As she stepped out in a £69.99 quilted popper-front jacket from British label David Barry at the Royal Windsor Horse ShowWith her own personal dressmaker and a wardrobe worth thousands, one might expect the Queen to plump for expensive designer clothing.

But the thrifty monarch surprised onlookers when she stepped out in a £69.99 quilted popper-front jacket from British label David Barry at the Royal Windsor Horse Show today.

The navy coat is available from Debenhams and Her Majesty teamed hers – which features a slightly different tartan piping to the version listed online – with a tweed skirt, silk headscarf and Launer handbag.

Quick fix repairing a metal zip

Trade tricks how to repair a coat or jacket zipper





There’s a simple trick to save your zip and it works wonders!

  • Firstly imagine that the zip puller part is female and you insert the male part together to pull the zip up.
  • With a pair of pliers pinch the female part together so it moves only slightly say approx 1mm.
  • Now when you fit the zip together it will fit snug, pull it up and down.
  • It should last months and if the problem happens again, just do the same again.

It works every time for me, I often demonstrate this to people, its a little known trick of the trade.

Go on, try it and let us know how you get on!

A. It depends on what they’re made from

Your idea of a shower may be another’s drenching?

Waterproof garments are usually sports and outdoor activity related, often made from a waxed cotton or Gortex type waterproof fabric. General wear or Fashion clothing is rarely waterproof and it would state that in the advert and on the label.  Festival outerwear clothing is usually waterproof, think plastic macs and wellies.

Some fabrics are more waterproof than others, Wool is naturally water repellant therefore cloth made with a high wool content or all wool content as in Harris Tweed will keep you warmer and drier for longer.

If its waterproof it will say so in the advert as its a good selling point.  Outdoors country style outerwear typically worn by dog walkers and those who spend a lot of time outside can also be called ‘Stormwear’ as in our David Barry full length hooded riding coat in Navy or Olive.

If an item of clothing says its ‘Showerproof’ then it should keep you reasonably dry during a reasonable amount of rainfall but commonsense should prevail, if you stand under torrential rain for more than a few minutes you would most likely get wet.

Just wanted to let you know that the coatt has arrived safe and sound.

Just three words to describe it – fab-u-lous!!

Thank you and kind regards.  (Avril R. 24.8.15)

Australian Kangaroo in Snow

Never thought I’d see the day, a kangaroo in the snow! Check out these amazing pictures from buzzfeed. Our customers told us it was cold but we didn’t believe it until we saw these pics! We’ve still got great warm winter coats in stock at reduced prices and low shipping to Australia if you’d like a change.

We wanted to do something for you lovely ladies in Australia, Canada and USA who can’t get enough of our coats but distance means shipping costs can be quite shocking!  Many of you who buy 2 items per order either keep both, split the order with someone, buy two sizes in order to keep the one that fits and give other as a present so you don’t have to ship back (well done!).

Good news!  For Australia you’ll only pay £15 for up to 2kg (most orders weigh under 2kg); or £21 for up to 4kg per package.  You’ll be able to buy 2 coats or other item combinations and have our guarantee that you will not pay more than £21 if the combined items are under 4kg and that’s for a tracked package.

And for Canada and the USA, you’ll only pay £12 for up to 2kg and £18 for up to 4kg per package.

(We do ship to ‘Rest of the World’ starting at £19.95 for a 2kg package or £29.95 for a 3kg package.)

There is an order limit of 2 items per package but you can make as many orders as you wish!
