I don’t wear coats, never cared for them. They certainly seem practical and I understand why one might prefer them.
Personally I layer, with an insulated leather jacket, and when it is really cold I wrap a scarf around my neck.
Some dont feel safe without a coat, others don’t like the pressure and constriction that comes with a scarf, but it is all I know.
It is the only way I know how to live in Winter. I suppose it is better that way, or maybe I just need to courage to try a coat for once?
