That's it really. Has to work with work wardrobe of black and navy and red. I'm 5'11" (gah).

What's your budget?

This Hobbs trench is amazing...

Up to chokes £250 if its timeless and is going to last me several years. I like that trench. Luscious.

Oh, it's amazing. It's cut beautifully, is extremely flattering and is a nice weight.

Can you tell I want to buy it? grin

I'm 5ft11 and a size 10 with long arms and this fits like a glove in size S. It's a decent weight and much better quality than I'd usually expect of Gap. Admittedly, it's no investment buy, but it's only £59...

I was looking at that gap one online. I'm off to Cheltenham this afternoon to hopefully try on the Hobbs coat, so will have a nosey in Gap.

Love the cut of that BR coat lashing. Do you know if it would fit a tall person?

I tried it on and it was about knee length on me (5ft 6"). Arms were fine, can't remember much more tbh.

Assuming the model in the pic is at least 5ft 9ins you should be ok?
