Hey there,
I need a jacket for the winter but I have a really tight budget, about 45 euros. I'm in Paris for a few days so I thought maybe someone knows of a good place. A problem I often have with coats or jackets is that the sleeves are too long. Yes, I have short arms.

A winter coat for 45 € in Paris? You're dreaming.

Maybe Uniqlo or The Gap, if you're lucky.

Well I heard there were stores where you can get good quality very cheaply, either because it's stock leftover or because it has been worn before

Why didn't the people you heard it from give you names and addresses, then?

Well I know such stores exist in New York so I thought those may exist in Paris.

For a gentleman farmer's jacket, try the hipism section of the Go Sport at Forum Les Halles.
