Hurry! Next Tall Jacket Back in Stock!

I’ve never been one for a practical coat. I’ll usually prioritise a nice print, a pretty cocoon shape or a sexy biker even if I have to put up with the inevitable draft. But the idea of sub-zero temperatures in NYC prompted a stressful pre-holiday shopping trip with the hubby. Here is an abridged version…

In Barbour: Can I really justify spending £350 on a coat that doesn’t absolutely fit? (Especially when I don’t have £350 t0 spend on one that actually does…)

In TK Maxx: These jackets would be just wonderful if they weren’t so ruddy shiny. And covered in buttons. With fur in really odd places.

In Blacks: Warm, yes. But just a little too practical for window-shopping outside Tiffany’s.

And in pretty much everywhere else, if I could find the right length in the sleeves and the body, then I’d lose the fit around the shoulders and waist.

I hadn’t really thought to look in Next, until its mid-season catalogue landed on my dooormat with a picture of the most beautiful navy Tall coat. (I wanted that one, but it had sold out, although I’ve grown to love it in this chocolatey colour). Having read the size reviews I ordered two in a 12 and 14, later sending back the larger because in my opinion it fits quite true-to-size.

You might have seen the above pic that I popped on Facebook while on my hols. A couple of people got in touch after to say that the coat had sold out, so I thought I’d give you a heads-up that it’s now back in stock. I’ve never had a cosy coat — one with fleece-lined pockets, a chunky wind-breaking collar and enough quilting to feel like you’re having a duvet day — and I feel much more ready to brave the British weather this year too.
