I don't want to risk too much aggro. I'm sure those in relationships understand. It's like money laundering, you need to keep it all moving to avoid the authorities catching on aka your bird putting two and two together. And figurine, you're right and if I was shopping to the point that I couldn't afford a flat then I'd care but I'm not so I don't Roll Eyes

I prefer the down mollino, just as an object. Not saying the shearling isn't nice(sure it is) but it doesn't look that good on you in your pic imo. It looks like it's wearing you rather than you wearing it.

My only complaint is the Michelin Man effect on the arms but I imagine that would settle down with wear

I do think the Mollino fits a lot better. No elbow bulge and is just perfect with a mid-weight knit under. At the moment leaning towards backing the shearling. The pic doesn't show how bad the bulging is

I don't think the deckhand can go. Do you know how long it took to even find one in my size in a colour way other than black! A long time!

depends how much you paid for it really, if you got it cheap keep it. Just work out if you can pass it on without losing much.

I'm semi decided now. For the money it cost, I have to insist on 100% perfect fit. Cheers lads

They the wool or brushed cotton shralp? They've slimmed down the fit on those compared to the sateen ones.
