I think the choice of coats for boys is pants unless you can spend a small fortune.

Ds had a really nice one from BHS last year, really thick and waterproof, but it somehow got ripped, so I replaced it with another BHS one, but it has been crap, all the lining has ripped.

Thankfully, I managed to get him a 2nd hand |Next one from ebay for about £3.50 grin

he's 7 but is quite tall so i need to go for an 8 or 9!

don't have a tkmaxx nearby or a hennes though could travel out to one.

southeastalien Wed 29-Oct-08 11:38:58

i know illegal, in my catalogue the nice ones are about £60!

I got a really brilliant striped fleece (green and navy) jacket for DS3 from Sainsbury. It was really cheap, looks lovely and is very very warm.

YeahBut Wed 29-Oct-08 11:41:30

Another H&M vote here - hooded, padded (but not too bulky) and waterproof.

IllegallyBrunette Wed 29-Oct-08 11:51:13

I have a slightly odd thing with boys coats in that they must be all one colour. I hate the ones that are blocks of navy and pale blue or red and orange etc.

No offence, it's just me being odd.

mosschops30 Wed 29-Oct-08 11:52:38

I got a lovely one for ds (3) in Next, its Navy with an inside thats like a furry teddy (I want it myself wink
Was £22

KatieDD Wed 29-Oct-08 11:54:19

that's quite nice katie but they only go up to 7/8 and he'll need bigger.

looks like i'll have to drive out to a hennes, though will check out sainsburys too

How about Joules?

KatieDD Wed 29-Oct-08 12:31:59

SHE20 gives 20% off at Joules, I forgot about them

I got DS1 a lovely warm, padded, hooded with the sleeve things for £13 in Woolies last Saturday - they were 1/2 price

Gobbledigook Wed 29-Oct-08 12:45:01

Yes, got ds1 and ds2 one in Zara, £12 each - padded and v warm.

I'm not spending a lot on coats that get used as goalposts in teh playground and get trampled onin teh cloakrooms!

elkiedee Wed 29-Oct-08 13:05:44

I may well have the same one for ds (17 months but 18-24 month size) as mosschops - he had a similar brown one from there which saw him through his first winter last year, and which has plenty of wear in it left for an expected little brother. But I suspect they may not go up big enough for op's son.

southeastalien Wed 29-Oct-08 15:35:51

southeastalien Wed 29-Oct-08 20:18:58
