I don't think it's frumpy as such, I just don't like it much. I think a biker would be much more on trend.

very very frumpy!

It's v mumsy. You'd get much more wear out of a biker, I think.

Frumpy ....... Go biker rather

PetiteMum Fri 29-Mar-13 21:52:52

Crap, and here's me thinking I would look cool and kind of 'army'. Lol

Bluelightsandsirens Fri 29-Mar-13 21:54:03

Oh dear even I can see that is frumpy and that's saying something grin

It's not that bad. I don't think it's worth nearly £60, though.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Fri 29-Mar-13 22:01:30

If you want 'army' I think this one looks nicer

I don't think frumpy but price is ludicrous. There are a few ok ones like this at DP's at the moment, and maybe have a look at Zara too?

PetiteMum Fri 29-Mar-13 22:12:09

Yeah I agree with the price..... I don't even think its lined

It's not frumpy but a parka shouldn't have elbow patches IMO. Looks weird rather than frumpsville. Find a nice parka without the elbow patches.

Frump-TASTIC. It's from Marksies FFS.

MsWinnieBaygo Fri 29-Mar-13 23:40:38

Whilst I'm surprised at myself for saying this Markies, especially their Limited Collection stuff, do have stuff that is v unfrumpy. It's not where this parka is from that is the issue, it's that the elbow patches on it are weird
