    just a thought

    Labcoats are usually plain white, green or blue ...usually with a few pockets on the side...sometimes with a collar ...other times with a belt....but usually pretty unfitted and always crucial for labwork!

    We usually get no choice in how much we want to pay for a basic labcoat and end up paying up to 20 pounds more for a new one! (incase we lose it)

    I wonder whether there would be a market for slightly more funkier ones, inexpensive but still professional looking !!

    Having a plain labcoat is fairly important so you can see if you get anything on it.
    Having said that, tie-dyed would be epic

    I would never buy anything, let alone a lab coat, which was described to me as "funky".

    That said, my lab coat does have fake blood splattered over it which looks pretty awesome.

    Yes! This is what I was thinking about when I said funky ....perhaps some gold buttons/sequins to make it look pretty ....guess this is more applicable to some girls

    As per 'Phalanges's comment .....I have a feeling some medics may have a different idea of funky!

    aKarma has raised a good point....it is important to see if anything gets on it so having it plain white would be ideal...but then Im sure even if it is slightly jazzed up...will still be visible if something gets on it ..infact it would takeaway the emphasis of the big bloch/stain on a plain white coat

    Do most people have their own coat or get them from the uni box for the practical?

    Oh yea I also wrote on a friend's lab coat that he was gay, he wasn't amused lol.

    I think as long as it is white to begin with any designs you make will still show up any dodgy stains.

    I like the idea of the gold buttons and perhaps a design on the pocket and the trim of the coat and cuffs. I kinda like the rest of it plain white though.

    I have my own but I borrowed the lab coats when I was too lazy to bring mine in. They usually had suspicious stains and used tissues in the pockets . euw

    Our college ones were plain white.. initially. I think most people just wrote all over one another's with various comments of varying hilarity, including such classic comments as "insert penis here" on the lower back.
    Mine is looking considerably more awesome since it has been transformed in to a dead mad zombie scientist type affair for Halloween..
