i dont understand this. given the choices and availability of so many different designers why would you buy something that wasent your first choice? in other words, why are you going to buy something that you dont love? its not like they only made a dozen jackets in some off size.
its clothing not a loved one ... no need to settle.
Besides Herno, Mackintosh is my favourite brand for this type of coat. I have the older version of this coat and dot not wear it for work because it's green.
I went to TBS for SNS Herning or another Nanamica coat. I have enough basics and really like exploring new brands (for me).
