I’ve always wanted a dark green winter coat, and now I finally have one!*
Though, unfortunately it doesn’t quite fit me *super sad face*. It’s a really beautiful coat, thick and warm with a removable furry trim around the hood. I went for a size small, which was really my own silly fault, but this was only because Gamiss were out of bigger sizes. I was foolish to think it would fit me as clothing from China nearly always comes up too small on me. It’s mainly tight around the shoulders and under the armpits. It’s not the type of coat I could wear undone all the time. The sleeves are also on the short side for my long limbs. The toggles feel strong and secure and I love the deep pockets. It’s also great that the furry trim can be removed.
Here’s my work colleague Donna whose got a smaller frame compared to me.
At 5”3 the length of the coat and sleeves are a much better fit on Donna (I’m around 5”9). However, she said it was still a little tight around the shoulders and under the armpits for her too. When it comes to reordering this coat, I’ll definitely go for a size L.
* I was sent this coat for free, but rest assured, all words and opinions are my own 🙂
