My DH 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 JP 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.
