Anyone doing orange jackets/coats this year?

My trusty orange duffle jacket from Gap (20 pounds in a sale some years ago!) is looking a bit shabby and I want to replace it with something similar because it goes really well with all the browns/greens/beiges etc I wear. Sadly, this year we're all wearing purple! Have been looking around but can't find a replacement - does anyone know any stores doing something in orange this year? I am thinking kind of Hobbs-type pricing, although cheaper would be great!

Sniff ... bumping for the evening crowd. Even though I think I have found the perfect waterproof for Moondog's dc, no-one wants to help me with my orange jacket quest!

next doors Yorkshire terrier has a nice orange coat as does the nice man who delivered me a pallet of bricks today. I was so taken by the shape and style, I enquired and apparently it's called "dayglo safety visibility reflective weatherproof garment"
Seeing them everywhere this season esp at major road works locally.

I am hurt, Piffle! In fact, I might flounce ... but no, my need for this orange coat it too strong! Saw a lovely full-length coat in Paul Costelloe today, would like something similar but without the 300 quid pricetag.

Just on the off-change, how many Yorkshire Terriers would I have to skin to make a size 14 jacket?! grin

there's a gorgeous audrey hepburnesque bright orange jacket in Cos but sounds like the wrong kind of style for what you'd like

I'm 99% certain I saw a short mac jacket type in orange today in Per Una (it was in a few bright colours)

Orange short mac style coat, George at Asda £15. I saw it recently but Orange clashes with me. The black looks cheap and ordinary IMHO but the orange I thought looked OK

Thank you all for the suggestions, I will check them out!
