Simple as that. Any opinions, I can't decide...

ticketiboo Fri 03-Feb-17 13:00:47

Wrong link! Doh.

This one

NatalieRushman Fri 03-Feb-17 13:01:28

The link appears to just lead to my own shopping bag on boden.

Oops, x-post

Nospringflower Fri 03-Feb-17 13:03:47

I'm not keen.

NatalieRushman Fri 03-Feb-17 13:04:35

Not keen on the piping, but if you were set on it, looks best in navy.

ticketiboo Fri 03-Feb-17 13:09:23

This one any better?

Might be too young for me anyway... just reminds me of a jacket I had in that style but it was a grey/black colour, and I loved it. One of the items that makes me regret ever throwing anything out grin

The boden jacket is a bit too Sgt Pepper for me due to the shape and the piping. I much prefer the Next one.

FallenSkies Fri 03-Feb-17 13:12:20

Personally I prefer the next one

JournosAreLazy Fri 03-Feb-17 13:12:34

I have a jacket similar to the Next one and it gets loads of wear every Spring/Summer - it goes with tons of things. So handy to throw on.

ticketiboo Fri 03-Feb-17 13:20:32

Fab, I'm coming around to that way of thinking too, and doesn't do it any harm that it's significantly cheaper... Thank you.

CactusFred Fri 03-Feb-17 13:28:20

I prefer the Next one too

SumAndSubstance Fri 03-Feb-17 13:54:43

Another vote for the Next One. I don't like the piping or the buttons on the Boden one.

imjessie Fri 03-Feb-17 13:58:14

Navy , too military otherwise .

neveradullmoment99 Fri 03-Feb-17 20:18:16

Mint velvet do one:

mint velvet

Joseph Stalin's jacket.
Not keen.

58NotBothered Fri 03-Feb-17 20:39:34

Boden - NO. Horrid.

58NotBothered Fri 03-Feb-17 20:40:31

Next - NO.
Do you want to look paramilitary?

58NotBothered Fri 03-Feb-17 20:42:07

Mint Velvet - need I say more.
Is there a faschist look these days?

MargotLovedTom1 Fri 03-Feb-17 20:43:53

Well unless OP plans to team it with a balaclava I don't think it'll look paramilitary grin . Definitely the Next one.

hugoagogo Fri 03-Feb-17 20:45:44

It is a great look and a big fat YES to wanting to look like a paramilitary AND to wearing Joseph Stalin's jacket. grin

elQuintoConyo Fri 03-Feb-17 20:46:15

That Boden one is well moosey confused

I like the Next one.

The Mint Velvet one is a bit... meh.

TheMasterNotMargarita Fri 03-Feb-17 20:50:41

Really like the Next one.
Boden one is a bit like fancy Dress and the Mint Velvet has too many zips and faff. And I generally like zips and faff grin.

lazyb0nes Fri 03-Feb-17 20:51:53

Well I like the Boden one blush In navy. Might get one.

JournosAreLazy Fri 03-Feb-17 22:14:48

I live in N Ireland and no one has ever mistaken me for paramilitary when I wear my jacket that is similar to the Next one grin They wear black jackets anyway
