So 23yrs ago as a student I spent a £100 of my maintenance grant on a long blue coat from French Connection. The coat was worth every penny and has lasted the test of time. It looks as good today as it did then, goes as easily with a suit as it does with jeans.
Move forward to this last couple of weeks where the temp has dropped, I’m freezing my nut off and can’t stay warm. It’s time to treat myself to a new “warm” coat. You would think that would be pretty easy… but not the case! It took 2 days finally culminating with a 3 hour stint at Bluewater before finally settling on a parka from O’Neil!. Cost me a fortune, but you get what you pay for!
