweaters, blazers, and any season of a coat has to accommodate these articles. It is not fun having to carry your blazer or sweater in a tote bag because it doesn't fit under your coat. I wasn't quite crazy for the choice of color with the black. I thought it was ivory like the other collection pieces. But this ivory had kind of a greenish undertone. I couldn't quite pin down the color. It was okay, but it was not flattering to my complexion like a regular ivory and black. I would have preferred just regular ivory (cream) and soft jet black.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Perfect Fit Polished Look
from Rosslyn Ontario
I love everything about my trench coat. The fit is perfect and I am an average size 8 which is the size I ordered. The finishing details from the faux leather trim and buttons to the matched plaid at all of the seams indicate the quality of this coat. I've worn it a number of times already and it makes me feel very put together. I love this line of clothing and would definitely order more pieces in the future.
Size this one way up
By Lolo the shopper
I sized one up on this one but still, the shoulders, upper arms and chest area were still too tight to be able to function properly while wearing it. Same thing with another jacket I bought in the line. Loved the coat but I am not sizing up again. So, unfortunately, I must return it. There's a good chance that I won't take a chance on other IM jackets, especially with the new shipping policies. Once again, I recommend if you are really small on top (shoulders, upper arms and chest).
Love my New Trench Coat
from Thunder Bay Ontario
Received my new trench coat and I'm just delighted with the quality and fit. Even the buttons are covered in faux leather. All of the plaid pattern is matched at the seams, another sign of a quality garment and the faux leather piping gives it a great finished look. I didn't have any issues with sizing. I wear a size 8 and that's what I ordered. I have average size arms and the sleeves fit perfectly. Sorry to hear that other people had a different experience with the fit but it may have been a pattern issue at the factory. I wouldn't hesitate to order another piece from Isaac Mizrahi.

Sleeves very narrow
This coat is beautiful and great quality. I just wish they would have allowed a little extra room in the sleeves. I tried this coat on with just a blouse and was unable to even grab the steering wheel of my car. Wearing it to work with a suite jacket is totally out of the question. Too bad as I absoultely LOVED this item.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Runs very small
Before ordering this coat I measured my old coat that I was replacing which is a size 6. Because this one is double breasted I decided to order up a size or two and got a 10. It doesn't even come close to buttoning. Very disappointed. I'd probably have to get a 14 or 16 which seems ridiculous. I am recommending as I like the look of the coat, but be careful of the sizing.
The quality is great BUT the fit is small. I am not a big girl but my arms were way too "fat" to fit in the small arms of this coat. This is made more for a petite arm if you ever want to be able to hold the steering wheel of a car or wear a suit jacket underneath. Very disappointed considering my measurements fit the size chart. Guess they should add the circumference of the arm.

An updated, trendy style for a trench
There's much I like about this coat - it takes a trench-style coat out of the ordinary. the fabric looks good for polyester, love the colour and the added touch of faux leather binding. I've downgraded this coat because of the fit: I ordered size 6 but looking at the size measurements either size 2 or 4 should have fit. There's something weird about the cut - the sleeves are a bit long on me and they feel like two stovepipes -- quite tight although I have small arms and was wearing quite light-weight garments underneath. The front has abundant fabric but the back feels tight -- like if I overreach the back will rip. I tried other coats (smaller sizes) from other designers wearing the same clothes and they were very comfortable. Too bad -- love the styles, fabric but if I keep this coat, I must wear summer-weight garments underneath.
