I was clearing out and mine are
1) Full length smart wool coat
2) Full length Landsend Chalet Coat for playground duty!
3) Short waterproof dog walking jacket with detachable fleece liner
4) Summer waterproof jacket
5) Short smart wool "car coat"
plus numerous scruffy fleeces.

I'm pondering whether I can justify another winter coat!

AsBrightAsAJewel Sun 14-Dec-14 21:59:04

I fancy a trench-coat or full length smart raincoat! Preferably in a really bright colour. All the ones mentioned above are either black or dark blue.

Loads. I buy one big expensive one every autumn, plus miscellaneous stuff in between - especially rainwear. I like fun and funky rainwear.

7 coats, 6 jackets. I need to weed some out.

I think eight maybe more. I threw about about 6 at the beginning of the year blush.

I am goldilocks, too big too small... I want one that is just right grin

I think I have found it. I expect I'll now wear it until destruction

AsBrightAsAJewel Sun 14-Dec-14 22:14:14

I think my conclusion is yes, I can justify another one - now to find it!

ChristmasJumperWearer Sun 14-Dec-14 22:16:02

About 10. blush

Coats, shoes and handbags are my downfall. so I picked the cheap stuff, obvs.

IgnoreMeEveryOtherReindeerDoes Sun 14-Dec-14 22:16:23

8 coats, 2 jackets but they vary in sizes I've gone from slim to huge to working my way back to slim.

MrsPigling Sun 14-Dec-14 22:17:42

wow! I feel deprived now, I've got 3 coats

big parka style winter coat
thin cotton lightweight thing
raincoat (thin packamac thing)

AngusAndElspethsThistleWhistle Sun 14-Dec-14 22:21:06

2 winter coats (one grey, one green)
1 yellow raincoat
1 black blazer
1 grey tweed blazer
1 yellow blazer
1 fleece

Am coveting a black peacoat at the moment and a cream winter coat.

Lindor Sun 14-Dec-14 22:25:27

None. Just layer up and wear a fleece if it's cold. Coats are stupidly expensive

MirandaWest Sun 14-Dec-14 22:26:39

I have two winter coats, a spring/summer trench coat and a kagoule

Wadingthroughsoup Sun 14-Dec-14 22:28:38

Oh my goodness. Is it normal to have loads of coats? I've got 2. My regular one is a North Face Arctic parka, and the other one is a smart wool coat which I wear if I'm going someplace nice. If you include a very thin waterproof which I wear for cycling in Spring/Autumn, then I've got 3.

ToffeeLatteplease Sun 14-Dec-14 22:28:56

I'm wondering what a car coat is, whether I need one and why I don't already have one....

Not that I'm being disloyal to my present one and only...

ToffeeLatteplease Sun 14-Dec-14 22:30:43

Wading - I would only have one if I'd found my current coat first grin


MaryWestmacott Sun 14-Dec-14 22:35:31
