That would be fab SJ- bet they smell great on the fire too!

Hula- the jacket in the pic is the boden one. What happened was that saturday morning a barbour brochure dropped through the letterbox. DH saw me drooling over some of the coats in there and said if i was only going to use the boden one for a little while but then still want a barbour it was false economy. So size 12 and size 14 Boden coats are now packed up ready to be sent back having only ever been modelled in the house and i went and bought a rose utility barbour from JL saturday morning. a definate keeper- already been out on a dog walk!

Lots of Barbour buying going on here ;)
Just bought a sage Bedale on Friday to complement my collection which includes a black Bedale and the aforementioned Rose Utility jacket in olive.
I LOVE Barbour!!!

So, what's your take on the wax staining things?
I wore the sage Bedale the other day with a Pliage tote and the back looks quite stained now (being fabric I don't care as I can wash it).
I think it will be a while until I feel comfortable using it with leather bags.

Hula, isn't it just. I hate buying coats with a passion, I can never find what I want.

I'm looking for a knee length swingy shaped coat in black or grey, single breasted with a small or no collar. What's the betting there's nothing like that around this year?!

I was planning on trying my pliage tote with the wax cotton jacket also, then either choc antony- under the jacket or ivy bays in hand! Wouldn't dare use an oak bag with it!!!

^^^ I want something quite casual, as thats what I wear most of the time. Has to be lined as well, for cold winter mornings. I ordered a parka from Oasis but didnt like it. Ive also ordered one from White Stuff but its not come into stock yet.

^^Me neither. That's the only downside to a/w, the annual hunt for the perfect coat. I usually end up just wearing thick jumpers & lots of scarves & dashing from the car to the office or house!

^^^ I know what you mean, last year I never found my perfect casual thick winter coat, and ended up wearing a really thin jacket with about 10 layers underneath!
