Mine arrived today but I'm not sure I like it enough. Is it really warm enough that I will happily forego style for substance when winter hits? I spend a fair amount of time in cold sea breezes in winter and my knees suffer if they are cold. I hate being cold. I feel cold easily, too...
I pulled in the drawstring but I still look massive (I'm a 10-12 so got a small).
Do you mean the big down coats? If so they really are very, very much warmer than any wool coats. Mine might look huge but it made winter commuting bearable last year, had been miserable the year before. struggled to take it off when spring came! Could wear thin blouses under it and still be warm so saved money on winter work clothes too!
Duck, that's what I'm hoping - to not have to wear loads underneath the coat. It's about time I had a coat that will allow me to stay glam beneath the outer layer. Otherwise, I have always ended up with a thick cardigan over thinner (nice) top. It would be good to be able to dispense with a layer.
Is this the one currently on sale and with the added discount comes in at £80-something? I've been wanting a coat so this thread prompted me to Google. It looks like the same coat is both in the sale at this discount and again in the non sale at full price (although I guess the discount would still apply).
It's confusing because it certainly looks like the same coat but nearly half price. Surely their own website wouldn't offer the same coat at 2 different prices. Maybe they want to sell a section/portion of the stock for some reason.
I have a couple of LE down coats. In my longer one, I can walk to the office in Finland when its -14'C and windy with just my normal work dress underneath which is fabulous. They might be a bit bulky, but the cosiness is wonderful
