I've been looking for something like but but not sure so want your opinions!

Can anyone suggest any alternatives? It doesn't have to be a duffle, but wool/wool blend rather than puffer style and I like the fur lined hood.

Quite like this too:

I prefer the first one but the model does absolutely nothing for it, looks a damn mess!

The coat however, is lovely! grin

I really like it too

I prefer the first one, definitely. I would say it suits a young person.

I like the Zara one.

I have a light grey coat - I wish I'd gone for charcoal or dark red because it really shows up dirt. Are mucky kids jumping on you an issue?

Forgot to say I was looking at Nordstrom the other day and they had quite a selection. Worth a try.

I think the model may just be very tall, but the sleeves look too short and so it puts me off. I'm not keen on the colour either. have you looked on asos?



no fur trim hood but fleece lined www.topshop.com/en/tsuk/product/clothing-427/coats-919/clean-duffle-coat-2276648?bi=1&ps=200

Thanks all, some nice ones there dontlet thanks for posting.

Think I still prefer the Zara one. So tried it on yesterday in a Medium, fit was sort of ok but a bit tight on the bust. Does Zara only do v small sizes?? So I am between a M and a L and I am only a size 12??

Don't buy the Zara one if you are tall, the sleeves are clearly too short. I'm not mad on that shade of brown either.

Dancergirl Sun 13-Oct-13 11:13:24

Oooh, jus found it in dark grey, nice:


I'm only 5'3" and sleeves are often too long on me!

Dancergirl Sun 13-Oct-13 11:14:50

Actually I don't think it's exactly the same, doesn't have the zip.

I like both, but Zara quality is so poor that I wouldn't pay anywhere near that. I'd get a decent one from Hobbs or somewhere instead, for that price.

Dancergirl Sun 13-Oct-13 11:18:10

Yes does seem like a lot of money for Zara.

Have also found this from BHS:

The grey Zara one is fab!

StupidFlanders Sun 13-Oct-13 12:02:26

I much prefer the second one.

trixymalixy Sun 13-Oct-13 12:04:45

Zara sizes are very small. I'm supposedly smaller than a 12 according to their size chart, but no possible way could I get in less than 14 in there. Usually I'm L or XL.

Back from another shopping trip!

I tried the BHS one, it was a big NO, talk about frumpy, and looking around at the age of the average customer in there I had to get out fast. What was I thinking! shock

So back to Zara and tried the grey one which wasn't great. The colour was really drab. They didn't have the caramel one in a M so tried a S just to see it again and I really like it. So going to order the M online, unless anyone else can find me any other alternatives smile
