Bloomingdales - Currently $98.99 or thereabouts. They have a few petites left. It's called the Funnel Coat
Old Navy - around $100. I love funnel necks even though an ivory coat w/a neckline like that would be bad for makeup and vice versa. I am curious how it feels in person, but doubtful I'd buy it. I have enough double breasted coats.
Jolie for St. John
Two magazine cutouts I've had for quite some time.
J Crew Lady Day(79203, regular) - Wool/nylon. $330, most colors currently on sale for $280. Add $20 more for Thinsulate. I have no recs on Thinsulate because of our mild climate. The 5 buttons are nice, but too distracting for my taste. There is no back vent on this coat. I passed. Not because of the vent, but because of the number of buttons and I'm not moved by the 2 seams that run down the front on either side of the buttons. That creates a more structured look than I want and might be distracting on the bust area if the seams run in a funny way across a fuller chest. I would like to try this on person in the event a really fun color goes on Final Sale. I would be surprised if this satisfied my ivory obsession. I'm banking on the Plaza.
J Crew Plaza (96914, regular) - 90%Wool/10%Cashmere. $325, currently on sale or promo for $250. Apparently items ending in $0.99 are considered sale (not promo) and may be subject to Final Sale. And items ending in $0.50 or $0.00 are temporarily on sale. There are 2 seams that run down the front, but they stop at the pockets. Also, they are not stitched into a raised position and are, therefore, less noticeable than on the Lady Day. I ordered this one in Ivory and am hoping it works out.
The Plaza I ordered for my mom in Black in a P2. I could fit it and button it, but the sleeves were a little short. Plus, I'd want to wear a light sweater underneath. I am usually a P4 or P6. I ordered the P4 in Ivory. I asked the CS for the bust size and I can't recall what she said on the P4, but I know it was 37" on the P6. I will post pics of the Ivory when I receive it.
ETA: Received the ivory Plaza
Overall I like the cut & look of the coat. I have more of a waist in the coat than this photo shows. I think the Lady Day would cut more of a waist, but it might not work well on me.
I am very happy with the P4. I haven't tried it with a sweater underneath but I always do thin layers. The only minor thing I am not fond of is that the inside breast pocket makes an indentation that shows on the exterior. I thought it was a wrinkle but it is the outline of the pocket. Not really a big deal. I really wish I could try on the Lady Day (79203) because of the on seam pockets. You can't really rest your hands comfortably in the front flap pockets on the Plaza, but I like it for now.
