Why does Leanne wear that mac all the time - come rain or shine and always buttoned up to the neck, ala Dot Cotton Style?

It makes her look about a 100!

Maria, on the the other hand, even though a bit of a psycho, seems to pull off the mac look quite well! (probably because she wears it loose.)

Its her spring coat. In winter she has that awful red wool thingy on all the time. Always buttoned up like she is on military parade.

I was only thinking the other day how awful that mac is. I have a similar colour mac but different style and I have to confess I've been avoiding wearing it because I'm worried it looks as dreadful as hers? I think in general they gave her pegged as just a bit out of style now, tries hard but just looks a bit mumsy.

I think the winter coat is purple/maroon again very popular a few years ago now looks a bit dated.

Its the buttoned up 'military style' way she has of wearing it! Even the belt is done up precisely.
Somebody should burn it (the mac, not Leanne grin)

I can't remember the red wooly thing. Fortunately, I missed that horror.

I noticed she was also wearing a big scarf wrapped around her last night like it was as cold as November. Maybe I missed something, was she covering up a hickey from her gym bunny?!

I never see her as Leanne. She will always be Eileen Critchlwy in GBH to me.

If this is her Spring Coat and the red wooley thing her Winter Coat.
I wonder what she will wear for the Summer?
How many versions of the mac style are there?

Thank God! It's horrendous isn't it.

I was worried that this thread would go "Leanne's mac, where did she get it? It's fab!"

Should have called it I HATE Leanne's Mac smile

Sunny weather in Weatherfield and they BOTH had macs on in Corrie??

Leanne had the top button undone tonight. Things are improving.

Yeah! No mac today - we now have a brown leather jacket!

But..............Wait!

It's raining and she has an umbrella, so now is the one time she SHOULD be wearing THE MAC! confused

Never mind the mac. That woman needs to give her fanny a rest. Has she ever NOT been in a relationship that overlapped or was left hanging?

I never knew she used to be as prozzie. Must have missed all that.

Think she does a time share of the mac with slimy Todd who also wears it buttoned up to the top. Ugh horrible.

Clawdy Sun 13-Jul-14 21:38:29

Am I the only person who rather likes Leanne? smile

waterducksback Mon 14-Jul-14 21:24:02

Yeah, Leannes okay.
And Her Mac.

waterducksback Mon 14-Jul-14 21:24:39

lucjam - Time shares mac with Todd. Classic.

Clawdy, I like Leanne she's a good character but I have to admit the Mac and all her other coats have been awful.

Batmam Tue 15-Jul-14 03:52:12

No, I don't like Leanne she's so self-righteous.

And how could you all forget about her disgusting tan leather jacket?!

Clawdy Tue 15-Jul-14 19:13:43

Hmm..you're right, her outfits aren't great...smile
