for occasions that won’t happen anytime soon.
Excuse the serious face and rather strange pose lol! Turns out the ones where I’m smiling are either wobbly or very juvenile-looking. I also wanted to show you the anorak under different angles. There was no inbetween, but now you also understand while this blog could have never been a full-blown fashion blog 😉
For size reference, I’m 5’1 (155 cm) and wearing the size S. I asked Braintree for advice, since I was hesitating between xs and s, and they recommended me to size up if I liked wearing layers, which I definitely do, so I ordered S. And rightfully so: XS would have been too tight on the arms and shoulders. S is really roomy and the inner waist coat falls a tad longer down my body than shown on the model which I don’t mind.
While this is more of a mid-season product, I was surprised by how warm it keeps. I could wear a simple shirt or light jumper underneath it without a problem until November. It feels very cosy and for outdoorsy people, this is an awesome clothing piece. If you enjoy light and more tight-fitting clothes this might not be your cup of tea, but if you’re looking for a versatile water-proof and windproof coat this one is just awesome. Under pouring rain, I don’t look like a wet dog anymore, the fit keeps me warm and protected.
