I like these ladies looking elegant in their coats and hats. Probably because winter tends to make me feel more like a toddler in a snowsuit. (Especially when you're wearing so many jumpers your arms turn into unbending woollen sausages.)
Coats and 'ats was what my mama, and plenty of other people I'm sure, used to call C&A. Obviously we wouldn't be dropping the 'h' for any other reason.
