Looking for something smart for work that is warm and has a hood. Preferably wool. Most smart coats seem to be hood-less but I don't want a duffel coat or a parka. Flexible about colour, though tend to prefer black.....

Just to add- budget is up to £300.

I'd like a shortish trench coat style with a hood... Can't find one anywhere! Umbrellas are useless when you've got frizzy hair! Watching with interest...

Short grey one from La Redoute?
beige or black one from La Redoute again?
Kookai trench style cape coat in black ?

A bit strange with the Kookai one that the belt is not included hmm

HI, thanks for the suggestions but not really what I am looking for. Was thinking something more tailored (eg button down, fitted to waist and then flared out) to the waist and then flared out. But with hood.

Aaaargh! Does this even exist? Come on mumsnetters! This is a challenge for you! smile

This might not completely meet your criteria but I think it's smart, has a hood and I love it!

I know it says duffel but i don't think it looks like a traditional duffel, it has a hood and is wool

I have not looked at the links posted, but Kew has this , soft wool hooded coat, in the sale. Only in size 12.

Hi thanks for the suggestions, none are quite exactly what I had in mind unfortunately. Well, apart from the one byanymeans is going to make herself- perhaps you can make me one too wink .

Hmm... there is obviously a market out there for nice tailored coats with a hood. After all, we live in a rainy, windy country!

Etsy may have some thing?
Grey Cashmere
Maybe a bit Gothic but very nice
Im not sure about

I best get on and make my jacket next week and see if I get any orders smile

Da Wanda might be worth a browse, you can search by colour, price, material etc, they have the coat byanymeans linked to for €258.

I tried to find one last year and drew a complete blank. Jaeger did have one but it was more like a parka. Tis very annoying. I end up using an umbrella.

I saw a orange one in Debenhams yesterday. have you seen the Uniqlo one in Elle. Think it might be as part of the Jill Sander collaboration. Its black and has a hood (think its an advert)

warmandwooly Tue 13-Sep-11 11:40:55

Ok both by Uniqlo -current Elle magazine page 139 wool and down coat for £179. Short Parker of the same maetial etc is £129.90 and is featured in advert near the Poppy Delevinge article

Would any of these work?

saoirse86 Tue 13-Sep-11 12:57:20

or this?

saoirse86 Tue 13-Sep-11 13:05:58

I just saw this one and thought it was nice but then realised it's a man's coat! hmm

Perhaps a bit plain? Dh has a wool and down jacket from last year and it only has a little down padding. It is more like a wool jacket to look at and only a little warmer than one.
