Hobbs one for me, very classy, beautiful colour. The Jaguer not as flattering.

Definitely the Hobbs one. The colour is gorgeous!

I thik so too but Jaeger perhaps better in black than red
?

Definitely the Hobbs one <<sighs with longing>>

I prefer the Jaeger in black. Not sure what it is about the Hobbs coat that I'm not so keen on. It might be that the shoulders look a bit pointy.

Hobbs. I would be buying it myself if I wasn't pg and therefore the size of a small whale!

I like the Hobbs one but the colour will date really quickly. On balance I'd go for the Jaegar in black -it won't date.

You think?
I don't see how a colour will date tbh.
Not planning to wear it for ever ewither...

I like the red one better the shape is nicer. The other I don't like at all esp the colour and cut is a bit old fashioned. Would prefer black though.

I'd personally wait another month until more coats come into the shops.

They're both ok but not wow - unless you've tried them both on and they look great.

Jeagar one for me. Really don't like coats that don't fasten fully at the front.

moondog Wed 31-Aug-11 07:51:47

Ok.
Thanks for feedback laydeez...

Have you looked at www.bodenpreview.co.uk

There is a boiled wool coat which is nice- I have the 3/4 version from a year or so back and it's worn well.

I don't like the colour of the Hobbs coat BTW,- too bright.

Recommend you keep an eye out at Jigsaw's- when in stock- and also www.purecollection.com have a couple of classic coats that look nice.

The second one without a doubt. Tis lovely.

Oh that Hobbs coat is a thing of utter beauty! Hobbs hobbs hobbs, it's gorgeous!

Hobbs coat is lush. I don't love the colour but the style looks perfect.
