Hey guys,

I'm tallish and thin, approx 6'0" 10.5 stone. Not a big guy.

I struggle to find coats that fit on the high st so I was just wondering if any of you guys can recommend one for me?

Budget and any preferences regarding fit and style would be helpful.

Budget £100-150, fit athletic/slim if this makes sense.

Style, well this is my current day-to-day jacket http://www.jackjones.com/gb/en/jj/jackets/puffer-jackets/quilted-puffer-jacket-12109636.html?cgid=jj-outerwear-puffer&dwvar;_colorPattern=12109636_Nightshade_519666

Definitely needs to be warm since it's bloody freezing right now.

Haha yes in some ways. I'm a bit ignorant to the fashion world outside of the usual topman/h&m/river island.

COS a good shout.

Be careful of FUK, can lead to crazy debt. (Unless you're minted) only spend three figs on shoes and coats.

I would look at getting a duck down pal, lightweight yet pretty warm and look great open too.
