My beard's a bit shorter.

Trust me, when you finish school and enter the workforce, you'll realize I'm right. The first day you show up to the office in your down jacket and International Clothiers suit to the pointing fingers and ridicule of your coworkers, you'll think back to this thread and say 'Flashy, you mad genius, I should've listened to you!'

I'd rather be the odd man out to be honest rather than everyone wearing the same thing!

With wool jackets you will look more polished and professional, with down u look more casual

It's like wearing an ugg with a suit !

I have both a down and wool jacket. A wool jacket doesn't keep someone warm in the winter. There is no contest. I don't know why so many ppl keep wearing wool coats in the wintet months. Perhaps because they can't afford a down jacket so they cheap out on a cheap wool jacket?
You'll understand why when you start working in an office. Depending on wear you work... a down jacket isn't suitable. Wearing a down jacket to work with your suit etc is as bad as wearing a backpack to with your suit. It's just tacky and doesn't go together... it just looks unprofessional.

I don't think butthurt means what you think it means. Go back and read /b/ some more before attempting to butcher an established term.

Down jackets aren't meant for a professional environment. They are more casual and sporty. You will look like an idiot wearing a suit underneath a downcoat. Imagine going to a meeting with clients in an oversized CG parka? When you work in a business environment, you'll understand.

Wool coats, usually overcoats, are meant to wear over suits. They don't make you look bulky like a downjacket would over a suit.

While I can certainly afford a premium down jacket, it's just not my cup of tea since I have to wear professional attire, and a sporty down coat just won't do.

Clean, classic and plain black/beige/grey woolcoats make you look more mature. They also don't always have to go with suits. You can even wear a V-neck sweater with it or other layers, such as a cardigan.

I don't know why I have to explain this but in the winter you just don't go around wearing a winter coat. Looking over the posts here I get the idea that some expect to go naked under a downcoat? Uh, no. You can layer if needed.

its because people wanna show how warm their down coat is by wearing only a tshirt.
