Banana Republic Friends & Family Event!

Banana Republic is having their Friends & Family promotion right now. If you're a cardmember use code BRCARDFF for 50% off regular priced items. 30% off leather, suede, silk, and cashmere.

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and wear a size PXXS in this wool blend twill peacoat.

The fit is pretty spot on. Hits at the hip. Sleeves are the perfect length. The style is really cute. I love the stripe twill pattern that runs diagonally. It comes with a collar tab that is removable. It's a cute detail but probably something I would never use.

Removable tab. I'm not even sure what to call it to be honest!

I love how the back of the jacket looks. The waist is accentuated and looks very pleasing with the button placement. The fit is very comfortable. The wool is soft. The jacket is fully lined. The pocket placement is a little awkward. It's off to the side and the only way to place your hands in is straight down.

It looks even more stylish with the jacket left unbuttoned. The look is very effortlessly put together. However, if you're looking for J.Crew quality, this misses the mark. If you're just looking for something to wear for a season or two and you know you'll wear it a lot, then it is worth keeping. I was super tempted to keep it because it is a very cute jacket and the fit is great. I however have a lot of jackets and winter pieces so I will be returning this one. 


My BR picks


  1. The Peacoat is so cute on you! Like you said the fit is spot on, even the sleeve length is good! I’ve been looking for a classic peacoat for a while and this one fits the bill. Not sure if I like the huge buttons though ...

    The leather moto jacket is cute too but it’s excluded from the current promotion. :(

    1. The huge buttons stick out, but it works. I know I really like the moto jacket but it's only 30% off. If it were 50% I would be suuuuuuper tempted!
