Don't have the duffle but my charges had vaguely similar but military style jackets. They were lined and felt padded and warm, generally true to size, maybe verging on the bigger side if anything but that could be to allow for lots of layers/chunky winter woolies underneath. They were definitely practical and pretty hard wearing, one got passed to the younger sister and was still in good enough condition to pass on again to my friend's daughter.
What's the 25% coat, I'm thinking of ordering these boots since they go up to a 39 but since my boss buys about 70% of the boden catalogue chances are i'd have the same boots as my charges!
Even with the 10% off that's only £6.00 off a £60 coat (big deal!). Don't normally buy from Boden but would probably have bought it at 20% off preview price. Oh well, anyone seen any nice (cheaper) girls duffle coats around?
Don't buy one yet, that's my advice. I bought them last year when they got reduced and I had some vouchers plus a good code. Where is that spend £30 get a tenner off code?!!! They were reduced before the winter well and truelly set in. They are roomy and they bobble. The do look nice though. I don't know if they are doing the shorter version this year as I can't face loling at winter clothes yet!!! but, the shorter one went down very well with the older girls. Please don't buy it until you have a great reduction. In the meantime introduce your friends and get some credit behind you.
Thanks kat for the advice. I think I will wait till nearer winter and see if it is reduced or get a better code. I suppose I just saw it and immediately fell in love with it (esp as I thought I was going to get a good deal). I am a bit put off that it bobbles but I think most wool coats do tend to, to some degree.
I ordered the camel colour as we had a similar one from Monsoon last winter and it looked super. However I'm now wondering whether swapping it for the bright pink one is the way to so ... I really hope it doesn't bobble!
I brought the green duffle last year for my dd and it is has not bobbled. They changed the design so the new duffles are 'ribbed'. Also i found even though they are dry clean they are quite resistant to stains. Brought mine last october and only had it clean twice at a cost of £5. I would definitely recommend!
