How about uniqlo
Although I just had a quick look and couldn't see anything on website but sometimes they have different stuff in store to the website.

Olive green
Quite cool, but not in green.

mehgalegs - god i love that website! never heard of them and some gorgeous stuff. have a slight fetish obsession for interesting hosiery and love the patterned ones on there. and the granny boots. and loads of stuff. thanks so much!

mehgalegs Thu 02-Oct-08 12:20:53

Aw thanks beans - they are a laugh.

Browntrout - it is lovely isn't it? Some of us have ordered lovely raincoats from them. Mine was too big though so I am hoping to exchange.

Ralph Lauren had a super lush one in dark green, think it was in last years sale though and still quite a hefty price tag! NOt as long as you described either but longer than usual so bit different and had tuck away hood. I wanted it.

have you tried the Gap? Know they don't have website yet. They soemtimes have quite nice ones, but alot have GAP written all over them..
