...and have had 3 compliments already today!

I LOVE it. Its totally impractical for when it gets really cold, of course as the neck is so exposed I'll have to always wear a scarf but good for autmn/spring I think.

Glad i bought it in the shop rather than online though as the 'Boiled wool' description is enough to put anyone off!

it´s nice !

Only Top Shop could sell 75% polyester as "wool" though!Still, that means it won´t get ruined when wet.

Great cut.

Yes but it's not exactly a "coat" is it..?

V.flattering for a large tum like mine. Tres slimming. I had to get a size 14 though! (usually a 12).

Depends what your definition of a coat is I suppose. I am not too fussy about the coat/jacket distinction myself.

What are the requisite elements of a coat then? Its something to wear over your other clothes!

Mutt that is such a coincidence! I do have a 'best' winter coat which has arse-covering properties but its so big and heavy its a bit much for every day.
