SAD FART Advice needed on money claim

Hi all
I need some advice. I purchased a branded coat for my son last year at a cost of £115. it's an insulated winter coat that has been worn at best 6 months (it's not winter all year round). I've returned the coat to JD sports for an inspection and I have found holes in the fabric in several places and also the colour has faded under the arms to a grotty brown colour. They've rejected my position and I'm considering a money claim as I don't believe the goods have lasted a reasonable period of time - I've had supermarket coats that have lasted significantly longer than this. The jacket - a Nike Advance 15 is listed as being "durable" by Nike. It's been discontinued in this colour but is still on sale in another colour. Am I being unreasonable to have expected it to last longer than 14 months time - surely "wear and tear", like a car, should only be based on the actual wear or use of the item rather than the period of time it has been owned.

Addicted to saving money :j (or just tight)
