A Winter coat, full length & wool please

Can you help me find a new winter coat (or rather DH as it might be my Christmas present). Then I could get a handbag from the DC that will go with it.

I like a warm wool coat, preferably mid shin but will go as short as mid thigh, but I do like a longer coat.

I am 5 foot (and half an inch), a bit plump with small norks but wide back. Normally size 10/12, but definately a 12 with a coat so it will fit over jumpers etc.

Thinking of teal (but more green than blue) instead of a black or brown coat. Has anyone got any suggestions or should I go for a black coat as at least it won't clash with other clothes.

Colours: Strong bold colours do suit. But definately not yellow, light brown or anything pastel.

Thank you

Hi I got this one from Whistles
teal coat.
I am 5ft7 and it is knee length for me. I don't buy black coats either, its a bit boring, go for a strong colour and teal is very in this season.
