The Curated Teddy Coat Review

Curated Teddy Jacket Review

Though it still feels like summer, the leaves are starting to turn and colder temps are just around the corner. I’m a bit late in joining the teddy coat train, but with WFH continuing for the foreseeable future I needed an ‘elevated’ blanket to wear during cold winter days (the insulation in my home is terrible). 

If you’ve read my other Curated review, you know I’m a fan of the brand. While the Curated teddy coat has been out for several months, I couldn’t find any reviews online – so I decided to bite the bullet and order one for myself. I hope you find this review helpful!

I waffled between the shorter Teddy Jacket and the longer Teddy Coat, especially since the latter is only $20 more. Ultimately, our California winters don’t get that cold, so I opted for the shorter Modern Teddy Jacket in white for $275. They also have a Classic style (doesn’t come in white) that has an oversized notch lapel that more closely resembles the Max Mara Teddy Bear.

Material

Like their other pieces, the Teddy is made of quality materials – 100% wool on the exterior, and 100% silk lining. While the wool is soft, it is not bathrobe-y soft like polyester versions of this style. It feels more like… the shearling lining of a pair of UGG boots, if that makes sense. Not the most glamorous analogy, but it is still plush and very warm. The silk lining has a smooth, almost slippery, handfeel, and is more substantial than regular silk crepe de chine. 

I can’t recall the exact reasoning for this (something to do with COVID-19 and shipping times), but this jacket was shipped vacuum sealed in a bag vs. in a box. After receiving it, I laid it out on the floor for a day so it could get its ‘floof’ back. I also steamed it once, quickly. However, I need to give it another steam since it’s still wrinkled – nothing that a good steam can’t fix!

Fit & Sizing

I was looking for a ‘relaxed’ fit – not too tight, not too oversized. Especially since this is a ‘modern’ style that isn’t meant to be as oversized as the Max Mara teddy. I decided to go with X-Small, the same size I wear in my Classic Coat (reviewed here). It fits perfectly – for reference, I am 5’4” and typically a size 2 / 26. I have longer than normal arms for my height, and the sleeves are a good length on me.

Final Verdict

Final Verdict

Overall, I think the Curated’s line-up of teddy coats, both Classic and Modern, are a great value for the quality they provide. If you are in the market for a well-made, wool coat that won’t break the bank, this is the coat for you!
