Where can I buy a coat like this?

Sort of a smart, modern duffel type thing? Something smart so I can wear it to meetings, but practical so it covers the head and bum in case of downpours/cold.

£150 is my budget but hit me up with anything you see anyway, I can always look for things in sales or second hand.

Zara usually have a few.

pandarific Thu 12-Oct-17 16:30:45

Thanks Raving, I've had a look but they don't have anything at the mo.

Have you looked at "Only" brand?

Hooded wool coat

classic coat

"Only" hooded coats at Zalando

tissuesosoft Thu 12-Oct-17 17:18:37

George and Sainsbury's usually have some that are similar

New look have a similar zip up duffle coat, it has a fluffy hood and comes in a few colours but the grey one is gorgeous IMO

Scrubbydubby Thu 12-Oct-17 17:24:12

Silkfred have one just like that, brand is Vila

pandarific Thu 12-Oct-17 18:38:23

Thanks all, have looked at Only but they're too casual-looking, same with the Vila. Nothing suitable in the George and Sainsburys ranges.

Should have mentioned I'd rather spend more for a high wool % / smart look.

Maybe I should just give up and buy a nice wool coat and 7 hats to protect my head? But then I always just lose or forget them and end up getting drenched, hence why I'm fixated on a hood.

pandarific Thu 12-Oct-17 18:42:09

anon is it this one? I do like it and it's quite like one I have, but I think the fur trim and the length make it too casual.

Think it needs to be knee length and more business-y.

allinclusive Thu 12-Oct-17 18:46:33

I'm looking for similar. I'll let you know if I come across anything.

pandarific Thu 12-Oct-17 21:02:55

Thanks allinclusive. I had a similar nice coat from Massimo Dutti a few years ago, maybe they may have something that would work for you?

allinclusive Fri 13-Oct-17 20:12:38

Didn't think of them, thank you, I'll have a nosy.

WinkyisbackontheButterBeer Fri 13-Oct-17 20:20:30

Something like this?

PrimalLass Fri 13-Oct-17 20:24:01

Just a zip up the front will be a bit annoying.

Ididnthearanything Fri 13-Oct-17 21:36:16

What about this grey Zara one? 53% wool.

L0quacious Fri 13-Oct-17 23:24:37

I'd like a zip up the front wool coat too OP. I saw a lovely one in Ted Baker but it has the ubiquitous fur around the hood. It's nice though.

So sick of fur around the collar/hood. It just takes away from the smartness. Instantly makes you look dressed down.

L0quacious Fri 13-Oct-17 23:31:45

seen this OP
mango and esprit both come close to the type of coat I am after but nothing is just right.

MadeinBelfast Fri 13-Oct-17 23:37:48

I know it's slated on here but White Stuff had a nice hooded coat this week :

L0quacious Fri 13-Oct-17 23:48:58

I like that one too but on another thread somebody said it was very thin and not warm.

pandarific Sat 14-Oct-17 00:58:56

Ooh, some lovely options here - none of them THE ONE, but nice coats all the same!

allinclusive I found this at Cos which is very nice - a bit too pared back for what I had in mind, but thought you might like it! Also I liked this from Weekday a lot but again not business-y enough for me.

I am considering buying this coat from Mango - no hood but fab neckline and very versatile. I am seriously considering seeing if a local seamstress could attach a subtle hood for me in a similar wool accent shade. I think it could be done tastefully in a very light grey or beige but I may be kidding myself... what do you think?

pandarific Sat 14-Oct-17 01:02:38

Do you think we've got enough members to start a similar movement to the 'We Want Plates' movement? 'We Want Hoods'? grin

Shiftymake Sat 14-Oct-17 01:08:26 over budget though, but quite similar

LifeIsLikeTetris Sat 14-Oct-17 07:35:33

La Redoute I bought this last winter and was v pleased with it. The fur collar was a bit much for me and I took it off (it's removable anyway) . Not sure if it's as long as you were wanting. It's smart for work but also casual though.

LifeIsLikeTetris Sat 14-Oct-17 07:36:33

(I bought it in grey btw smile)

LifeIsLikeTetris Sat 14-Oct-17 07:43:25

Just seen the hood requirement, sorry sad.

I agree finding something with a decent hood is hard. Most hoods on coats seem huge to me. They look ok as a detail when they're not being used but when you put them up they're enormous and cover your face. I gave up looking in the end and resigned myself to hats.
