Help O stylish ones! Before my Barbour falls apart ideas please for where I can find a classic navy wool coat online. I'm 5'2", size 8-10 and would like something that sits mid thigh. I'm a Summer, wear a lot of green/blue so think a light navy would be good? I tried one on in Monsoon today but the navy was too dark, the collar too big and flappy, and it didn't have pockets. I have a budget of up to £200.00 for something classic that's going to last. Thanks in advance!

I have been eyeing up this one in store:

Saw it in person last year and loved the look but never tried it on because if it looked as good as on the hanger then I'd never take it off, I was far too poor for it.

I have the jigsaw one but from a previous year and with gold buttons. I can confirm it is indeed lovely.

Oh my word that's exactly what I want too! But for approx half that price grin

Thank you! I love the metal buttons and proper slanty pockets. Looks like it's worth every penny. I have form for making coats last decades! Sadly it's out of stock in either 8 or a 10 so if anyone else has ideas I'd be grateful.

The Jigsaw one is lovely, I saw in store the other day. I think their coats are great quality and last a longtime!

They do Jigsaw in John Lewis, might be In stock there?

Buy online and send it back if it wrong! I have a Jaeger one from their discount store at Bicester Village. They may have something similar on the outlet site or sale site. Excellent quality fabric.

This looks to be the last season one, not sure if thats what will be delivered but maybe with a shot.

Now I want that coat. I'll end up trekking all over London to find a size 12!!

Rinceoir I'm slightly convincing myself, I've more money this year but it's still a bit spendy confused

I have one from J Crew bought it in the sale a couple of years for a good price. They bring them out every year.
