Well, dear reader, I feel compelled to do a post on my coat. A few of you have commented favourably on IG, thank you.
This tweed was bought from Cousins here The style of coat is The Brompton and the tweed is Blue Aztec here . This coat has a fuchsia lining.
The company bring out a few new tweeds each year. They have a variety of coat designs the Burghley, the Knightsbridge, the Picadilly, the Trench, among others, and they apply the tweeds to those basic coat templates.
The Brompton that I have is a good length for a petite like me of 5 foot and a pipsqueak. It's also a great length for trousers and jeans. You can see its falling to just below my knee. Excuse the wet hair. I was off to catch my train to work.
Other designs are longer or less fitted. My coat is not a warm winter coat. I would say jacket weight and it needs layering on cooler days. As the Brompton is fitted there isn't much room for layering so mine is worn autumn and spring rather than mid-winter.
Would I buy another one? Yes. I'd like to get another tweed in a button design slightly looser so I could layer thick jumpers under. Aaaand those jackets are so yuuuum. I feel my savings being depleted as I type.
