In my opinion, the hood is an additional convenience. It can carry both a decorative function and a functional one – protect it from cold and wind.
I like quality and good-quality clothes. My position is this: one good thing is better than a few mediocre ones.
When choosing a coat you need to pay attention to the seams. High-quality seam should be sewn with thin stitches with small stitches. If they are under a lining, they need to be probed.
If the coat is made of faux fur, and you can not find the seams, then the strips are glued together. This option is short-lived.
If your choice fell on a product made of wool fabric, you need to look at it in the light. It should be tight.
The thicker the layer of insulation, the warmer the coat. It is necessary that its bottom does not sag, and the floors and sleeves are the same length.
You should also pay attention to the hem. The bottom edge should be folded no less than 3 cm, and the sleeves should be at least 2 cm.
If the pockets are made correctly, then they are quite deep, they can hold the whole hand.
Model on the figure
When choosing a coat, the following factors matter:
– Is there any stiffness when moving
– when putting your hands in front of you, the fabric on the back should not be under tension
– if folds are formed in the armpits, then a smaller size is needed
– optimal sleeve length – to the middle of the palm
– measure better on a sweater or jumper
