It's a little larger & bulkier than expected, & oddly smelled of cigarette smoke when opened. The color & materials are great & on wearing it (after several days of airing out), it performed exactly as I hoped - an attractive but warm & comfy garment for supper at the local pub & similar excursions.
Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry to hear you are not fully satisfied with your recent purchased. The smell may have been the Lanolin (a natural substance found on wool). Our advice is indeed to wash and air the garment out so we are glad that this worked for you. Once again , we thank you for your comments and we do hope you enjoy wearing your garments!
