Military style coat - buy now or wait till next year?

I've decided I would like a new smart coat and I really like the double breasted military style.

The coat season is coming to an end so I'm not sure whether to see if I can get a sale bargain or wait till early next autumn.

I like the Hobbs Apperley coat but it's pretty much sold out. There is also one in Austin Reed which is in the sale.

Any suggestions? I am a top heavy size 12.

I would buy it now. Why wait when you can enjoy your lovely coat. Live in the moment smile

I have also found the Hobbs Apperley coat on a website which is showing in stock. It won't let me post the link but it's, anyone heard of them?

I have a single breasted grey coat a bit like that which I've had a few years. It always looks on trend every year as military always seems to be a key look and yes winter lasts for ages yet. Buy it! grin

I like the asymmetric collar detail on the Austin reed coat- and the touch of cashmere, so that's the one of those I think I would go for.
I like. Hobbs generally, and I think I've seen the Apperley- it's quite a dark brown?? I like the style and that it's pure wool but IIRC it felt quite coarse- depends whether you mind that? It would probably feel a little scratchy for me which is why I would choose the AR one
