This is a lovely trench coat - good quality material, lined and showerproof (only just arrived so I haven't yet worn/tested that). Nice features such as red piping inside, inside pocket and gold metallic hanging loop. I wanted something stylish for spring/autumn rather than purely practical. My only criticism is the belt is too large - the smallest hole is about 3" too far away from where I need it. Have enquired as to whether I can swap it out but the belt looks good tied, so not the end of the world if not.. it's pricier than some other trench coats (even in the sale) but I think it's a fair price for the coat and quality.
