I absolutely love this coat, the purple looks fun without being too loud, so perfect for walking to work this cold cold winter. The one major flaw that I wish I had noticed in the shop or I would never have purchased this coat are the velcro enclosures. Why are companies still using velcro? It looks cheap and sticks to everything! I have already ruined two knit scarves and a sweater from getting caught in the velcro. I have since covered them up with felt, but it looks a bit ridiculous. If you are ok with velcro then this coat is perfect for you.
