vintage duffle coat

vintage duffle coat

I feel like I just struck gold. I've been looking for a coat like this for ages but the closest I could get were these Gloverall coats which are way out of my price range. It fits me perfectly and didn't cost me an arm and a leg! If you told you guys how much I paid for it I'd probably get rocks thrown at me :3

Check out this neat article about duffle coats via the Lark About blog. Ideally I'd want another one of these coats in red or mustard but my black one is good enough for me! It even has a hood and smells weird after getting wet ahhhh.

Hi! My name is Kait. I think I must be neighbors with your bf because he lives right by Lucca and so do I! It's great to hear where you guys hang out in the Mission because I'm new to the area. Have you tried Range yet? Pricier than Delfina but soooo good! Get the spare ribs!

I'm so jealous and I'm dying to know how much it was! I promise not to throw rocks. :)

Unknown said...

The coat is really cute and goes just wonderfully well with your striped shirt!

OH man that is such a cute coat!!... Too bad it's turning into summer on my hemisphere! It always feels like we're a beat behind in the fashion world but you keep me up to date :)

By the way - I've posted a whole bunch of new photos if you're interested in looking at what I get up to in my little city of Christchurch in the bottom of the world :) If only I were as stylie as yourself... cheers lovie!

Kate said...

Beautiful jacket ans striped shirt :)

Dirty Hair Halo said...

I think the way the toggles stand out on that jacket really does it for me. That sentence sucked and I can't fix it(I've been trying).

I had a couple beers...

le blog de leen said...

you look lovely in that coat, so cute :)


Elena said...

Firt of all, I've found your blog a few days ago and I really love it! you're so sweet! and you and your boyfriend make such a cute couple! :)

I'd been looking for a hooded duffle coat for a long time too and this autumn I found the perfect one at Zara Kids and the price was perfect too! I got mine in navy blue with the inside part light blue checked (I don't know if it's said like that¿?). They have it also in beige-light brown... maybe you can check it out and see if you like it. Mine was 50€, I bought it in Spain so it will be a little more expensive there but I think it still will be a good price.
and it does smell good! ;)

love from Spain,

Sadly, I have poor student syndrome; if money grew on trees my sickness would be cured, and I could purchase adorable jackets like yours :)

btw, I wanted to know what camera you used to take photographs :3

love your blog

Kathryn Sutton said...

I love duffel coats and this one is particularly wonderful! I do so want to know how much it cost you, the cheaper the better, it will fill me with hope that I can find one too!

I'm getting a DSLR for Christmas and was wondering how you decided which one to get?? I'm torn between the Nikon D5000 and Canon 450D - I want the Nikon but already have lenses for a Canon.... Argh!

Great coat! My brother has one similar to that. I'd love to claim it as my own, if it only fit me.

I love this coat, and especially the classic french sailor shirt pairing! The length of the arms on the jacket is perfection! Congrats :)

I also linked you photo on my blog,

Delphine said...

hi, first comment on your blog, although i love and read religiously your food and outfit posts!
funny you should talk about how expensive gloverall duffle coats are, as I still have mine from when I was 11, and not only is it still in perfect condition, it still fits me (well i'll be honest, it is a little short at the sleeves), and I am pretty sure I am a larger size than you are (in European sizes I am a 38, which is somewhere around an american 4 I guess, and I am 1m64cms), so you should give kids sizes a try, as they are waaaaay cheaper than ladies duffle coats (89£ VS 235£ for an adult coat), and they have such cute colours... and no I don't work for gloverall!

Not sure where to post this but I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of National Clicks?

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.
