Where do you get your jeans and what coat are you wearing this year! I have AN HOUR to shop next Friday, I usually wear Topshop Baxter jeans but find they gape at the back.

Haven't had a winter coat for two years

Oh, and I'm 30

I'm 5'8.5" and M+s 5 pocket jeggings fit perfectly on my legs in a size 8, but do need a belt

5'9" and 8-10
I often buy premium jeans, but have got Levi i-ds in the last year, one skinny and one straight leg pair and they're great. I've found them on offer though so have only paid abiut £40 on them.

Coats... again I tend to buy expensive and have a few so I can rotate iykwim. But my warmest coat is a down filled Barbour gold label, and I will be wearing it this year for the 3rd winter....

French Connection and ted baker for coats.

Jeans from French Vonnection as well, mind you I don't really need anything more than 34 inch as despite being taller than you most of my height is in my torso and I have relatively short legs for my height.

I really recommend Jack Wills jeans, fantastic quality for the price, I have a pair which are 6 years old and they still look brand new. Can't recommend them enough.

See I just can't get my shoulders into either Barbour or French Connection coats, and the sleeves are a couple of inches too short sad. Shame as there was a gorgeous navy blue wool coat in FC last year... May be I just have extremely broad shoulders and gorilla-like arms! grin

And I agree with the M&S jeggings recommendation! Really soft and comfy, too.

5'10" daughter has just tried Tall range from Next for Jeans. Only seems available online at the mo' but fits perfectly and she is really pleased!

I get all my tall stuff from Next.

This is my winter coat this year - the sleeves are crazy long, I love it.

Probably too late but I am 5 ft 9 (and a half!) 10 on bottom mostly and 8ish on top. I have bought jeans in Zara- their coated skinnies are great and they have them back in. I also got a fab grey coat in there last week that was plenty long enough. Also, I have recently bought 2/3 pairs of Diesel skinnies- great cut and plenty long enough in the leg. Bit more expensive than some others on high street but worth it in my opinion.

5'11" size 8/10 here - I find Gap's long trouser lengths work well. And Zara's come up super long too. I still need a proper coat though. Have a down filled one from Zara but I think the proportions are a bit off - the waist & pockets are higher than I'd like.

Just discovered that Very do a tall range. Not sure what the quality is like but the prices are very good, so might be worth a look.
