What have you bought that you bring out year after year(seasonal)or has lasted ages and has been great value?
My duffle coat has been a best buy for me. I have been wearing it two years plus and it will do this winter too( despite wanting a cape coat), wooly Jigsaw hat (also two years old) Uggs,

Two years isn't long! Toast velvet skirt - 5 years, like new. Brora scarf and mittens 5 years. My very plain Gabor boots lasted 11 years, and I hesitate to send them to the charity shop now ( still in really good nick) My first Barbour, still going strong after 25 years. Kimono dressing gown, worn as an evening dresswhen I was a student - 38 years ( is this a record?)

ooo, smart winter coat from Wallis, bought in the sales erm possibly 5 (yes, 5!!) years ago, still looks fabulous. The shoes, the hat, the scarf have all changed, but the coat keeps marching on.

I have a Joules wool military style coat in Navy which I bought 3 years ago and its been brilliant.

I also have lots of great handbags which come out every season, currently wearing Peony & Moore Lucia which i've had since Jan/Feb and its wearing well, Jones the Bootmaker leather riding boots have lasted me too, love them...plus my trusty Barbour which comes out all year!

Two years imo is good!I am just happy that I seem to be able to keep a pair of winter gloves for longer than a few months without loosing them! I have stuff that has lasted six years.. A designer scarf that I paid peanuts for when it was on sale, another scarf that I have had around 13 years that is still gong strong
