fair point and egregious probably wasn't entirely the right adjective to frame your and @clemente21 position so apologies if it came across overly harsh. it looks cozy to me, like it's a early winter weekend and you're running out to pick up coffee. the hood and the collar keep your neck warm. i'd wear this and have in the past in some iteration. maybe not to dinner, but certainly to run errands on a quiet day or to grab some brunch with my SO.Curious way to represent what we/I said.
Egregious? No. I just don't feel like it showcases it well. Again, coat over sweats? I've done it myself.
I guess if I were trying to be more pointed about what I don't care for here I would say:
I like the point you made about a grey tonal outfit as a canvas for the coat. I think what gets me is the hoodie. I don't think I would have had the same feeling had everything else in the outfit been the same, save a grey crewneck replacing the hoodie. The hood itself adds too much visually up top, IMO; almost a competing collar to that of the coat. I will say that I have never cared for the "hoodie under another piece of more traditional outerwear" look, and I love hoodies-just not like that.
