    Woollen Coat or Down Jacket for 14 month old boy

    It's freezing so I want to buy my 14 month old son a woollen coat or warm down jacket as quickly as possible! I have tried Zara, Togs Unlimited and H&M to no avail. I am specifically looking for a very warm coat or jacket as opposed to just a hooded top or cotton knit jumper as my little one loves to play outside in the freezing cold. Has anyone purchased anything like this recently and, if so, where??

    sherwes,

    I haven't seen them lately either.

    Have you tried the Morley 100% Merino Wool underwear for your baby? My 18 months boy is wearing it everyday with a sweater and a jacket if we go out. He hates to wear big and thick that restrains him from moving freely.

    btw, Sogo & Apita carries them.

    Have you tried Stanley Market or Wing On?

    Have you gone to the 4th floor of Princes Building where all the children's shops are?

    Simon, I've called Mothercare and there are no down/puffer jackets left in HK!

    Southside, I haven't checked stores other than the ones I have mentioned. The purpose of my post was to try to find out whether anyone had purchased something fitting my description recently so that I don't have to look in every shop (I am a typical time poor mummy - like you I am sure!!). Have you seen these types of jackets at Stanley (usually when I go there they have hoodies or raincoats but not woollen jackets or down jackets)?

    Chickeeduck has some very cool looking down jackets, definitely worth a look.

    I had exactly the same problem as mu bub spends a lot of time outside at the park with the dog. After looking everywhere (Stanley and all the places you list), I found one at the bennetton outlet at Tung Chung. Wind/water proof and lined with fleece (and pretty). They had a reasonable selection and as Louisouis says, I think the Chickee Duck there did as well (more woollen jackets though). The other brand that I find does good jackets is Comme Ca (Princes building and Lee Gardens) - but I haven't checked there recently.
