I've been thinking about this lately. This is the first fall/winter season I'm wearing an overcoat when outside. I used to be much heavier so I tolerated cold better, and SC + scarf + gloves would suffice. Now it doesn't. So in all my topcoat n00bness, I got a dark navy wool/cashmere overcoat, which looks similar to this:
I thought it would be quite versatile, but after wearing it with tweed or other odd jackets I think it looks weird - it seems the overcoat is on the "city" side of the spectrum, and what's underneath is on the "country" side.
Am I being overly paranoid, or should I get a different overcoat (tweed, camel hair...) for my odd jackets? An overcoat is a quite expensive garment for my income level and I'd rather not get a new one if I can get away with the navy...
