I'm on the hunt for: A quilted jacket

They were popular last Autumn and 2011's fall season doesn't look to be any different. And yes, I want one. My criteria? 
1. It must be black. 
2. It will preferably have elbow 'pads'. 
3. Have a cord collar. 

So you're probably thinking: "You've just listed the exact jacket from Topshop" and yes, I have. I've scoured all the possible high-street stores I can think of and this is the only one that comes close and I'm quite disappointed that there wasn't much competition. Last summer whilst working for Next, they had a very similar jacket which I fell in love with, but at the time (and with my earnings), it was a choice between the jacket and riding boots and the boots won (they are pretty spectacular though! But back to the jacket...!

H&M also had a similar version which came with the added option of belting the waist. I do love this Topshop jacket but the only thing that worries me is the straight shape of it. I've petite on top so a lot of clothing just swamps my figure and dis-proportions me (I hope that's a word, I think it is...). I think it's going to have to be a case of keeping an eye of new season stock everywhere and trying on all versions I come across. Let the battle begin. 

P.S If anyone does come across anything similar, please do let me know - it would be much appreciated!
