I would never have expected tween to make a critique based on utility and traditional outfit coherence like that, but he's right

None of this makes any sense.

Melton wool is used heavily in pea coats, which are worn traditionally at sea by seamen (easy, colabear). There is nothing wrong with wearing a heavy wool coat in a cold storm. It keeps you warm, and the wool is thick enough to withstand a moderate downpour without becoming soaked. Think of where wool comes from... teacha.gif Would I wear one in constant, pouring rain for hours on end? No - and I don't think stitch is going to be getting rained on heavily in his store.

One does not have to put on a sweater in order to wear a coat. Both, at the same time, could be too warm. A sweater by itself could work, but not when the weather is bad. A warm, wool coat seems like a great idea instead.

i think moo made some good points. crazy right? lol no hate moo.

i was considering wearing a brown v-neck merino wool sweater on top of the shirt, but in my store where i sit all day, i would be too warm. and taking on and off a sweater is not like a SC.

the coat actually does really well in up to moderate rain. iirc, when i bought the coat, i read on the BB website that the wool is woven in a crepe type form or something, and its meant to cause water to bead and wipe off, and it actually does just that. so outside of a downpour, its a great coat to wear in the rain when just going to and from your car, if its rainy and cold.

i guess i could have thrown on the sweater just for the pic, but that would be slightly disingenuous, and no one here would do that right? wink.gif

anyhow, i appreciate the feedback greatly, and outside of the functionality where we may disagree, the question is, what do you think about the fit style wise, with and without the duffel coat?

I don't see why stitches has to make a contribution in this thread to participate. It's not like only people that contribute participate and it's not like there was no circle jerkin before stitches.

Maybe teger is sad no one jerks his circle

again, as kunk has pointed out, is that stitches almost passive agressive niceness and the fact that the replies to every post ever derails threads.

oh I'm not claiming to know any historical context concerning whether what he's wearing is "right" or "wrong", I'm just saying it doesn't look good to wear a big duffel coat with just a cheerful green gingham shirt in my eyes.  and I know you can wear them in the rain, i have in the past, but in my mind he just should've worn something else entirely if he wanted the warmth provided by a cotton shirt and heavy wool coat + rain protection.  maybe i just have too many clothes and prefer layering, who knows.

 

I just used the context of functionality to explain why i thought it looked bad to someone who I assumed approached things in terms of functionality, more so than a lot of people here would.

aha, i see what you mean, more now. and yes, i do have a functional approach to a lot of things. the coat was more for functionality in the rain, walking to my car, and then from the garage, to work. i spoilered it for that reason, it was just to show what else i was wearing.

my "fit" was really just the trou and shirt.

thanks for clarifying. and yes, i have noticed you are a strong supporter of layering. smile.gif

in stitches, at least use multiquote or edit instead of double posting

i do use multi quote. i just did above. however, when multiple topics are covered, i split them up. i think it makes it easier for people to read things that belong together. and to reply, without having to cut and adjust the post they are quoting, or ending up quoting a long post, that is half filled with something irrelevant to what they are replying to.

i dont think its a bad system, personally. i will adjust if the crown favors your approach. maybe. wink.gif
