My Darling Husband isnt much help in offering opinions other than “looks fine” so thought I’d send this out to the bees for some real feedback! 🙂
I ordered two winter coats. Both are fitted at the waist. Coat 1 is a shiny material and thinner, Coat 2 is a matte material with a wool elastic band at the waist. Both about the same amount of warmth. Which one to keep?

sloflin7341: That first coat reminds me of Justice of the Peace from Grandmas Boy!!! Hahaha. Not that one… That is not the coat…
The 2nd one is beautiful. Flattering, comfy and warm. Very stylish. I think it would compliment a lot.

sloflin7341: To be honest, Coat 1 reminds me of a garbage bag that someone decided to make into a quilted material. Not teh look I would normally go for…

Definitely coat 2. The shininess of coat 1 reminds me of coats worn years ago.

I’m loving the matte one! It’ll go with anything and looks great on you.
The shiny one, I don’t know, I’m not loving the shine. Maybe it’s coming across shinier in pics than in real life, but I don’t like it nearly as much.

Coat 2 is classic. You can dress it up or wear it more casually.

This is helpful! Thanks for the feedback.

I don’t like either coat but I’d go with #2. It’s versatile and will take you through a cold winter. 😛

Definitely 2! A classic look that won’t go out of style, even if you wear it for years.

I’m in the minority, coat 1! Seems way more stylin’. #2 seems frumpy to me.

Coat 1 is too shiny and I don’t like the collar on it.

I’m not a fan of the shiny material of the first coat.
I think the second coat looks great on you! I would definitely keep that one!

I like them both on you! Although I’d gravitate to the second one because its simpler.
Although, if I had a simple coat already and was looking for a second I’d go with the first. I kinda like that its a bit edgier looking. Is it Moncler?

Coat 1 looks like something my 14 year old sister would wear to look edgy. Coat 2 looks more mature and classic. To me, I’m a bit noise sensitive, so Coat 1 just looks like it’d crinkle louder, and Coat 2 would be quieter when it moved, just by looks of the fabric. Idk how accurate that is, but I do know it drives me nuts when I buy clothing – can’t stand loud scritchy coats or jackets.
