I've been eyeing up this jacket for a while and finally gave in now the Shetland brown was back in stock. Gives a very 1940s look, good quality and not itchy at all. Good length too in the body and sleeves even though I'm tall (5ft 10). I sized up to allow a thicker cardi and long sleeve blouse to be worn underneath and its perfect.
Such a great quality well tailored jacket and looks great with everything. Even though it’s made in wool it is not itchy at all. Colour is fabulous too and perfect fit.
