Me too. <lurks>

The same one I have worn for the last 4 years. sad

There's not many winter coats about at the moment.

I have been looking.

That one from Kew...half price, was about 100, black mac style very plain really.

Not sure why, it isn't very interesting! But feels nice iykwim. My friend has got the green.

here if you scroll down a bit, in green - you can't link to it though as it was summer range I think, thus being in the sale.

They still had a few left in ours last week.

Though this is lovely...

cornsillk Wed 12-Aug-09 17:20:30

Is it very childish to titter at the aquascutum coat on that link?

cornsillk Wed 12-Aug-09 17:22:09

oooh yes moleskin coat is lush.

Do people get a winter coat every year?

nowwearefour Wed 12-Aug-09 17:38:34

pointydog that was my question too. then i thought well maybe people are just needing to get a new one THIS year - sometimes we all will need to. mine will prob last 10 years before getting renewed though. at least....

BigGobMum Wed 12-Aug-09 17:45:57

shock that anyone feels the need to get a new winter coat every year! Whatever for?

fartmeistergeneral Wed 12-Aug-09 17:53:47

Oh no! I don't get one every year, but my last one is 3 years old, and though I love it, I just wanted to wear something different this year and splash out! The one I have at the moment, I wore every single day from October til about March!!!

Poor fart, exclamation marks all over the place wink.

I know, I had to exclaim a bit about not buying a winter coat every year (!)

PersonalClownisaShoeWhore Wed 12-Aug-09 18:00:35

If I could justify buying myself a new coat, then it would be this!

ipiratethief Wed 12-Aug-09 18:00:46

I might throw my parka in the machine!!

Brown funnel neck coat from Kew last year. No link I'm afraid. It's quite smart so I will get some sort of eiderdown affair for everyday.

pointydog Wed 12-Aug-09 18:07:29

does the red wig come with that, clown?

PersonalClownisaShoeWhore Wed 12-Aug-09 18:11:18

I hope so... I can never get my hair that colour!!wink

FlightHattendant Thu 13-Aug-09 09:49:58

Welll....I try not to buy a new coat every year, BUT last year I got a cheapo yucky one from Additions that I thought would look great, unfortunately it has awful buttons, there are only 3 of them toggles actually <bleh> and NO ZIP so it kind of hangs there, quasi open, and lets all the cold in. Crap.

So yes I bought a decent one that DOES UP this time.

I also got a very fancy one last year in a sale which is kind of a treat, only for special occasions which there are not many of. So am going to use it properly this year when it is too cold for mac.

I tend to buy something nice and useful if I see it - iyswim. and I keep all the coats...I must have a good few by now - don't just chuck them. Saying that the ones I got 10 years ago and never actually wear, but love all the same, I kid myself I'll wear them again. It's like holding onto the old me, in a way. <sad>
