M&S Collection Dogtooth Coat with Wool
LOVE THIS COAT, WELL DONE M & S, LOVELY HAD SEEN THIS BUT WHEN I WENT TO BUY IT COULDN'T FIND IT. THEN I SPOTTED THE LAST ONE ON THE INTERNET AND ORDERED IT VERY PLEASED TO HAVE FOUND IT ESPECIALLY AS IT WAS REDUCED.

What a disappointment.
This is a beautiful heavy weight coat that I was so looking forward to wearing for years to come...however, the yarn fluffed up and bobbled so badly within the first few outings that I have (regretfully) returned it. It got so bad that I was embarrassed to wear it & it certainly wouldn't improve with time! I am so disappointed as it l thought it was going to be my dream coat.
The sizing, value for money & style were all perfect. Pity the material is fundamentally flawed! Something you might like to be aware of if you're considering purchase.

Heavy winter coat.
Good quality coat. It is large fitting and am going to go for a smaller size.

Heavy, Durable, Fashionable Winter coat
I bought this with a 20% voucher; I had been eying it up previously but though the price tag a tad too steep, I love hound/dog tooth print so this had to be mine.
There is a great weight to the coat that will definitely keep me warm in the cold, dark days to come. It has an enlarged collar and slightly large cut which is great to fit a jumper under. I am a size 14 but usually have to go up a size for coats with M&S to make sure it fits my arms and can allow another layer for when it gets cold but this coat in a 14 fits with extra room for wooly layers later in the season.
The only down side I have if I had to pick one is I'm not keen on the shiny, black, plastic, over-sized buttons. That's the only thing that cheapens the coat a little.
It is made with wool, which I always like in a coat. It's a mid length coat coming to about mid thigh on me and I'm 5' 6". With luscious dusk pink lining this coat is one I will wear past this year, it's a keeper.
