Looking for a Single Breasted Smart coat in Grey or Camel - can anyone help?
The zara one have linked to is nice. I bought it but it was too jig so has gone back, alas (for some reason they don't do exchanges online). Dithering about whether to buy in a smaller size. Since age 18, I have been an 'M' in zara. Now, after DC3 and still with a bit of extra padding, the 'M' is too big (a reefer coat I bought from zara also went back). As much as I'd like to think it's because I'm so slim, I think this season's sizing runs big.
Agree about the Zara one, it's nice but it comes up really really big, I'm a size 12 & the medium was absolutely massive. They didn't have a S in the shop so I left it. I think even if it had fitted I would have returned it as I did click & collect & it came folded up in a box, not hanging. The creases wouldn't have come out. I recommend the Zara one but I would try instore for size & to avoid your coat arriving all crumpled.
I agree the Zara one comes up slightly big. Mine fits well though but I've had to take up the sleeves - just wonder webbed it! I had to order mine online as it was sold out instore and i can't remember if it was creased. It's fine now anyway!
I think about right , I got a 12 and I'm a size 10 with a big bum so I didn't want it to be tight .. Topshop is very small anyways and I don't really buy clothes in there normally , I just saw this one as I was passing the other day.. Apparently the sleeves are short which isn't a problem for me but it might be if you are tall.. It's a great coat for £59 .. I much prefer a zip to buttons and it makes it much more stylish .
The Zara coat is a winner! I ordered the S and the M after reading comments above, think I'll keep the M. The S is a better fit round the body but just a bit too tight across my shoulders (I'm 5ft9ins and probably a 10/12 on top)
The M could possibly do with being taken in under the arms to make it a bit more fitted but it'll do me for now
