Yea or nay?

Wool / polyester blend (don't know percentages) cocoon coat. Is it nice?

It's ok. My concern would be the shape, no defined waist so these styles can make you look much larger than you are.

I like it

I've already got a couple of more 'fitted' coats, and agree that they're more slimming /flattering on most people. But I also think they're starting to look dated (and the colours aren't quite right either; black and pale blue. Grey seems more modern).

I think it's really nice, I would definitely wear it.

I like it.
It wouldnt be very warm. I have a coat in a similar unlined fabric and the wind goes straight through it.

burnished I'm in Western Australia, so it wouldn't need to be very warm smile. In fact, that's part of the problem with my other 2 long coats - purchased in the U.K. and just too thick.

I like it.

The shoes are horrendous though.

No idea what's up with the shoes - they are beyond horrendous!
