M&S shoppers are going wild for aviator jacket dupe that looks just like £1k Whistles version but is £921 cheaper | The Sun09/30/2023
A WARM and cosy aviator jacket is a wardrobe essential – and let's face it, no autumn/winter collection is complete without one.
But more often than not, the staple coat can cost a small fortune…but the goods news is, it really doesn't have to.
That's because fashion fans have been sent into a frenzy after spotting a designer dupe of the Whistles 'Shearling Brooke Biker Jacket,' which retails at a whopping £1,199, in none other than M&S.
The high-street store's 'Faux Shearling Borg Lined Aviator Jacket' features the same relaxed fit with a belt and looks almost identical to the real deal – and is the perfect winter wardrobe essential to keep you warm throughout the colder months.
However, there's one major difference.
Rather than costing £1,199, the budget replica is priced at a more affordable £79 – meaning it's an impressive £921 cheaper than the original.

"Great, warm and stylish jacket. Looks good with jeans or a midi dress or skirt," wrote one.
A second penned: "Lightweight stylish jacket, size down so not to feel bulky. Really warm too so will be good in colder weather. Excellent value for money!"
A third commented: "It's excellent to go flying with the jacket. I can look a pro pilot with the jacket."
Meanwhile, a fourth added: "I wasn't sure about this initially as it was faux sheepskin, but it looks good quality, and the cut seems right.
"I think will get worn a lot once the weather gets colder."
Another chimed in: "Love love this jacket! It’s going to be lovely and warm for autumn and winter. Super comfortable too!"
Alternatively, New Look has a £59.99 version of the jacket. The Rust Leather-Look Borg Collared Crop Aviator Jacket has been rated 4.7 stars by customers.
