It doesn't look much on their awful website, but it ticks a few boxes for practicality (inside pocket, cuffs, zip, hood, okayish wool content) and I usually like their look. I can't get to a store any time soon to look at it so wondered if anyone had seen it in real life? Is it any good or as dull as it looks online?
Thanks guys. I've ordered it on Noddy's recommendation and will report back.
I really wish they would sort the photos on their website out. A couple of it on an actual person would be helpful. And why, on the odd occasion when they do put them on a model, do they make them pose all stiff, frowny and miserable?
My coat just arrived and I LOVE it. It's absolutely spot on. Was worried about sizing as I'm different top and bottom but went for the larger size to accommodate jumpers and it hangs beautifully, without looking bulky. They really do need to sort out their website - it doesn't do it justice.
Hoop, on me the cuffs make the sleeves full length, but I am a size(ish) smaller on my top half and went for the bigger size. If I'd sized down they would have been shorter I think and it would have been, ahem, "snug" on my voluminous derrière when zipped. I didn't get the mittens but they've gone on the Christmas list I'm making for DH .
justasecond I don't mind £6 for a coat or several items but it does put me buying, say, a top. I'm quite near a shop but it's not somewhere I have any other reason to go to or past so when I'm busy I can't justify a trip there IYSWIM. If you need to return stuff it's really slow and confusing because they do a euro conversion. Maybe we should be lobbying them for a better website/more stores...
