I was going to say I didnt like it but then I looked at the other m and s coats online and loads of them look bad so I think they photograph them badly so it might be worth trying it on. Otherwise I was going to second the tesco suggestion, but they are advertising a borg lined jacket so i woukd worry about being assimilated if I tried it on!
i've noticed that a lot of the ones on the M&S site are okay but not "quite" right IRL.. examples: this is a lovely colour but just looks dated if you're over 20! or this is lovely, a gorgeous colour, but cut too long, esp. for someone your height.
I dont like it..even on the model. It looks really bulky and i dislike the fur collar and tweed together. I think you could do bette tbh...but if you like it, then buy it. I know i have a lovely pair of boots that noone likes on here..but i love them so to hell!!!
1981 some lovely ideas - I think I like the navy jasper Conran one best so far - I have a similar one in black bought from warehouse a few years back and now looking rather worn - hence my search for a replacement
The beige M n S one would be great but I need something darker
I popped down to Tesco this afternoon and some nice stuff but only in v small or v large sizes and lots are out of stock on their website too sadly
The main reason I was trying to find something in M n S is I have a £35 credit voucher to spend - but am sure can use it up on something else if needed (wine even!!)
Thanks for all your helpful suggestions - I definitely don't want to look frumpy - lost a bit of weight recently though still a way to go, and am told I look much younger than I am
