Tweed Jacket

I would love to find a fitted tweed jacket (perhaps a Harris Tweed). I'm 5.11 , size 14, need generous length in the arms and not too short in the body. I love the look of Jack Wills Austerberry blazer (not sure how to link) , but their 14 (the biggest) is too tight and a tad short for me - I also felt like the shop assistant granny!!

Can anyone help ?

Have you tried Joules? There's a 15% off and free p&p code knocking around.

Marking my place here in case you get some more replies. I am the same size and on the look out for one too!

Saw a nice one on a Sainbury's advert. Looked more expensive than the £30 it was.

Have you looked at the boden tweed blazer? The reviews are saying it has long sleeves for a change!

Tried that one on mrgary. It looks very nice and was the right shape, arms right length etc although I may have moved the button. It's very dark brown though. 25% off at the moment too.

Sainsburys are def copying Joules ' look this season. Really nice stuff. Who'd know the difference. And with 25% off...

I bought the Sainsbury's jacket yesterday and wore it on school run this morning. 4 people asked where was it from. I never get this! And it had 25% off. Bargain

I bought the Sainsbury's one and love it. I am also 5'11 and it fits me bettee than the boden one which was too short. And us SO much cheaper!

I saw the Sainsburys one and didn't like it. Thought it looked very cheap (which it was!).

Many thanks all, like the look of the Boden one, but will definitely pop in to Sainsbury and see what theirs is like .

If you can get to London, there is a shop Thomas Farthing, near the Britush Museum (on Museum Street) that has some really beautiful real Harris Tweed jackets for women. They are a good price for the quality.

Well, tried on Sainsbury jacket , afraid the sleeves were a bit short meaning the elbow patches were too high up (so couldn't have dropped the hem) .

Re the London shop -afraid I'm at the other end of the country , closer to where they actually make Harris tweed!!

Thanks all
