Boo Hoo! My "perfect" coat has already sold out! Can anyone console me or even perform a sartorial miracle and magic one up??

Here. It would have suited the pedalling-with-2-toddlers-on-the-bike-and-still-looking-cool lifestyle that I have aspire to. Sniff!

This aigle one is similar but twice the price.

AJ - are you in London? Cos I was in the Uniqlo shop in Oxford St today and they had rails of trenches - and in more colours than on the site.

Hoochie, I appreciate the thought, but alas it changes nothing! Off to bed with you now, 'tis late!

Brokenspacebar- I like the Aigle one- but not as much. And I have had a wee spending spree of late so couldn't justify it. I think the details on the +J are great- funnelly neck, drawstring thing etc..

Squeaver- I'm in Cambridge (hence cycling everywhere) and have 2 little DDs who would make a trip to the big smoke quite impossible. However I will phone Oxford St tomorrow and plead!
Did they look nice? And what about the mid guage cashmere? Did you buy anything- please 'fess up! [nosey emoticon]

Well I hope we're talking about the same thing, but I very very nearly bought a plum coloured trench that does look like the one in the picture. Didn't see the cashmere, sorry.

I love Jil Sander with a passion but the coast was really the only thing that floated my boat.
Was actually a bit disappointed.

Have just realised it was the Lightweght Taffeta one on hoochie's link. So not the same thing at all. But very nice all the same.

Thanks Squeaver, that helps. If I can't get my mitts on one easily I will try to convince myself that I'm having a grass is greener moment.

Anyone else on Uniqlo/ Jil Sander?

That was the one i wanted too Angelina sad. Maybe a couple will turn up on ebay.

ok I might be shot here but Asda had some nice looking (lined as well) trenches in a couple of weeks ago, not particularly fashion forward but would do the job and not look bad.

Oh, how I wanted the JIll Sander tuxedo one. Alas, only the minuscule can still ge tone and I am hefty ...

faustina Wed 07-Oct-09 12:46:43

try the website again - they restocked. I finally managed to buy the peacoat this morning.

Mumsnuttier Fri 09-Oct-09 18:05:49

not yet ... but i am lurking there almost as much as here ... grin

AngelinaJolly Fri 09-Oct-09 18:09:57

Me too. I keep checking in case someone returned one. No such luck... yet.

I even called HQ. They said there'd be new stock of new stuff but not of the coat I want. Sniff!
