Don't exactly need it and it hasn't got a hood but I've been after a corduroy coat for ages. Tried it on today and I really like it (they have it in a darker brown than this picture - nicer than the one shown). Only problem is we are skint (as per) and dh may kill me...

Pruna coat

I really like it. If it's a good fit and if it's lined, I'd go for it!

I like corduroy! It hasn't got elbow patches or anything like that!

And it is a good fit, and I'm pretty sure it was lined - yes it definitely was.

sweetmonkey - there is a limit to how many times I can do that !

Don't like it either- looks like a caretaker's overall - you asked

marthamoo Wed 30-Mar-05 14:25:39

3 for, 1 against...

Damn, 2 against.

laneydaye Wed 30-Mar-05 14:26:21

you can hear the voices in your head it.... buy it.....

marthamoo Wed 30-Mar-05 14:26:26

The one I would buy is darker brown - less overally.

It's nice...just beware that-rain+corduroy=material resembling cardboard

laneydaye Wed 30-Mar-05 14:27:11

think id be chuffed with either.....

northerner Wed 30-Mar-05 14:28:04

Tis a no from me too.

PMSL at caretakers overall all But I agree!

Twiglett Wed 30-Mar-05 14:31:21

I suppose if you buy it and don't wear it you could always cut it up to use as elbow patches on a nice tweed jacket

you would also have to avoid holidaying in redwood forests in the dry season

after all you wouldn't want to be responsible for starting a forest fire now would you?

marthamoo Wed 30-Mar-05 14:33:19

OK now I just want people who will tell me to buy it <<<sulk>>>

Blu Wed 30-Mar-05 14:33:44

oooh, I think it's fab!

And, damn you, Marthamoo, might get one!

Not expensive, either. Can you get it on your M%S card?

laneydaye Wed 30-Mar-05 14:33:52

treat yourself.......

Twiglett Wed 30-Mar-05 14:35:28

I'm just old enough to remember owning a pair of pink, flared cords

marthamoo Wed 30-Mar-05 14:39:37
