Jeans: H&M kids sz 11/12
I picked up the Mini Ivybrdige in sz 12Y/152cm (my height exactly!) for $475. In comparison, the adult Ivybridge sells for $995. This one fit the best out of the three. Continue reading for my review...
Material: the trench material (53% cotton, 37% poly) is much more in line with what I am looking for (unlike the Nordstroms coat) but it was still a little off. The material didn't seem like it was treated with any water-resistant coating, and it looked like spills or stains could easily seep in and settle. It also seemed wrinkle-prone.
Cut/style: Aside from having no defined waist, this cut is pretty much exactly what I want. Very classic look, nicely-proportioned collar & lapel, gun flap (in the kids coat descriptions, they call this a "fun flap"...lol!), and buckle detailing.
Measurements: Slimmer than the womens' 2P from Nordies. 17" across at the underarms, 17" across at the waist, 20" across the bottom. 36" total length, 22" sleeve length, 6" sleeve width, 14.5" shoulder width.
Trying it on with flats:
1. The belt was a measly 35 inches long (the belt on my raincoat is 56 inches) and it was attached at the back center (see below pic), so you couldn't move it around. There were also no prongs nor belt holes in the belt.
2. I called the Burberry store to see if alterations on full-priced kids coats were also free. They said yes! I just have to mention though that every time I get alterations at the Burberry store, they try to pressure me against getting everything I want done (I do ask for a lot). My advice is to listen to what they have to say, but stand firm on exactly how you want your coat to fit.
Overall, I was surprisingly pleased by this coat. The other styles I ordered (Boys $475 trench and Boys $375 trench) were not worth photographing...but here is one anyways, just for laughs:
