Nordstrom Fall sale winners: Treasure & Bond jacket + sweater

Treasure & Bond jacket (so many useful features - read on below) and layered sweater 
*coat is an army green color in-person; my lighting makes it appear more yellow*

I cranked up my air conditioning to do a few reviews from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! As mentioned before, this is a sale on new, Fall merchandise and prices go back up for the season on August 3rd. If you don't have a Nordstrom card to get early access, you can use the "save to wishlist" button and order later when the sale is public on July 17th.


First up, this Treasure & Bond utility coat looks lackluster in the stock photos, but turned out to be an unexpected gem in all senses: it fits without alterations, is super functional, is in a versatile style that you see year after year, is machine-washable, and is a very reasonable price for a piece that can convert from a fall jacket to a winter coat. Let's take a closer look...

Measurements of size XXS regular: 14" across the shoulders, 27" total length, and 22" sleeve length. I was especially thrilled that the sleeves were not too long. Material is a quality blend of 97% cotton / 3% spandex on the outer, and 100% poly on the liner. I wanted to point out that the jacket itself, without the removable liner, is already fully lined.

No, I don't think this sherpa liner was intended to be worn as a vest, but I just wanted to clearly show what the removable piece looks like : ) When I first picked up the box this came in, it felt like bricks and I was confused as to what I could've possibly ordered. Turns out this jacket with the liner can easily be heavy enough for late Fall / early winter (especially if you layer underneath). For those who live in mild climates, this can probably serve as a winter coat. The liner is comfy and cozy, and I liked that it was piped in a stylish olive trim.
Next, I wanted to point out that every pocket is functional - no decorative fluff here. In addition, the lower pockets have two ways of entry as shown above. I love the option on the right as it's the most comfortable way for me to rest my hands and keep them warm.

How cool is this - the hood rolls up into a small tube and zips in and out of the collar. It has a drawstring as well to cinch the opening to your head size.

While trying on this jacket, I thought to myself all it needed was a drawstring waist cincher. Lo and behold, when I took off the sherpa vest what do I see? The waist is cut straight, so you can use this drawstring to "shape" it to your body.

A small zip pocket for coins and valuables, in addition to the many snap pockets. The elbows are also reinforced with stitched patching.

On to this layered sweater, also from the same brand. I inadvertently ordered the exact outfit in their lookbook with this sweater and utility jacket, but hey it works. This is a "pre-styled" piece so you can throw it on over skinny bottoms and look ready for the day without a moment of thought. It's hard to gauge materials over the internet, but the knit of this sweater is very soft and comfortable, and not too thin. The blend of the sweater is 55% pima cotton, 25% viscose, 15% nylon, 5% cashmere sweater and the plaid shirt is 100% cotton. Please note the shirt does not actually go underneath the entire sweater - it's just a faux-layered look.

Fit on me in size XXS is a slouchy casual fit, long enough to wear with leggings in my opinion as it just covers the crotch. As you can see below, the sleeves are a little long on short arms but as with most casual sweaters, you can push them up for a scrunched look. Measurements of an XXS: 14" across shoulders, 26" approx. total length, and 22.5" sleeve length.

Closeup - sweater has a waffle-like texture and the plaid has a soft, broken-in finish. This is my first time buying from Treasure & Bond and I have to say I'm impressed by quality and fit. On every item listing it also says 5% of profits are donated to organizations that empower girls and women, which is a bonus.

And unfortunately this one was a miss - the Soia & Kyo double face wool coat in size XXS. I got sent the wrong color, but that issue aside, the material was itchy on me and unlined. I do know that unlined is typical of "double face wool" construction but the overall piece just felt more like a thick cardigan / robe than a true coat to me. This will be going back. My orders were sent in piecemeal (also ended up pulling the trigger on these Cole Haan OTK boots with a very slender calf measurement) so I'll be updating with more hits and misses as they arrive!

  5. Man, that utility coat has everything I want in a jacket but I can't get over the brownish-color...now if that coat came in a darker green version, it would be perfect!

    1. Hmm it does look pretty brown here, probably due to the sun flooding my room. It's more army green in-person. The 3rd pic above is probably most accurate.

  6. Love both pieces. They actually look really cute together! <3

  9. I went back and forth on that T&B sweater wondering if it would be too bulky on a small frame, but seeing it on you its adorable!

  11. Is the sweater machine washable as well or will you be hand washing it? :O Love both the items you kept!

    1. Tag says hand wash cold, but I plan on washing it inside out on the gentle cycle like I do with some other knits with the same care tag instructions. It's too warm for it now, but I'll post an update if there are any issues washing via machine!

  13. Wow, I love your super in depth review! I'm very tempted to get that jacket now, especially after seeing how useful it is. My only issue is that I'm trying to buy less filler items for my closet and more classic items...but still, your review was so good that I'm super tempted! As I kept scrolling and reading, I got more and more convinced!

  16. I picked up the same layered sweater this past weekend from the Anniversary sale! I love pieces that does the thinking for me so I don't have to think of a way to style it! I'm usually a small but grabbed it in the medium since I plan on layering it up during the colder months. I always love reading your reviews!

    Best,

  17. I am so glad I found your blog when I saw a tweet from Ann Taylor regarding the white jacket.
    Your reviews were so detailed to the point that I ordered both the jacket and the sweater. I was planning on catching up old posts on my me time.
    Love your blog and all the pictures you've shared with us.

    2. suprised that the sleeves actually fit for a petite person and the jacket is not petite size!
      The draw string is a bit low on the waist line, maybe I'm short.
      The sweater I don't know if I should keep as I am not comfortable to this new showing the sides (normally I see layer on bottom only)

  19. You should give another chance to Soia&Kyo, they make really nice jackets in XXS!
    I'm from Montreal, where the brand comes from, and I like wearing their coats during the winter :)

    1. Would definitely give them another try, given all the positive things I hear about them & Mackage. The fit wasn't bad, this particular style just wasn't a winner for me.

  20. I really like the Treasure and Bond jacket. I wish I "needed" that jacket. What I really need is a new heavy duty hooded long winter coat. Tried on the Trina Turk coat in size 2 regular but arms will need to be taken up at least 3 inches. It is also part of the Nordie sale.

    1. They make that Trina Turk coat in petites! Did you get to try that version? Should eliminate the need for sleeve alterations

  30. Your review of the Treasure and Bond jacket was great and it's just what I need! It seems sold out on Nordstrom. Any ideas where I can get one in XXS? If not, I'd love a chance to purchase it from you if you ever decide to re-sell it. Love your blog! Thanks for the detailed info!
