Dressing the man

Now, bear with me: the reason I sauntered over to the online men’s department at Zara is the fact that my youngest, now thirteen years old, has completely ignored my plea to stop growing already and is now therefore in need of his first winter coat in an actual grown up size. And with all the future growing in mind buying at a lower price point is advised (as opposed to my eldest, now sixteen, who has a penchant for Gucci-and-Armani-but-on-sale with the occasional Nike and Airforce thrown in and such but at least he does not grow out of it in a minute).

Stop me

Ages ago I owned a white wool coat, I believe from Topshop. It was a very structured minimal design, with a zipper, and I looked ever so smart in it. I really loved that coat. The downside was of course that it was white and even the slightest of stains or marks stood out on it like a sore thumb. And unless you have a huge dry cleaner budget that alone makes a coat like that very impractical.
