I kid you not, I honestly think this was my first (and probably last) big splurge for a long time. I don’t regret it because it is an item that I will wear frequently. So if you’re curious about what I got, maybe click “read more” to find out?
Honestly I can’t say that I got this on a whim, because there was about a 3 month long discussion with my mom before this purchase. Most of the time it was of her trying to convince me to buy some other $200+ coat rather than the one I had my eye on, which was cheaper in comparison.
Here’s the backstory; normally, spring in Toronto (in my opinion) can range anywhere from you needing “just a light jacket”, to “I need something warmer”. My options weren’t that good to be honest, so I had hoped that the coat would fit the grey area between temperatures.
My original preference was to get a beige colour because I already had a black coat and the dark brown colour in the pictures had looked more chocolate than a dark greyish-brown. Unfortunately, it was out of stock and didn’t seem like it was going to be back in stock, I also toyed around with the idea of getting a few of my other options but ultimately the fit would’ve been a little tight for me. So I ended up ordering the CHUU Studios No. 9 in deep brown.
Cut to about 3-4 weeks later and the coat had arrived in the mail, after picking it up from the post office I immedietly tried it on and it fit nicely.  It wasn’t unnecessarily long and fell to about an inch below my knees, it’s the same colour as in the pictures (grey-ish dark brown) and has a sash/belt to hold the coat closed. Overall, it’s perfect for the “in between” temperatures for spring and fall.

The price I got the coat for is about $180 CAD which isn’t bad, but I personally would consider this a pretty pricey purchase. Overall, it will be a good purchase depending on where you get this coat and at what price.
