I only buy coats on the high street. I was disabused of this theory when my mother one year very sweetly bought me a posh coat for my birthday, which was lovely thanks, Mum! And I get it, of course I do. Coat manufacturers spend more time making their coats look pretty because prettiness tempts consumers more quickly than practicality, which is why I own about 12 coats I can't wear and have met more sociopathic weirdos than a person should know in five lifetimes.
But there comes a point when covered buttons and sociopathy just don't do it for you any more, no matter how pretty the buttons or eyes. You want something or someone that makes you feel, I don't know, content. But does that mean sacrificing prettiness? Settling for spinach and forsaking chocolate cake? No, Marla, it does not.

I was now warm and a worm , yes, but the feeling it brought of having been essentially dehumanised somewhat mitigated the sense of pleasure. So, warmth and attractiveness can go together.

First, make sure the coat is of a length that will work with the rest of your wardrobe: Only get a coat with big pockets, otherwise you will lose your gloves and hat within a month, guaranteed.
Ensure the coat properly does up all the way not a given with a duffle coat — you need a zip or snaps as well as the toggles. And, most of all, get a coat with a hood.
