Ditto North face alternative
Am peed off as would have bought it myself to be honest if I had known this
Any other suggestions.
Longer length, faux fur collar, waterproof...
Here's hoping

I suppose he thinks 1st December is early
However surely this cold weather has meant every Tom, Dick and Harry is buying blardy warm coats
Am hacked off
Have lots of lovely coats but needed a hardcore warm coat for winter/school run/rain/snow blardy blardy blardy blah
(thankyou for sympathy)
Have just checked on ebay, nil there hurrumph

Keeping checking the Lands End site, sometimes they come back in stock.

Lancelottie Wed 01-Dec-10 14:24:33

It's still in stock in most sizes and colours. Maybe they'll have some returns?

<<must get round to posting back vast parcel of stuff that didn't fit -- though sadly not nice warm coat>>

5GoldenFimbos Wed 01-Dec-10 14:28:09

this as an alternative?

DarrellRivers Wed 01-Dec-10 14:28:49

I'll keep an eye on and buy it myself
No nil in my size at present, maybe in white, but don't want white coat, am not Liz Hurley

5GoldenFimbos Wed 01-Dec-10 14:30:17

or this. I know its petite but I am sure I ordered a coat from them before and I am far from petite and it was ok.

5GoldenFimbos Wed 01-Dec-10 14:31:20

The last link of mine, if you click on petite it comes up in brown.

DarrellRivers Wed 01-Dec-10 14:32:23

Thankyou for trying fimbo but sadly they are all not right.
Although reading the board today, my DH troubles are not quite the same as others hmm

DarrellRivers Wed 01-Dec-10 14:33:24

I liked the fit of the Chevron down otherwise I get swamped in coats

5GoldenFimbos Wed 01-Dec-10 14:34:45

I know, its rubbish when you set your heart on something and then it's gone, nothing quite compares. Keep your fingers crossed, a coat I wanted from there last year kept coming in and out of stock, I think I was checking the site about 5 times a day at one point. grin

DarrellRivers Wed 01-Dec-10 14:38:45

Perhaps will buy regular in small in white and see what it looks like and return if not right
I think I will seize the moment
or this, but it is double price ce=Froogle&utm_medium=PriceComp&utm_term=Froogle&u tm_content=None&utm_campaign=PriceComp1

DarrellRivers Wed 01-Dec-10 14:53:18

And white has sold out in my size.
Probably the best as it tends to wash me out

tethersjinglebellend Wed 01-Dec-10 14:54:50

if it helps, Land's end sizes are fucking enormous.

tethersjinglebellend Wed 01-Dec-10 14:55:28

What size are you?

DarrellRivers Wed 01-Dec-10 14:56:41

probably petite s.
Am size 8
Tell me it wouldn't have fitted and would have looked crap

tethersjinglebellend Wed 01-Dec-10 15:22:26

Could you do pink?

tethersjinglebellend Wed 01-Dec-10 15:29:43


pointydog Wed 01-Dec-10 15:29:59

The parka style no good? Did you want it longer?

Looks like not a bad coat, not a bad price.

DarrellRivers Wed 01-Dec-10 15:30:23

perfect coat
correct size
but i can't do pink , i think, mulls over the idea.....

tethersjinglebellend Wed 01-Dec-10 15:33:16

Might be worth checking in store? They did have other colours...

manicmamma Wed 01-Dec-10 15:35:39

Im a size 8 had to send back my lands end parka ...sleeves were too short and Ive not got long may not fitted anyway....

LadyLapsang Wed 01-Dec-10 15:48:10

Have a look on Amazon, Columbia Melange Maven mid length woman's insulated down jacket reduced from £150 to £78, they have black in XS and S. Also worth looking on ebay if you are prepared to trawl for the one you want.

MrsAlwaysRight Wed 01-Dec-10 16:43:34

Cotswold Outdoors showing North Face Arctic Parka in stock in S and XS in Black. I used a code earlier in week to get 15% off so about £220. Let me know if you want code and I'll try and find it.
