A 'find me a' thread: wool blazer

Your mission!
I'd like a blazer:
ideally wool to keep me warm (or wool rich)
ideally in HoC summer colours (not black)
no epaulettes
single breasted
no pockets on the chest
not cropped (am tall and will look like I'm dressing up)

I do have a budget, but am open to all links and ideas for suggestions.

There are NONE. Blazers are impossible this year because everything is 'boyfriend' (i.e. they couldn't be assed to bother with fitting it), 'cropped' (i.e. they were scrimping on fabric), 'Chanel-esque' (i.e. less work as no collar or darts) or has a bloody peplum.

That is my conclusion. And I cannot abide peplums.

I wouldn't mind a simple boyfriend cut, but they are all viscose or polyester.

Boden? 100% wool, though tweed.

or this? Plainer colour, again tweed, again 100% wool.

I swear by the Gap tweed/Herringbone ones from a few years ago. There are usually lots of them on eBay. As Hopefully says, brands don't seem bothered about correctly fitting their blazers these days. Ooh, Zara have some properly fitted ones, actually.
