Adidas by Stella McCartney deep matte purple with fun neon/chartreuse lining, Stella screenprint within. This is a technical, weatherproof, snow sports jacket. It features an Embedded RECCO location chip technology on the upper right sleeve. This is a gorgeous jacket and very trendy in design, it has heaps of beautiful and more importantly – functional – details to it, which I will try my best to describe! The zippers throughout are concealed/discreet in appearance, there is the main closure one, which has a metal YKK two-way zip pull – an amazing feature when you are desperate for the toilet! It also has 2 discreet zipers which run from the side of the bust to the inside of the elbows, which when opened reveal a lilac wick/woven material, which is very handy in the event you are getting too warm and just need some cooling down without unfastening/opening the jacket up. The cuffs have fleece lining which runs approximately 1/3 to 1/2 way up the forearm, there is a choice of 2 stud fastening options at the cuffs, to tighten or loosen as you please. The upper front of the jacket has a stud fastening flap front and can be styled in different ways as per my pics and the inner collar is fleece lined. All zip fastenings on the outer are discreet fastening with neon yellow zip pulls, apart from the main YKK metal zips. The inside of the outer front right pocket features an attached long lace with whistle, in the event you were in trouble this would be very handy to call for help, whilst the outer left pocket contains an attached retractable keyring/keychain handy to hold your keys or snow pass clip to. It is belted, which is also great for trapping heat in. It also features an adorable metal heart clip, which is solely a fashion accessory, it is not a functional carabiner and should not be used as such. The back of the jacket has a storm flap with rubber’Stella McCartney Adidas’ logo, whilst the lower hem has a reflective self-coloured band, again this is also to help find you in the event you were lost/injured. The inside of the jacket at the upper right bust features a rubber-like pocket which holds a piece of paper for you to write your name and address details on, I have the original which I have never written on and will include this with it, in my opinion it is best to keep the original, and with every trip you go on, just write on a piece of paper your name, lodgings, who to call in the event of an emergency etc, the little pocket has an upper flap so it won’t fall out, beneath the rubber pocket is a generous sized zipped pocket. The inside of the left bust has a little pocket to hold your ear-phones as well as 2 generously sized pockets, one zipped, the other a regular pocket. The bust is partially fleece lined. The lower portion of the inside of the jacket features a removable zipped hem, the hem is silicon threaded for grip, which traps the heat in and prevents snow/moisture entry, very clever and again removable should you be feeling too warm. This is the exact same design as worn by Cheryl Cole, only exception is this is the purple version. It is a size 36, in my opinion better suited to a medium-long torso than a petite one. In my opinion, best suited to a uk 8/small 10, 34 bust maximum. If you were intending on wearing very thick jumpers with it, you would have to be a size UK 6 to fasten it imo. Please find approximate measurements below. Bust: 16.5-17, hard to measure this with accuracy due to the flap front, but when I first bought it, I was a uk 8-10 frame, had a 34C bust and wore a long sleeved thermal top beneath and it fitted me just fine. If you are a 34 bust, you’re not going to have room or be able to fasten it if wearing a thick jumper, it would have to be a thin one. Underarm seam to sleeve edge: approx. 19, again not easy to measure with any accuracy as the design is not like a regular jacket with set seams where there would normally be. Length from side neck point to hem: 31. Condition: Very good, it has had very minimal wear, I’ve not been able to fit into it for a long time, had hoped to lose weight to be able to wear it again, but it’s just not going to happen, I have problems with my thyroid and I’m never going to be able to fit in to a lot of things that I used to. Really loved this jacket, I take good care of all my items but especially my more expensive items and have kept it in very good condition.
