I love Boden but am not too keen on the pattern, colours and style of that piece. I think you will get better and cheaper elsewhere. I tried the sailor hoody in the sale (they still have them in green and white stripe on the sale section of the site). It was not worth the money and was too short in the body. I sent it back. I don't reckon boden is the place to go for leisure wear.
I have that top in the green and the teal. It is lovely quality and so, so warm. The green is a gorgeous colour. The teal one is a nice colour too, I just prefer the green. I would order your usual size if you are going to get one - definitely don't size up as I found it to be on the bigger size.
Does it have to have sleeves and hood? I have a wonderful gilet (gillet?) from Crew and it has a fake fur lining--more glam. than it sounds. It's really warm. I have worn it for weeks and weeks every year for the past four years.
A bit out of leftfield i know but this gorgeous North face Nuptse vest is just beautiful! So it is not a hoody, but it is fab for casual use. They are such useful little jackets. i wear mine so much from autumn to spring. Great for weekend outings where you are between cars and indoors. One of my best buys ever!
