I purchased this coat as soon as I saw it on the website, and immediately fell in love with the fit and style. A winter coat that allows me to have a waist? Magic! And the navy colour is lovely, much nicer than black.
Unfortunately, after a few weeks of intermittent real-world wear in October, its flaws are obvious: the material is badly bobbled all over, with the worst damage on the arms and sides. One button has already come 90% undone. It looks like it's been through the wars, rather than a few casual strolls around town. I shudder to think what it will look like at the end of the winter, if it lasts that long.
I appreciate that Bravissimo put extra work into cutting their patterns for fuller busts, but the price here simply does not reflect the quality.
