ROMAN ROAD MOLESKIN COAT
I really love the style of this coat and can't wait to wear it. It is slightly roomy but this means I will be able to wear with jumpers in the colder months.
I bought my coat in store and it doesn't have the fishy smell other reviewers have referred to. Material is really soft.
Can be worn both smart & casual.

I ordered the blue version of this coat. The fabric is quite thick so will be suitable for the colder weather. I also loved the the dots on the fabric.
I ordered my usual size and it fitted well.
Mine didn't smell of fish either.
Very pleased. Looking forward to wearing it.

Seduced me unexpectedly!
I tried on this coat in blue, in store, and wasn't keen on the 'dottiness' of the fabric surface. However, I ordered the green version, as close examination of the website photos showed a less freckled surface. So it proved to be - the fabric of the green version is a more solid colour. Like some previous reviewers, I was slightly dubious about the shape to begin with but despite not fitting closely around the middle, it looked great, especially worn open with the collar up, as the lapels are wide.
It's a warm coat, made more so by the wide overlap of the double-breasted front. I'm a 14-16 and the 14 fitted well, with enough room to wear a lightweight jumper underneath. Mine didn't smell of fish at all, like some of the previous reviewers', but the lapels were very creased. A steam iron and cloth soon sorted it out, though. I'm very pleased I ordered it, as I so nearly didn't and would have missed out on a brilliant new addition to my winter wardrobe.
