Where can I find a waxy coat?

I need a heavy warm waxy coat for daily wear. Does anyone know of somewhere that is selling them where I can go and try one on?

I have quite broad shoulders and so need to try coats on, so I don't really want to have to order online.

Thank you ever so much Stylers!

You mean like a Barbour?

There was a whole load in John Lewis recently.

if you mean like a Barbour then a country store like Scats, or a country show.

Barbour at John Lewis. Pricey but worth it smile

I got my Barbour from here, as they have some decent sales. However I tried on all the styles in my local Barbour shop first for size then ordered online for one in the sales :D If in doubt go up a size for the shoulders! Mine was half price because it was last year's lining pattern... fine by me !

Check out Jack Murphy website. A whole lot cheaper than Barbour. The website will tell you who stocks the brand.

thanks Stylers! I'm not sure if I want to go for the Barbour brand, I was snubbed by a sales person in a store at Christmas unfortunately.

I am a bit tempted to pick up a fisherman's one from a market to be honest just to avoid buying Barbour blush
