ROMAN ROAD MOLESKIN COAT
Bought on mixed reviews
I bought this on sale for a bargain price. I read the following things -
- It smells funny
- It is a big fit
- It is easily creased
I bought it anyway and have found the following:
- Mine did not smell at all!
- The fit is perfect on me - I am a 12. The waist is a loose fit, but that is the style of the coat - I suspect people reviewing this expecting a tight fitting coat are disappointed, but it fits as I thought it would and is flattering and great over a pair of skinnys and boots - a good look. The colour is also excellent and just what I wanted - great quality too.
- It does crease a bit, but I hung mine up in the shower room for a few days and it is perfect now. No further issued!
Very pleased and I would recommend this.

I love this coat but it's true it smells of fish!
I absolutely love this coat and am pleased with it in every way except that it smells enough of fish to put me off wearing it in public! I have tried washing and airing it, but this only appears to have made the smell worse! I think it's something in the lining...
Any advice as to how to get rid of the smell would be gratefully received! Am gonna try washing it with essential oil and bicarb next. Wish me luck!

Lovely quality but terrible fit
The material this coat is made of feels like good quality and the lining is lovely. I was just really disappointed when I put it on because, despite fitting really well on the top, it flares out at the back it a very unflattering way. Maybe it'd not do this on everyone, but it just didn't seem to fall the way it should, with some puckering of the material at the bottom.
