I’ve been eyeing the MOYA coat from The Arrivals ever since last winter and this year I finally decided to take the plunge and buy it before it was sold out. I love the look of leather and shearling and this coat totally gives off edgy vibes but being in Boston winters I need something practical as well. On their site they have their standard colors and this year I noticed they came out with a new one with the navy leather and black shearling. I love this combination because the black hardware blends in seamlessly. It is also their MOYA IV edition. I think they made slight updates to the coat since last year.
When I first received this coat I have to say I was a bit surprised, It is very heavy and the oversized fit is not something I’m always used to but I wore it a few times and now I’m obsessed! It came very nicely packaged and there was a garment cover included which will come in handy during summer storage. The leather is very soft and luxurious and the shearling is equally as soft and full. entire inside and sleeves are shearling lined with the trim on the sleeves and collar. I got the coat in size xxs and I think the fit is perfect. I did try the xs but it was way too oversized. I would say the fit is true to size. The coat features 4 pockets, 2 on the right chest and one on each side for the hands. The pockets are just fabric inside but still help in a pinch. There is functional belt detailing on the hem, end of the sleeves and the neckline. I don’t really ever buckle them up because it does take extra time but I don’t mind the look of them hanging down. They are also removable if you prefer. On to the best part of this coat is that it is extremely warm! Everything that is covered by the coat is nice and toasty however you should still cover the rest of your body so I would definitely bring along, a hat and gloves. The coat also isn’t as long as my Canada Goose, you can read that review here. With a fine leather coat like this I do take extra care of it by aways hanging it up carefully to maintain its shape and I do try to avoid wearing it on extremely rainy days. Overall I’m very happy with the quality and look of this coat as well as how warm it is.
- Beautifully made and high quality materials

- Still an investment and more expensive than faux options
- Can feel a bit bulky sometimes.
