DS2 has a proper waterproof padded coat, but he does look so smart in his brown sheepskin one & prefers to wear it but I can't do it up now. I saw a boy his age in a boden pea coat but they're not doing them this year. Only thing similar is this Lands End one but it's £££ I'd prefer not navy or black ideally, his waterproof is navy. Want to avoid quilted. I've tried M&S, Debenhams, Next, Boden. Any ideas?

Some nice boys' coats in Zara:


wool coat

duffle Bordeaux or Navy


Nautical Black

Like all the pea coats but navy and black a bit dreary for small boy. Zara sheepskin is lovely but ££, I'll lookout for it in the sale tho. Any other cheery but smart suggestions?smile

What is his sizing like? I got a lovely grey one from GAP, but they only seem to do up to 5yo.

He's a biggish boy but only turning 6 in 2 weeks. Is the gap grey one online?

Have a look at Vertbaudet and Monsoon

H&M have a navy one for not much money.

PS Vertbaudet have a 50% flash sale on at the mo

I was about to suggest Vertbaudet too! Their peacoats are navy and grey but they've a gorgeous bright red duffle at half price (£22).

Looked up the gap grey one which is really lovely but not sure if its too small. Drat 30% off has just finished! The verbaudet red duffle is very cute and a great price. Wary of quality and being inundated with offers from them though, have avoided them until now because of that. Really want to avoid navy and black which rules out a few. Thanks all!

I ordered the red duffle and the grey one (without mittens) for DS to try.

Don't know if you're still looking, but have a look in the girls' sections:this one from H&M is nice.

Thanks tethers, that's nice just wanting to avoid navy. Watching this Boden on eBay or I shall wait for Zara sale I think

It was the checked one I linked to, I guess it didn't come up... Hope you get a good one smile

accessorizequeen Fri 16-Nov-12 09:37:49

No didn't see checked one just navy. I'll have another look, thanks smile
