Hi I am looking for a good quality black trench coat similar to the Hobbs ones but in black. I have searched high an low but am unable to find a good quality black trench. Any ideas? brew

I have one from Banana Republic that I rate

Thank you redact. They seem to have sold out sad. I am surprised there are few black trench coats most are navy blue.

Karen Millen have one but it doesn't appear to have a belt and Warehouse have one but it's a cotton mix. I looked a while ago and you're right, not many black cotton ones around. Good luck.

Ooooh, I'd be happy to look like Paddington if I owned that. It's lovely.

Kochicoo grin I love the cut of the BB one and the lush fabric and quality make but the inner lining seems pretentious somehow and thus unstylish (imo) I like understated and the BB lining is maybe a little blatant, an obvious British status symbol?

The Karen Millen is stylish but I'd love a classic belt one.

Not quite right probably - bit short (would be for me) and I know it's probably below your budget but it is cotton, Esprit is usually nice quality and hood is removable!

Know what you mean about the Burberry check - I will forever think of those Daniella Westbrook photos.

The esprit one is nice and i have found their quality especially the EDF rage is very good but you are right it's a bit short for what i have ion mind and the hood is too casual.
i google danielle westbrook and burberry and OMG that's check bonanza. worst still.... grin

but esprit is one to check every now and again for classic black trench thanks for the recommendation.
