Navy semi-fitted jacket - any ideas?

I have been unable to find a navy semi-fitted jacket I like that doesn’t have buttons, isn’t waterfall shaped or cropped.
Three quarter sleeves too if possible.
It needs to be just like this black Quiz jacket, ideally, and not cost over £50.

Can anyone help please?

For ages, ben de lisi for principles did a version of this made of lined jersey and you could shut it with a tiny hook and eyelit. I had two of them. But they were twice (3 x?) the price of that dunnes one and not much more solid.

here, obviously the dunnes one is a bargain

Wouldn't you be better off with a cardigan

tempted by this one. It would give any outfit with jeans a suggestion of smartness

wrong shape maybe?

I work in an office where this is a bit too much but this might raise an eyebrow

Fine line peeps. I have a collection of almost-smart jackets now.

Monsoon tend to have exactly this style, they have 20% off at the moment

Thank you so much for your helpful suggestions.

I like the cardigan best, (thanks Runrabbit) - it's exactly the length and style I'm looking for, but alas they've sold out of navy ones - just my luck.

I'll keep plodding on...

Any other ideas please?

Fatface regularly do a jacket with 3/4 length sleeves, sort of rolled up but ironed and pressed and fixed with a seam folded up! So looked smart casual..... why do I keep getting images of steve coogan in his pants on a table.

They regularly have a version of that jacket. I have it in rust.

Thanks to all.
I've ordered the one from Simply Be.
