Oh sodding hell! Is this coat nicer? (I'd sworn off wool but, oh well...) or the duffle coat below it...? Thanks

Well i like them both but if you want to get a number of years out of it...go for the plain navy. The tartan will date.

I prefer the plain navy. The material looks nicer.

The plain one.

I like the checked one. I'm not a fan of duffle coats.

I love duffle coats so the 2nd one.

Definitely the duffle coat.

Duffle. The other one looks shabby but not in a good way IMO. I do like tartan in general though.

The duffle. The other one does look a bit shabby

Second one looks really smart and versatile, I'd go for that!

I have a Gloverall Duffle - the classic duffle co -

Just to throw another one into the mix! Their sizing is very traditional, i.e. a 10 is a true 10 and not a vanity ten.

They do a range of styles, I have the long slim fit which I absolutely love - reckon it will outlive me.

They are both quite nice but the second one is better, in my opinion. I'd go for that one (the plain blue one)!

Both really nice. I personally like the first one but would wear either.

Valsoldknickers Mon 01-Dec-14 16:31:39

I really like both, but if pushed I would go for the duffle (and would buy a nice checked scarf to make up for not getting the first coat)!

I only say the plain coat as someone who has bought patterned coats and gone off them very quickly.

The navy duffle

I think plain is better, but I don't like the plain navy one here because I hate coats with hoods.

Can you find a nice hoodless plain one? Do they do the check one in a plain colour?
