OK, granted it’s nearly 20 degrees and approaching November right now, but eager beaver retailers have been trying to flog you their winter wares since August, so we think it’s about time we gave them a break, don’t you?! If you haven’t bagged some real bargains in their midseason sale, now is the optimum time to buy your winter coat. Seriously, we’ve been harping on about it for months and if you haven’t yet decided between that decadent coloured fur piece, or that oversized check wonder, now you really do have to make your move. Why? Because the temperature IS going to drop. It’s inevitable and we’d hate for you to end up weeping in a corner because you decided to wait on purchasing that coat. You know, the one that will change your life forever, bring you riches, make you thinner... THAT coat. We mean, COME ON. Winter happens every year; invest early and look smug, you’ll thank us for it later.
