Coat Recommendations?

Post by The Wisp on Fri Oct 31, 2014 6:32 pm

With November literally just around the corner, I need to get a new, nice-looking, better fitting coat to wear. Something I could comfortably wear in 30-55 degree F weather (~ 0-15 degrees C). What do you all think would go well with my current style (pictures of myself are in the rate my style thread)? I need a feel for a general style or styles of coat that will look good on me.

My first instinct is something like these:






Other ones I found that I think would also go well, in order of preference:









Basically, elements that I think would work well:

- warm colors
- nothing too structured or sleek (you don't want to look like a businessman or a private eye)
- more a natural look - wool, (brown) p/leather, possibly fur (fake as desired)
- I think a double-breasted look would go nicely, but that might just be my inclination toward double-breasted peacoats piping up there.

Autumnflame's first pic would be my top choice for you, but I like a peacoat or brown leather jacket too. I wouldn't think pleather would be warm enough, even though you're only going down to 0 C, unless you're pretty warm-blooded (or are there warmer versions I haven't heard about?)

I think Autumnflame's leather jacket (second one, first non-broken to me) and the DHGate.com hunting jacket would be good. A little vintage, a little not your standard.

Ah, the first pic must not allow hotlinking. Here it is again:

Double-breasted coats of any kind look amazing - especially ones around hip-mid thigh length, with a decent width of collar.

Thanks everyone! I like the look of the double breasted coats, so those will probably what I try out first. Your other, more specific advice has been helpful as well!

Now I just have to go try a bunch on (ugh) to see what fits.

I'll update you all once I pick one out.

Are you looking for a sport coat? Or something heavier? Reboot's ideas look solid, but for way colder weather than I ever experience.

A-are you serious? I was appalled that everyone was suggesting these coats as if they'd keep you from freezing November onwards, until I saw the temperature range he's looking for. Yes, I am aware that some people live in warm places, but I don't really believe it. Razz

It's 64 degrees in Orlando, and I'm freezing. We'll be back in the 80s by Tuesday.

So maybe I shouldn't be in a coat discussion. Razz
