I'm in love with this coat! So glad they made this in a tall. I tend to wear a tall 4 in perfect shirts and this tall 6 fit perfectly, plenty of room for layers. I can't wear schoolboy blazers because they look terrible on my longer frame. But this looks great. It is a short coat, but not so short that it will be drafty or look silly. Sadly, it doesn't work with the maple double serge skirts. But I have plenty of navy and brown that it will work with.
