Pros and Cons
I have been looking for a winter parka coat and based on reviews ordered this in my usual size 14.
Pros: fantastic lining (tartan & polka dot) which is gorgeous, very well made, warm, detachable hood and detachable fur (I preferred it when taking the fur off as the hood is still fleece lined so nice and warm). Lovely dark navy colour.
Cons: Not really long enough for me (5ft 8in), waxy feel to material made it a bit stiff in my opinion. Would have preferred side entry to pockets as I find sometimes stitched on pockets rip from continued use but the main reason this is a no for me is the adjustable cord around the waist which was a little too high for me but also the excess tie did not hang right at the front and seemed too obvious and in the way!
Overall this jacket isn't for me so has been returned as I can't keep it just because I love the lining!!!

Lovely autumn jacket
Really nice, warm but not too heavy jacket. Lovely colour and almost a waxy feel to it. Very smart and perfect for autumn. The draw string is a little high on the waist but I have that problem on a lot of things.

I recieved this today and absolutely love it, so much so that I am now looking forward to the cold weather. It looks so good on and is lovely and cosy. I am 5.2 and more often than not coats are too long and I'm sure it would look great on a taller person too. Love this!
