Lovely coat.. I’ve had seasalt coats before and they are fully waterproof. The pattern is really nice. However I chose the green colour instead as it suited my colouring better. The sizing is large on these coats - however it is meant to be a relaxed fit and it depends on how you want it to look. I am normally a size 12-14 and tried both the 10 and the 12 - both fitted and both had room for warm layers underneath. It was a difficult decision and a personal one. I preferred the relaxed fit of the 12 rather than the snug fit of the 10. If you look at the photos of the model wearing the green version of this coat - that is how the 12 looks on me. I didn’t want a coat that was so warm I got too hot and prefer to wear layers so I can take something off if needed. On its own I think this coat is good for autumn and mild winter days but in really cold weather it’s better with a body warmer or another smart jacket under, which is how I’m wearing it, with the coat hanging open unless it’s raining. The drawstring waist does nothing for me so I prefer it loose - it’s a nice stylish coat. The only negative I would say is the inner pocket material is flimsy. I nearly didn’t get the coat for this reason but love the coat so just hope the pockets last as long as the coat - if not they can be repaired.
