As the title suggest, where would you recommend I search for a coat to wear to work, as well as over jeans. At work I am usually sans suit and wearing a jumper and flat front trousers.

I would like to have something in Grey/Charcoal or Brown with perhaps a Herringbone pattern. Ideally something versatile is what I am driving for here. Aiming to spend under £300 and willing to wait until the New Year to benefit from markdowns.

This has some potential but I tried it on and it seemed a little light and unstructured:

This seemed better suited but outside the budget:

Appreciate your input

I like the 2nd one. Hugo Boss quality is outstanding!

@ Checkerboard: Those prices are very attractive! I may just nip out to the store down here and try on for size.

@ Johnpark: I actually had a 30% off voucher for a private sale at Hugo Boss but it expired :(
rookie mistake

Tommy Hilfiger overcoats are quite good; I've had one for a few years that looks equally good in a work or social environment.

Don't want to hijack the thread, but I noticed Hugo Boss coats offered in sizes between 46-54, then 102 and 106. I am not familiar with these. Can someone explain?
