I've owned this coat for a number of years now - it was handed down to me from my mother (who has exceptional taste, I must say!). The last time I wore it on the blog, it was extremely oversized and a tad shapeless, as many vintage items tend to be. For a while, I was content to leave it that way, but I finally decided to have it altered by Jarv's excellent tailor last month, and it's almost like having a brand new coat. We kept the length and general size but brought it in at the waist, pleating it at the back, and bringing the sleeves in just a little.

We shot these during our 3 year anniversary getaway at the Four Seasons Hampshire estate (I'll show you more of that, later!), as the sun was beginning to go down. At 4pm. Typical British winter.
