That other skirt is really short!! I like the tartan but i dont like where it falls on the model because of its shortness tbh. Boden also do some sweet A-line skirts...but not as short as the one you have posted but still worth a look:
The boden ones do come in a variety of lengths. It depends upon how tall you are. I agree that some a-line skirts can look a bit frumpy. Certainly not below the knee. For me at 5ft 5 i tend to wear anything from 18 inches - 21 inches. If you are young and like to wear them short..go for it!
Have you tried Hobbs? I've not looked recently but they certainly used to do an A-Line, above-the-knee, wool skirt year after year. Not cheap but very good quality and they may have them on their outlet website.
