    Hi guys/girls,

    I'm seriously questioning myself which coat would suit me better as seen in the pictures below:

    Now I'm a 25 year old, 80kg, 1.90m guy with small hips (as so my gf tells me, bummer), so I usually pick tailored clothing. But with dufflecoats, this does not matter that much I believe. Now the first coat you see is a Boss Orange one, the second a Burberry. They are both the same width: 54 cm. The Burberry is 85 cm long, the Boss 80cm long. Both same price.

    I think the Boss is more sporty, the Burberry more...manlier? My clothing style is combinable with both.

    So just from your opinion, which one is more suited for me?

    You need to demonstrate them being worn - on this basis whichever you like.

    either or would look good i'm sure. the style is great on both but i'd lean towards the boss just for those hooks.

    Welcome to Styleforum MoiAbsolu.
    I own a peacoat by Boss and 2 duffles; 1 by Butberry and 1 by Gloverall. As it turns out, my old Burberry was made by Gloverall anyway. I am partial towards Gloverall. I agree with GBR. Let's see some fit pics if possible and we'll be happy to tell you what suits you. If that is your pwn face in your avatar, I would wager either or both would suit you equally. The rope and wood toggles on that Boss is classic. I would wager that Burberry in the photo has the leather & horn toggles. Even nicer, provided the leather strips are maintained and in good condition.
