I wanted a longer lighter Spring to Autumn coat and had my eye on this for a long time. But I knew I wouldn't be able to live with the mis-matched pattern at the front. When it was reduced to a price I couldn't resist I decided to give it a try. Hallelujah the one I received had a perfectly lined up pattern! (You do yourself a disservice LE showing an illustration mis-matched) I love the neat front, no zips, just nice buttons over poppers . This gives it a smart finish as well as no struggling with zips. It's as light as a feather but has plenty of warmth and the sleeve length and fit are perfect for my regular size (16). Like a previous reviewer I would have preferred a bit of shape at the waist, but everything else is perfect.
