couldn't find ANYTHING I liked last year so made do

I want something not too heavy as I am on public transport a lot and will roast

Maybe a long macish thing with removable lining but NOT fogeyish

Anyone got any suggestions

i just got a coat from laredoute. they have some really nice ones in their new collection and really reasonably priced.

I'm crap at styleee stuff but friend at the end of the road (infinitely more stylish than me) said some of the stuff in M&S looked good!

They're probably shopping, CD. Found this , though it doesn't actually meet your description. Some macs on the Debenhams site, but none with removable lining.

CD It is bloody disgusting that the mnetters are too busy cleaning their dining rooms to give urgent assistance
I have been watching this thread for advice and I am appalled by their lack of urgency

CountessDracula · 04/10/2006 11:17

Hmm not really fan of that green soz

I have a divine one i bought from Mexx years ago that I love but it has fallen to pieces

Daisy it is bloody disgusting isn't it?

WTF do they think they are doing?

JackieNoHeadJustABloodyStump · 04/10/2006 11:18

Fair enough - what sorts of colours do you like. Lots of black and red around.

CountessDracula · 04/10/2006 11:19

Black would be best I guess

Ooh have just remembered I have a lovely vintage brown suede one somewhere must dig out

OP posts:
JackieNoHeadJustABloodyStump · 04/10/2006 11:19

Black one
red one ?

JackieNoHeadJustABloodyStump · 04/10/2006 11:20

Another black one

JackieNoHeadJustABloodyStump · 04/10/2006 11:21

OOh - dark purple ?

HuwEdwards · 04/10/2006 11:22

dunno about white tho

bossykate · 04/10/2006 11:22

cd, i've just bought this in red - was featured in eve fashion recently. i think it is good value for the money - i saw a similar one recently for £179. good quality too.

JackieNoHeadJustABloodyStump · 04/10/2006 11:23

More black - bit shiny, not sure if that's good or not - would need to see in rl, I think.

CountessDracula · 04/10/2006 11:25

jackie I should have said, no belts

I look like sack of potatoes in belted things as have no waist

BK I quite like that but don't want brown or ecru or red really

OP posts:
foxinsocks · 04/10/2006 11:32

I love this M&S one (well I love the blue colour) but it's probably too warm for public transport

I have a black mac from sainsburys that isn't belted and it's done me proud!

I quite like this one aswell - it's not a coat I would wear but would probably see it on someone else and think it looked good.

JackieNoHeadJustABloodyStump · 04/10/2006 11:33

Oh bother. Sorry! Right - I suspect that this is too casual (and maybe too warm) but that this wouldn't be warm enough?

CountessDracula · 04/10/2006 11:35


A bit too smart maybe?

I only want it to wear to and from work and occasionally at toher times

quite like this never heard of lands end are thye for grannies?

OP posts:
CountessDracula · 04/10/2006 11:36

jackie that second one is same as first

how funny we both found lands end at same time

I do like that one you psoted but the lining doesnt' come out

OP posts:
JackieNoHeadJustABloodyStump · 04/10/2006 11:37

They are a bit, in places, but I have some OK stuff from them - you just have to pick and choose. Pretty good quality, imo.
