I lost 80 lbs and realized I had no coat to wear outside for anything colder than 40 degrees. I love this coat because it's long and will cover my legs in the very cold weather. Black always works for me with my "go to" coat. The attached (or can be removed) hood works wonders to not mess up my hair, but keeps the cold wind & snow off. I didn't notice in the description but was please to find it had a zip out liner that extends the usefulness of this classic trench. The liner is a simple black plaid. The matching black buttons make it feel dressier. I live in Colorado and this will be my winter coat except for playing in the snow days. Delivery was quick too!
