Grey jacket help - quite specific

My trusty (and cheap as hell) grey jacket has developed a stain. I think its sharpie pen, and Ive tried everything to get it out with no joy.

I want to replace it but need something quite similar. Its super versatile.

Its a jersey type material but lined. Light grey, slight marl look. 3/4 sleeved. Blazer type collar, no buttons, hip length.

Obviously I know I wont find an exact copy, but anyone seen anything similar out there?

I want one exactly like this too. I can't find anything hip length in a casual style at the moment. Everything is too long or too formal.

I think I paid under a tenner for it from Primark expecting to get a couple of nights out out of it and here we are however many years later sad

I should have bulk bought.

I have this one - it washes brilliantly and has kept its shape well. Any good?

Oh thats nice! Almost identical to my old one. Ill pop into Miss Selfridges next week.

breathe good colour but I really want to avoid long sleeves, I get eczema on my hands and wrists and find 3/4 sleeves much more comfortable.

H&M have a grey marl jersey blazer I got it for £15 on special offer I think, usually c £20.

I have just been looking at jackets on the H & M website. Is this any good?

Saw a lovely one in topshop the other day but it might be a bit too long for what you're looking for

The h&m one looks good apart from te sleeves.

Iamastonished Sun 23-Apr-17 20:14:54

I like the sleeves. I find 3/4 length sleeves rather pointless. If I am cold enough to need a jacket I need my arms covering up.

TickledOnion Sun 23-Apr-17 21:02:51

I just roll up the sleeves as they suit me better 3/4. They usually have a nice contrast lining.

This from Wallis? I had a nice grey one from their with shorter sleeves last season, this one may be too neutral a colour?
