Men's coat but definitely can be worn by a woman. I did. I love this jacket. This coat is too nice to allow it to disintegrate in my closet. It's time to let it bring someone else pleasure.

There are a few marks from normal wear - I think this adds to the style. See the photos.

Words and photos cannot convey the soft gentle feel of this jacket.
The two stash pockets have just enough of a bellow and are big enough to allow you to carry all the necessities on your walks - dog leash or treats? Maps? Snacks? Pocket binoculars? Guide book? All of the above! Snap the pockets closed and there is no worry of loosing anything.
Hands cold or you just want to shove them into your pockets? No problem. The hand warmer pockets are roomy and, well, WARM! And no need to share with the dog leash and the guide book.

Then there is the inside pocket to stash more valuable items such as a wallet or passport.

The hood is also lined with flannel. Just pop the hood up and block any wind or rain from your neck and head.

The knit cuffs inside the sleeves also keep out rain and cold.

More on sizing. I am not familiar with UK sizing, men's or otherwise. I am female and just shy of 5'5" and probably 135-140 lb when I got this coat... and I wore it happily. As it's a men's it was a little loose on me but that allowed for an extra sweater etc. It's definitely not for a big man.

I have listed this a "vintage" as it has been around awhile and this style is no longer available.
