Jacket with elbow patches

I must admit at once that I am a college lecturer, and as such, I must of course wear jackets with elbow patches.

I just can't find any in the shops at the moment that aren't brown based. I want one that is black, grey, or blue based. Anyone seen any?

Joules had a blue one, tweedy but soft slightly stretchy fabric, it was really lovely, but didn't get it as didn't actually need it. Saw it a few months ago, probably spring stock but you might be able to find it still.

Might be the wrong time of year but have seen loads in Zara previously.

I've found the one Delphinum was talking about (I think):|CHAMBRY

I love it, but I have a big bum and am worried that the cut would make it look bigger - what do you think?

Could some kind sole tell me about sizing with Joules?
I'm 5'11", size 12 with long arms, legs etc.
I love the look of these jackets, but don't want to be disappointed yet again due to body length and arm length. TIA

Yes thats the one. I think the sizing was slightly on the snug side. I'm 5'4, short waisted, and am usually an 18, but would size up for this as it was a bit tight round the bust.
Saythatagain, it might come up a bit short on you, as the proportions were right on me, but it might be worth trying, its such a lovely jacket, and now it's on sale- am tempted !

I bought this in the sale recently - I'm 5 foot 7 and just right on arm length . It's lovely and very easy to wear and comfortable - low stock on line but worth in the shops if you have one near you . Try it - you can always return it !

I have ordered the navy one smile

The navy one has arrived and is fabulous. Just have to stop myself ordering the brown one too.

I waited and finally managed to get one in my size in the navy. It is lovely! The stretchy fabric is so comfy.
I am five foot five and the arms are a little long on me, but the length of the jacket is fine. I am usually a 14 but ordered a 16 as that's all that they had in stock, and the 16 is a good fit.
Like curtains I just have to stop myself from ordering one in the chambray now!!
