For the last two years I've been looking for the perfect parka. I'd like it to be black, smart, warm, bum covering and preferably without a belt. I'd like it to have a really lovely fluffy black furry hood (that looks and feels like real fur but isn't!) Budget about £200 but willing to pay more for the perfect coat. Have any of you seen anything that fits the brief? I'm beginning to think my perfect coat doesn't exist. But I'm sure it must as I've seen people wearing them (including OH's STBXW but he has no idea where she got her's from!)
I've lost 4st and my trusty trespass has been very draughty. As I'm planning on losing more weight I didn't want to spend a lot of money. But this is warm and cosy and will be fab outside in the nursery garden.
Landsend do several coats like the one above. In different lengths (so I think the linked one is almost knee length, but there are also mid-thigh length and another a little shorter). They also have petite versions which are usually another couple of inches shorter - measurements are usually given in the description. Definitely worth having a proper look around their website - especially at the sale stuff (can be bargainous) and I think there is a 25% off code today when you log in.
