MyImage purple coat with asymmetric collar

London, United K...






I’ve used “coat” in the title, but is it really a coat? Is it a jacket? Where’s the line drawn, anyway? It’s short like a jacket, but wool and warm like a coat, so I’m not quite sure what to call this.

The first thing you notice about this coat is that Big! Collar!! It’s a “whole lotta look”, but I totally dig it. Your mileage may vary! I’ve worn it out twice over the weekend already and the collar is great – it’s substantial enough and close enough to the neck that I don’t need a scarf!

This pattern appeared in the Winter 2011 MyImage magazine and it’s still available to buy if you fancy it (and holy crap, it’s on sale right now for €1.95/US$2.63, too)!.

Read way more about this coat “over at!”

    Awesome! I have often asked myself the same question about coat/jacket. I would call this a coat though :)
