north face

north face with detachable dead animal

love the Loft patagonia one but think I'm better sticking with black??

the north face ones are marginally less 'i am wearing my duvet' and i hate fake fur.

I love the loft patagonia one in brown if money os no object. However the other patagonia one is nice too. I like brown rather than black personally. I think the shaping of the patagonia one would be very flattering.

North Face

The Patagonia is similar to a Lands End one.

Hate the North Face one for some reason- go for the other one!

talk to me about Lands End... I came across them in my search and was not horrified by their prices but some alarm in my head said "Lands end = Bad thing"

Remember I am not from this country and be kind on my ignorance, please

North face one or the expensive one that you had on another post.

TheBalladofGayTony Tue 15-Sep-09 14:29:59

landsend isn't v. cool but then you are buy and duvet with arms so have a look.

the north face and pategonia ones will be v. light and warm compared to cheaper affairs.

Lands End is for people of a certain age or those who prefer not to follow fashion. But although most of their things are deadly dull they do surprisingly have the odd (very odd!) gem of a coat.

Lands End is an American company with a British arm.

NoahDear Tue 15-Sep-09 15:39:19

NoahDear Tue 15-Sep-09 15:40:57

they dont sell mine any more. its short, was polar white and still is oddly

I think the Patagonia loft one in brown is the best and is a good fitted shape.

TheBalladofGayTony Tue 15-Sep-09 16:56:31

yes why so long?
i think i like thsi one but am unfamiliar ground with teh padded jacket thing

dexter73 Tue 15-Sep-09 17:02:29

The problem with short jackets is that your bum freezes! I speak from experience of this!Also they look funny over long tops/jumpers.

TheBalladofGayTony Tue 15-Sep-09 17:06:02

but don't you get too warm in the big duvet things?

Lizzylou Tue 15-Sep-09 17:10:09

Hmm, out of all of them I like the detachable dead animal one best (detached)

Far prefer this one though

LetThemEatCake Tue 15-Sep-09 17:11:52

don't want a short one, want long - to cover post-natal arse.

One of the NF ones I linked to has no puff - acceptable??

LetThemEatCake Tue 15-Sep-09 17:13:43

yes yes the dead animal one - no michelin man rolls of puff

am off the idea of anything belted. Just one more thing to faff with. Bear in mind bfing this winter

Lizzylou Tue 15-Sep-09 17:16:49

Ah, OK.
Then go for the dead animal one.

MaggieBeauLeo Tue 15-Sep-09 17:19:21

oh do it!

I ordered a lands end one last year, and it was so warm, it just made me less afraid of winter. I wasn't all grouchy standing out side the school or walking into town. winter couldn't touch me in that coat.

why did i not do that years ago!?!?
