New on S&B but really need to know if this jacket is nice or am I deluded and it is just frumpsville? For a normally decisive person I just can't work it out.

Oh dear just realised padded jacket is not the best description! I mean quilted, down type things. Anyways I've worked out the link now, so opinions welcome.

I tried it on as I thought it might be good to ask for for Christmas. For me the cut around the bust is all wrong and it felt like it was squashing my boobs down towards my feet and was kind of bunched around the armpits. So might depend how well endowed you are? (Am 34D) Changing size up didn't make much difference. Very strange. Was a bit disappointed as I quite like it.

That's probably why I am unsure. I ordered it and have tried it in a million times but something's odd. Possibly the 'I don't know what to say" look on my friend's face put me off too! Think it's going back. Annoying as I do like it. Thx

If you don't love it when you try it on then I would leave it as you will end up never wearing it.

Hhhmm. Dexter I think u r right. I just don't LOVE it.

Thx for Barbour tip too CJones but I have one of those now and love it. Just fancied a change (and a hood).

Will keep looking.
