@Homegirl, I like the All Season Jacket" very much, I actually might like one without a hood even better, lol. I'm not really fond of hoods.

Re: Coldwater Creek

They used to have a large multi-story store in downtown Seattle.  I always enjoyed shopping there.  Since that closed I have not purchased anything from them but I do get the catalog.

Hi @snicks 

The hood buttons off, in case that changes anything for you.

(Seriously, I am not a shill for CC Woman LOL--  I just really am happy with my own jacket - having worn it now for a few winters.  It's very well put together.  I especially love the two sets of pockets, one set with zippers.  All these pockets are perfect for carrying mittens, keys, dog treats, and other dog items.)

Re: Coldwater Creek

Their store was always interesting to shop in but sizes were all off.  I only ended up with a few pieces from that store and now Soft Surroundings is renting their space in Naperville, IL.

Re: Coldwater Creek

Sigh........way back in the "old days" when Coldwater Creek first began, the clothes were as original as their name! Kind of "I live in a cabin by a creek in....Montana, or Vermont" just really original and fabulously interesting, and like no other store anywhere. 

I too was devastated when they went out of business, and while I am glad to see them back, there is no longer anything original or interesting at all. Now, everything is just expensive Denim & Co.  style.  Somebody needs to go back and look at the old catalogs, and think about what a company named "Coldwater Creek" would show.

Re: Coldwater Creek

I have always loved Coldwater Creek.  We had a store locally where live and it was wonderful to go in and see and try the clothes on.  

 

The only downfall I have is with their sizing.  When we would try clothes at the local store, the sizing for any particular garment was all over the place - many times, running smaller than your normal size.  

 

I am hesitant now to order from the catalog.  Their site doesn't offer "garment sizing" charts like QVC so it's a guessing game when ordering.

Re: Coldwater Creek

@crawford5153- F.Y.I. - I received the corduroy jeans yesterday (surprise!).  They are well made - I love the fabric and the style.  I recommend them for that.  However, they are too big for me in the waist and hips.  I ordered my usual size, 4P, the size I buy in stores.  They fit me like maybe a size 6.  I can't exchange them because 4P is the smallest size they make.  So I'll return them for refund today.  I'm very disappointed since I love them otherwise.

 

This is why I prefer to shop in stores where I can try on clothes before I buy them.

Re: Coldwater Creek

Thanks for replying!  That is a bummer they did not fit you, sorry hon.  I remember if I had any concerns about garment measurements I could call Coldwater and they actually would go get the item and give me the measurements while I was on the phone with them.  Would be nice if they did that now.  Nice to hear they were well made.

 

DId you get anything else as I though you mentioned you ordered a couple things?

This is so true. I used to love to shop there when they had brick & mortar shops.  I just received a blouse and a tshirt from CWC both sized PXL (I wear PL at J.Jill) that I bought on sale.  I went by the measurements in the catalog and the blouse fits perfectly and is so cute.  The Tshirt is so long it is ridiculous for a petite size.  Their return shipping charges are too expensive so it looks like I have a new pajama top.  I've got to toss those catalogs when they arrive and get off the mailiing list.
