The sales are starting early this year, with clearance site Brand Alley cutting prices even further, with a sale of up to 90 per cent off (although you have to look hard to find a discount of that size).
In that selection is this classic Farhi by Nicole Farhi check pea coat, which is less than half price if you're quick. A distinctly '60s-styled item, it has that subtle black and grey check, a single vent at the back and a double breasted front with eight buttons, as well as two flap pockets.
Right now it's £148, down from £329. Stock is limited though, when it's gone, it's gone. Note that with Brand Alley, you need to register to browse, but it only takes seconds and is free.
