ROMAN ROAD MOLESKIN COAT
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.

Amazing Winter coat!!
I had my eye on this coat until the weather turned cooler! It didn't dissappoint. The fit was great, am a size 10 and the size 10 fitted perfectly, giving me room enough for a warm sweater underneath too. The quality is what you would expect with the price, the lining is exquisite, the collar is very Downton Abbey, and the cut looks expensive. Looks great with skinny jeans and boots, and most of all is very warm. I bought the green one, and it is so flattering on my fair colouring and just feels great to have a coat that isn't black, grey or navy for a change. If you buy one coat this winter, get this one, you will feel special every time you put it on.
