I bought this in bordeaux. It is an even better colour in reality than on the website - a deeper and richer dark red. The quality of thsi garment is absolutely top notch. Beautiful thick cashmere. I have a couple of similar jackets from previous seasons so I have very confidence it will wash as well as they have. This is a fabulously adaptable garment. It will look smart with a dress underneath for work or could be worn equally well with a t-shirt and jeans. Cost per wear will be low!
