i posted about this coat here way back in August. Didnt buy it, shouldve I know but now need to go to town and see if they have any left, none on the website so I dont hold out much hope.

Just wondered if anyone would offer to look in their local Warehouse and if theyve got one get it for me and I will post cheque straight to you.

Thanks loads, will let you know tomorrow if I got one (we have 3 warehouse's here)

Now I can't help as I live in Sweden, but let this serve as a warning to all you posters who dither over buying something you really, really like.

Don't dither, just buy it.

With your permission, I will quote your story in years to come.

As a warning to ditherers.

The link on the other thread doesn't work for me. What did the coat look like,/colour/price etc??

mosschops30 · 18/10/2006 21:51

Yes MMM, it could become the mosschops law of shopping

stating 'just buy it, because if you really cant afford it or change your mind you can always get a refund, however you cannot buy a coat that has now sold out'

fuzzy it was a black moleskin, military style jacket, £60

I'll have a look in oxford street next week (am off this week), will let you know if it's available there.
BTw does this mean it's made of real moles???

God, my Mum is always saying 'get it or regret it'. She's right, dammit!! Hope you can get it.

MS what size are you after ???

You know the materials shop where I work was selling moleskin diaries, I wondered if they were made of real mole skin too.....just curious really, and suffering from lack of sleep.
