Bought one last night online and wondering if anyone else has got the red / white version - what's it like on?

Personally I don't "get" the love affair with this coat - in blue or red.

It's pretty awful in my opinion and why would anyone take pains to buy something that thousands of other people have? It's become like a uniform.

Hi I bought the blue one last year and love it. The red one can be seen in action on the Thatcoat instagram page . Enjoy it - I think it's a classic now much like a camel trench is - thousands of people have one of those and yet it's still stylish xx

Thanks Bakewell, I love the look of it - will check out the pics.

I saw it in Zara on the weekend ( no knowledge about it being popular), I was drawn to it because it's so nice. Not worth the price though.

If it's the one I saw last week, I picked it up cos it looked good but it didn't suit me at all, and it came up small- I bought a skirt in a small, but I reckon I'd have needed a large in the coat. I preferred the blue to the red.

I hate that damn coat

Somebody posted one from Sainsbury's the other week which looked similar but nicer. I haven't seen either in RL though so not able to comment on quality, feel etc

This one. It's darker and has a zip though.

Best thing about this coat is that it managed to get its own Insta page grin...

Update: coat arrived yesterday... it looks TERRIBLE on me! Really tiny sizing and I'm obviously too norky for it. I look like a Beatles tribute act. Serves me right for trying to be on trend - back to Cos and Jigsaw for me!

Beatles tribute act! grin

I have it and love it!

Beware - the SBY one comes up huge... I am a 14 & needed an 8 or 10!

JustSpeakSense Fri 24-Mar-17 21:57:11

Lmao at Beatles tribute act grin

hollygolipo Fri 24-Mar-17 23:14:35

Ballet, its such a nice coat and I so wanted it to be my Spring favourite ... you must be a more comely shape than me - enjoy! Love Ringo xx

I just tried the red one on in store and I actually laughed at how much it didn't suit me. The sizing came up very small and there was too much fraying going on for me. I have the original blue one from last year and that suits me (I think/hope!)
I definitely saw a hint of Beatles tribute act - so that makes two of us now. We have Holly as Ringo, I'll be Paul so if anyone cares to join us as John and George, let us know!

I've just sent it back as it was tiny and looked like I was wearing a rug confused

JohnCheese Sat 25-Mar-17 22:33:30

Snort at Beatles tribute.
I'm with the naysayers. I can't see the reason for all the love. Horrible on me. And I saw a woman wearing it today. Oh dear. Not Good At All. V unflattering.

Johncheese Lennon - you're in the band!

Agatha I got the Sainsbury one in a 14 and wasn't really sure if it was too big or was supposed to be "swingy" or something. May have to send it back for a 12,or even 10. Is quite petty though, a change in spring from the dull beige rain mac.
