Lovely, but lightweight and not thick enough to be a winter coat
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 14 November 2019
I love the style and fit of this coat, but it’s definitely not warm enough as a winter coat even though it’s down filled - hence 3 stars. If it had been warm it would have received 5 stars. It’s simply a fashion statement. It’s too thin to be warm, there can’t be much down in there. I wore it this morning in 0 degrees, and I had on a long sleeved thermal vest, 2 long sleeved tops and a fleece jacket with the coat on top, and alas I was still cold. I’ve kept it because it’s a lovely coat (though way too expensive for something that’s just a lightweight coat), but the search goes on for a proper, warm winter coat.
It’s true to size, I bought a size 10 and I am a size 10. There’s room for a thick jumper underneath (which you’ll need if wearing the coat in the winter!).
