As a lover of muted tones, I realise this coat is a bit of an outlier. The toffee tone is a tad sharper than what you would normally see on me and adds a big pop of colour to any outfit! But I wanted to branch out from my usual colour palette while still adhering to my style ethos – and I’m so glad I did. Not only does it add some fun with its cheery colour, the coat pairs so well with the existing neutrals in my wardrobe while making a bit of a statement.
During the cooler months, I’ve managed to style this coat in corporate looks for the office as well as casual looks since being stationed at home.
Aside from the colour, one of the main features that drew me to this coat is the fact that it’s made from recycled fibres (62% recycled wool, 38% recycled nylon). Despite this, the coat has a soft and premium feel. It’s very well made featuring a weighty (but not heavy) wool-mix.
Style-wise, it doesn’t get more classic than this. It’s a boxy double-breasted number with a notched collar and front flap pockets for that added bit of detail. As for sizing, given it’s an oversized fit, I sized down to a size 0. It fits me really well with enough room to layer a chunky knit during the dead of winter. (For reference, I’m usually a size 2 in Everlane pieces and I usually take an Australian size 8 in clothing.) Before the coat arrived, I was apprehensive about the sleeve length, given I’m petite (5’2″/158cm). The sleeves are a tad long, but I’m content with folding the sleeves under and I find it’s not noticeable when worn. I may eventually pay a visit to my tailor but it’s not high on my priority list as I’ve managed to wear the coat for the best part of 12 months.

The charcoal coat has been on my radar and is a wardrobe gap that I’m looking to fill. I’ve seen a few of my favourite bloggers wear this version and it looks fantastic.
