Could those of you who have a sense of style have a quick look at this coat?

Is it nice?
Or not?

I cannot tell, but am looking for a loooooong, warm winter coat, ideally water-resistent (which this one is).

Thank you for your opinions.
Oh, I am 5'6'', size 14, hour glass.

I am no style maven but this looks practical. Not fashionable. And there are prolly better practical coats out there that are warmer. So it's a no from me. Sorry

Sorry blush. It would be very warm pitchside, though!

Haaa, Maryz! How very appropriate given the OP's warmth requirements. grin

I will NOT wear an oven - even I have my limits grin.

And I made Olivia larf, nay, ROAR <proud>

TNF coat seems to be worn by everybody and their dog around here; I am not looking for exclusivity, but...

The Merrell Haven is just not quite looooong enough I think, ends mid-thigh, doesn't it?

Ooh, the Trespass one might be a contender - thank you for linking, awsangel smile.

If they dont have your size on this link try the tresspass site itself. Its down with a rather lovely looking fur trim.

I'd like one of those warm long Merrell things, but I can't really justify spending over 200 euro on a coat, which is what they cost here.

They do come up on ebay every now and then, but you do have to look out for them obsessively. I am trying to find one for my mum...

ebay is no good to me Pacific. I've never found anything on ebay where the postage to Ireland was less than about 25 quid hmm.

Ah. That's crap. Is there such a thing as Gumtree??

I quite like it depending on which colour you were thinking of? Black would be my preferred choice. It's not the most stylish garment in the world but surely in the cold wet weather practicality wins over style especially if doing the school run.

I would like to have Non-Black (too many black jackets/coats already).

Ok, I might just order it from Land's End and see.
I've decided dry and warm (wet coat can dry at home/work) are more important than stunningly stylish (what was I thinking anyway?? My figure was last stylish in the 50s grin).
