Made from: RECYCLED WOOL!
'Austen' is a gorgeous long coat - we wanted to keep you warm this winter, whilst at the same time recycling a fabric that has a lot of amazing sustainable qualities.
Austen has 2 large side pockets to keep your hands warm, 3 large wooden buttons, a contrasting Navy blue lining. Made from 65% Recycled wool & 35% other recycled fibres. Ankle grazer length, with a beautiful vintage collar!
How is it made?
Recycling wool is a pretty easy process, the results are also beautiful, they give the garment a unique look and texture that is just stunning!
Recycled wool is reclaimed from textile waste and unwanted or discarded garments. ... The mill is able to mix already-dyed fibres to create colour, rather than shearing new wool and treating and dyeing the fibres. The mill will sort old garments into similar colours and spin a new fabric using these, this means that each new garment has character, with small speckles of different shades of colour, creating a product with character.

XS : Size 4-6 S : Size 6-8 M : Size 10-12 L : Size 14-16 XL : Size 18-20
I wanted to buy this coat for months and months but with the strong pound it was rather expensive in euros. A few weeks back they were reduced and I had to order! Size M was no longer in stock, so I measured up for Size S (6-8) as I‘m normally a 10 (W28, L32 in Addisons, Tall S in Original Dungarees) scared it would maybe not fit. It fits like a glove though! I can even comfortably wear a thick jumper underneath.
Only drawback: the bottom of the coat was very creased, I‘m going to have to iron it very carefully with a tea towel in between.
'Austen' Recycled Wool Tailored Coat in Mustard
Fab coat and warmer than I had expected, it is VERY long though, I am 5'5 and got my coat taken up a week after buying!
Love this coat but it is definitely a greener yellow than the pictures suggest, I was hoping for that warm orangey-yellow look. Also, I'm about 5'3 and this coat hits at my ankles which is a touch longer than I would have liked (i got the small). Despite this, it fits everywhere else perfectly and is nicely made.
I love this coat! It’s a really nice fit and a great length. It goes with everything! Thanks.
