CLASSIC BLACK WOOL BLEND OVERCOAT
The earlier reviews are correct: there are two different versions of this coat. The version I tried on at the 5th ave store in NYC was made with thick wool and it was worth the price. But the version I bought online just arrived and it's an altogether different coat. The wool is so thin that it always looks wrinkled and the black plastic buttons look cheap. Just FYI...

I am unsure about previous comments about this coat being 'thin' as I purchased this about a month ago and I don't find it to be thin at all. It may seem as though the pockets are unable to be used however the sewing just needs to be cut. I am around 5'10" and I wear a small for anyone who is unsure about sizing. I did try an extra small but it was too tight across the chest. I feel that it may be a little long but this isn't annoying, just something I noticed due to how my hands sink quite far when in the pockets. As I said. this isn't really troublesome i just wanted to note it. It is quite expensive but I feel that it is worth it. If you compare it to coats like this produced by other companies it is of similar pricing. It is insulating and does keep you warm although I do recommend a scarf because as you can probably see, it doesn't cover the neck. The quality of the coat is great. I can't complain about anything and I haven't noticed any problems regarding the quality. This coat goes with anything and i honestly love it. I wear it with black jeans and black shoes and it looks great. I would recommend this to anyone.

Pockets and Quality
Have read previous comments and i am adding a few points, there are two coats that are very similar and both cost the same amount, as stated one is really thin and poor material and the other is a much better quality, i tried both on today in topman in Oxford street and purchased the better quality one. Please note both pockets are stitched up tight which i was surprised at and made me believe that there was no usable pockets to this coat but u need to cut stitching to access pockets. My advice is to go to a store and not purchase on line as u may buy the wrong coat

2nd batch are terrible quality
I tried this coat on last month and it was a very high quality, thick and warm coat. After I got paid I tried to order it to find it was out of stock. I was overjoyed when I saw that they had some new ones in with 30% off on Black Friday. The coat I received is thin and ill-fitting, it feels like felt and is nothing like the coat I tried on. I compared it to the grey check version of the coat my brother bought and it is unreal how much worse the quality of the second batch is.
