Winter Coat - New Look

Sunday, October 19, 2014

I can't believe how cold it's been lately. I know it's autumn but was it this cold at this time last year? My Time Hop app hasn't had many weather related posts so I can't tell. 

I went to New Look in Denton last week and spotted this coat. It was £59.99 and it was the first winter coat i've tried on this side of this year so didn't buy it.

While we were in a cafe later on I checked my email and I'd had an email from New Look with a 20% discount code so I ordered it. 

I paid £47.99 and as it was over £45 I got free standard delivery. Even more impressive was that it arrived the day after. I ordered 3pm Sunday and it arrived 11am Monday.


I've worn it everyday since I got it and it's lovely and snuggly. I thought the fur round the hood was detachable but it isn't.

I also like that it has pully ties on the inside rather than on the outside.

My only really issue and I doubt it'll be a problem is the amount of fasteners this is round the neck.

My pictures might not show it clearly. I'll talk you through it.
Zip
Zip cover press stud
There is also a collar cover that is a couple of inches wide that press stud fastens
When the hood is up there is also a press stud fastener to keep it up.

This means even when the coat is open the neck area is a bit bulky. I did fasten them all up when I got caught in the rain and it was a bit claustrophobic but it did keep the hood in place.


I've been trying not to look at coat as you always find a nicer one once you've made that commitment and purchased one but I haven't seen one I like better.
