it doesn't look as shiny in other pics and i'm hoping it's not bad irl, but yeah. waxed and feather down though. there's usually a cos code (or was last year) just before xmas so i'm a little tempted.

is 24oz melton wool enough for a varsity jacket to get through a mild winter?

Tried it on today. Not a bad fit, reasonably slim and short, but nowhere near worth the money.

it'll definitely keep you warm. the weather can be all over the place in the UK though, so i've always stayed away from spending major $$$ on something goose or feather down, purely because you never know if you'll wear it everyday for weeks on the trot because it gets to about -5 (like now), or the temperature hovers at around 7 and you sweat buckets. if you really fancy it maybe wait for a discount.

Very true, wore my Ten C peacoat last weekend with the shearling liner and was sweating my arse off for most of the day. Really appreciated it when the temp. dropped later on though.

Those jeans look decent.

I know this is a far cry from pea coats etc but stumbled across this and I am thinking about getting it for winter. Never bought from the brand so unsure on quality in relation to price. Opinions and has anyone got any of their stuff?
