Autograph Luxury Wool Rich Long Belted Trench Coat with Angora
I've had so many compliments since wearing this coat.
My only criticism is that the cotton tag (saying made with Italian cotton) resulted in two small holes being left where I'd snipped it off the cuff. The manufacturers used as much black cotton you would use applying a button. A simple tack would've been more suitable.

Not for the slim-waisted
Gorgeous quality fabric, light, soft and warm but let down by the fit - peculiar sizing as the shoulders and hips were fine but it was like a boat round the waist- I have a normal figure but would have needed to alter this completely and move the buttons to have the size 12 fit me at all round the middle as there were acres of loose fabric to pull in and it just looked bulky. You can pull this in with the belt of course, but it just didn't feel right, especially when spending so much money.

Not what I hoped for...
I had high hopes for this coat as I avoid anything black and was after something longer than mid-calf. It is lovely and the angora gives it a rich feel but.... It was not as long as it looks on the model and had a very mass-produced look and feel which just did not warrant the high price. If it was retailing closer to £150 it would be perfect. It had too many panels of material and a cheap lining. Not sure the epaulettes work, either. Despite getting this with a 20% off promo, I sent it back and have just bought a much better quality coat for around £100 less.
