My reluctance stemmed from the look. They can be bulky and not very flattering. Some of the shiny ones make you look like you're wearing a trash bag. There are times that Michelin Man look are unavoidable.
Useless trivia: The Michelin Man has a name. It's "Bibendum."
Back to the coat... even though the look isn't the greatest, they are warm. The big plus, in my book, is the weight. They are light as a feather, pardon the pun. I like that.
I do save puffy coat appearances for the really cold weather and it looks like we'll have some of that this week.
As regular readers know, I feel the movie "A Christmas Story" is hugely over-rated. Yes, it's cute and amusing. Once. The part that I do like is watching everyone in their heavy wool winter wear. That's what we had when we were kids. It was heavy, uncomfortable, and itchy. If you encounter a winter hater, chances are they had to wear that stuff when they were kids. Thank heaven for down, fiberfill, and Thinsulate.
