I need a new winter coat
I want a masculine looking knee length coat, a car coat or a Cromby I have seen them described
Here is the Boden one
Not sure of the quality of the fabric tbh, I want as much wool or tweed as possible
I have a beautiful longer length Ronit Zilkha Harris Tweed coat in warm autumn colours from years ago and I love that
This is just a bit too tweedy but I do like it in the sage with the red running through/collar
I like this too but from last year Aubin and Wills
Any ideas>??
As usual will spend for the right coat, but don't encourage me too much

DarrellRivers Fri 21-Sep-12 18:11:48

VG ggirl
Lands end nice but double breasted
TMLEWIN contender
Reiss jacket just a little too short
Thanks lots

What a turn up! Nice looking

I would try in TKMaxx, they had loads of all saints tweed stuff in

DarrellRivers Fri 21-Sep-12 18:20:27

Yes, DD2 would love a trip there on Monday, good tip

I got this one after somebody linked to it here:

£25 in H&M!

Looks a lot more expensive than it is, in my opinion. But could be shorter than you are looking for...

DarrellRivers Fri 21-Sep-12 18:30:40

Will pop in there on Monday as well, thanks teatime

ggirl Fri 21-Sep-12 18:42:49

It is on the thin side but does feel lovely and warm
It comes to the knee, or just a bit below ( I am 5 foot 4)
