12/10 - ETA: Currently on sale for $229.99
J Crew's boucle' wool scarf coat (10292, 10993 for petite, $350) loomed so bright and so large in size from the rack that I was going to ignore it.
I thought it might be really obnoxious, but I decided to try it on for the blog. I didn't recall seeing this online and my instinct was to tie it like so...
Notice how big the cuff is. I am usually a 4 or 6P. This is a size 2. I would probably order a 4P. I wonder if the cuff is a bit smaller in the 4P. I realize that's the look of the jacket. However, if I purchased this I would consider having it tailored to be a bit smaller.
I would not wear it like this. You might be able to fold one scarf side over the other and pin it with a brooch. That could look cute. However, imo the scarf really begs to be draped in some way around or at the neck.
I was told by an SA it came in golden cypress online, which I do not see. I only see the bright berry as an option. Very cute, very comfortable and cozy. They got this boucle' right, unlike the boucle' on the Penny.
ETA: This is a lighterweight coat. It's definitely meant to be layered or worn on a cool fall/spring day. It's lined, but would not help you one bit in super cold weather.
J Crew -- If you're listening, please tell your phone reps how to properly pronounce boucle' as it is not pron. "bookle."
