On the Allsaints city monument coat?
I've fallen in love with it but it seems really expensive for what it is.

It's beautifully styled but very somber and formal. would it look as nice left open.

I don't think a coat like that would go out of fashion. It's classic, yet different and distinctive.
Think of it as a price per wear. I bought an expensive coat around 15 years ago and I still wear it.

I think it might look strange with skirts. Depends what you wear on your bottom half.

I like it & its 80% wool. Doesn't look like it would date quickly and it would go with lots.

It depends what you want it for and if you have cats /dogs ! Wool coats always seem to pick up fluff and hair and this irritates the life out of me having to sellotape them down all the time. I never find these type of coats very warm either.

Having said all that , it's a beautiful coat , I really like it .

I love this coat. Ummed and ahed about it when there was 30% off. However when I tried it on it just didn't fall right over my ample bosom. Because I also have broad shoulders it was less chic more 'friar Tuck'. So maybe worth trying on at that price??

I've tried it on a few times, not been in stock in my size though but I've just found one. I'm buying it!!

30% off! I didn't realise Allsaints ever did codes :-(

I love it!! I feel quite.... Dramatic in it though!

Dramatic is good grin I'm on maternity leave at the mo and would love to feel dramatic again grin

They always do an event around Black Friday and I guess maybe some time over Easter? I bought my fave ever bag that way. One thing I will say for Allsaints in IME quality is 👌
