John Lewis do them, but it's probably a bit too early in the year tbh. Wait till mid-september.

or here.

I have navy ones in both those sizes which I was going to ebay, if you're interested. Obviously not brand new, but still plenty of wear left.

You know I'm almost certain that NEXT did them last winter? Why not wait for their new catalogue to come out?

hmmm , i like the jojo ones but theyre not big enough. dd has the funky duffle and its lovely and was hoping to be able to get a boys one like it.

I have a brown one that might fit ds2 if you want it.

belcantavinissima Sat 09-Aug-08 13:52:50

really avena? that would be great! what size is it? ds2 will be 6 in jan but he is quite tall.

AvenaLife Sat 09-Aug-08 13:59:31

I'm not sure of the size, it doesn't have a size inside. It fitted ds last year, he's a small 9 and fits into 7 year old clothes. It does need a bit of a clean though. I have a wool wash on my machine to can do this for you. It has toggles and is very geeky. His old school uniform was brown and everything had to be bought from one shop. I have brown shorts and cream shirts to find a home for aswell.

belcantavinissima Sat 09-Aug-08 14:00:39

ah! sounds cool, is it geeky in a cool way?!!! how much would you like for it/could you post a picture?

AvenaLife Sat 09-Aug-08 14:00:58 12_FC.html

It's one of these.

belcantavinissima Sat 09-Aug-08 14:04:50

thats ACE!!!! how long does it come down to? hehehe ds2 would look so cute in that with his shaggy hair and scruffy clothes! how much do you want for it?

AvenaLife Sat 09-Aug-08 14:08:37

It cane down past ds's knees. He had to wear shorts and long socks so he really did look rediculous! grin

I'll send it to you first, see what you think. It's had a bit of wear but there's still some life left in it. If you don't want it just send it back and I'll sell it here. I don't have cat. My emails jouelsie at fsmail dot net

AvenaLife Sat 09-Aug-08 14:09:10

Doh! came not cane! blush

belcantavinissima Sat 09-Aug-08 14:16:42

thanks, have emailed you smile

i think that school uniform combo may have actually put me off the school tbh! grin

AvenaLife Sat 09-Aug-08 14:18:27

I wouldn't stick dd in one of these. She may look sweet but she'd have the piss taken out of her at school and she'd never forgive you. Boys don't care what they look like until they hit 10 so you're safe there.

AvenaLife Sat 09-Aug-08 14:19:02

Opps. I mean the older ds.
