It's another coat one - sorry! I am still looking for the ideal coat to replace my knackered 10yo Noa Noa Oxford. I know I'll never find anything that hits all the marks the way it does, but the main issue is hoods. Apparently I have a massive head as all coats I try on barely cover it, and definitely don't if my hair is in its usual high pony style.
Can anyone recommend a longish coat with a large hood that stays up, that also goes in a bit at the waist? Extra bonus points for deep pockets, an interesting pattern and, the holy grail, a detachable lining. Prefer grey, olive green, taupe but not a dealbreaker.
I have a Didriksons Lina which has a massive hood (can be cinched back so you can actually see). It's the warmest coat I've ever owned, has loads of pockets and can be drawn in at the waist. No detachable lining though. I love it.
