When it comes to winter coats, I consider myself a bit of an obsessive. Basically, folks, it ain't healthy. I have more coats than pairs of jeans. I have more coats than I could wear for every day of the week of winter. It's not that I spend excessively - it's just that I never throw a good coat away. When I invest, I invest for the long term and I keep hold of a good thing. I also can't go through the season without investing in a new addition. So sue me. Now, here we go. The newest addition to the autumn winter coats fold - the Whistles Manning Colour Block Coat (£295/$560). It's worth taking a look at, but it's also worth reminding you all that I'm 6'2. So this coat is probably meant to hit just mid calf on most women. On me, we're looking at a knee grazer. Just another issue of being vertically blessed, eh?
