“ Brand: Next / Mens / Jacket „
Recently my wife started to shop in Next and opened an account with them online so as the winter was drawing in and I live in Scotland I had decided to see if I could find a nice warm coat from them as I could put it on my wifes account. Looking through their jackets I came across a nice signature piece which is a nice and simple grey italian wool funnel jacket and decided to order it to take a look.
The jacket arrived within the week and after opening the plastic wrap the first thing I noted on this was that it is a weighty piece of clothing but this was exactly what I was looking for as I wanted something that was going to be warm. The jacket is very well made with the materials stated on the website as (72% virgin wool 20% nylon 8% cashmere. Upper body lining 47% polyester 34% wool 11% acrylic 6% nylon 2% other fibres. Lower body lining 65% polyester 35% cotton. Sleeve lining 100% polyester). This to me means very little so I will say that the wool feels like a great quality and looks like it too.
The jacket is as I said previously a simple design but has plenty of pockets with 7 on the outside area alone making it perfect for your gloves, scarf, mobile, ipod and more. The jacket has a full length zip and buttons so that you can stop the wind from cutting through you and I have used this on many a cold day and found it really does keep you warm and dry whilst also managing to look very stylish (I have had loads of comments on this).
So what is the drawback? The jacket does cost £95 which is a high price to be paid but the quality is excellent and it feels like a piece that is made to last and with the design and simple stylish look it is not one that will go out of fashion.
- Well made jacket
- Simple yet stylish design
- Loads of pockets
- Keeps you very warm and cuts out windchill greatly
- Weighty piece
- Expensive but you are getting what you pay for
This is an excellent jacket that offer up great style and is a piece I would highly recommend.
