a bit on the bigger side for sure... I dealt with a lot of Hobbs when i worked in a posh charity shop. Own a bit too..

I will be passing by Hobbs at the weekend, I might have to have a look. Is it lined?

Thanks. I'm very tempted by the green one now then. I wonder if it will be in the sale? Not sure I'll risk it as I have a size which usually sells out.

I've been eying up GREEN-14&refpage=coats-jackets this Hobbs coat for a while, but wasn't sure how warm it would be.

If I was any size of 12 I would be delighted! grin

I expect she's an m&s 12 rather than a Zara/Topshop 12 - but let's not open that can of worms! grin.

The Daily Mail journalist didn't look a size 12 in the photos.

I disagree on the ageing and frumpy comment. I think that most items of clothing can be made to look like that if not worn properly.

ShotgunNotDoingThePans Sun 01-Dec-13 09:41:33

Oh dear this thread's gone a bit weird. Sorry op - just my opinion on the length; I used to wear longer length skirts a lot and now realise it was frumpy and ageing on me.
I didn't see you showing any irritation, btw; maybe the other poster thought my miserable contribution was you.

Specialbrew Sun 01-Dec-13 09:41:28

Buy it! Looks like a great colour, and would look as good open.

I'm 5 2" so it would probably hit my ankles, but would good on taller women.

I've just ordered this from Hobbs. I'm a size 8 and have ordered the 8. Whch isn't much help with your sizing question
