First one wasn't well made.
on 29 October 2014
The fit was just right (size L and I'm a 43 inch chest). Fabric warm and fairly heavy, but quite felt-like. Not as dense or smooth as some similar, albeit much more expensive, coats I have seen in the shops. I would tend to disagree with some other reviewers who say the quality is as good as coats costing 2 or 3 times as much - I think the quality actually reflects the price, although if you can get one without defects (which I didn't) it is not bad value.
In my case the cut was mostly good, but there were two defects:
1. Several of the buttons were not level with each other or with the button holes.
2. There was excess fabric over the right shoulder, which tended to bunch up and look unsightly when worn.
Because of the defects, I returned the coat for a refund, but I will reorder because I like the style of the coat.
I did reorder, but that coat suffered the same issue with misaligned buttons. It also shed black dye over anything that the fabric touched (hands, shirt collar etc.). The supplier was helpful and appeared to feel that it was an isolated issue - perhaps a bad batch from their supplier; and in view of the good reviews by others here, that seems plausible. I returned the replacement coat, and the supplier refunded the purchase price plus both lots of return postage.
