Which jacket Bentex wears....YOU DECIDE!

Nobody likes 2! Why?


I short listed it from 50 jackets. It's cheap too!

My current winter = 200
Smart rain coat = 100
Over suit jacket coat 200
Black fleece = 49*
Grey fleece = 39
Rain jacket (casual) * 25 ( was 50 but they messed me around and had credit note)
Greenish fleece 16


* too big since weight loss.

I need an everyday jacket. I'm using a grey fleece for that at the moment. But I want something more dashing.


I'm open to suggestions 250 is my limit.

Hmm depends on how fashionable you are. As someone who doesn't really care too much about that, I'll go for 3 over 1.

Yeah, #2 sucks.

If nobody was going to help I would be #2. Well, it's only 30 quid all in. I normally pay 200 quid at least!

I have a similar jacket but in back (hold on I make a kp!

This is what I have that's like #2 but different colour (all black). I love this jacket and don't want to wear it everyday (just going to shops, dentist etc)

For some reason I didn't list it below with my other jackets

That'll be this! Can't wear this to Burger king! only wear it to funerals and random special events.



and this is the jacket I got tailored with it.



Casual rain coat 35 quid (was 59 RRP).
But it's way too big now!!




Then 3 fleece coats (Grey, Black and Greenish)








I want something I can wear everyday...not posh...not trendy and not a bin bag either

Things I keep in mind.

- Fleeces are not good when wet (otherwise they match everyday use)
- Ward jacket is just too hot.
- I like the first jacket in this post but I only want to wear it when I'm going out for dinner or party etc.



I've been trying to solve this problem for over 10 years lol

Whatevah...got my camera out so I took a pic of the fleeces and rain jacket.


What do you call the colour of the middle fleece?



The grey is brand new! and a size smaller than my previous fleece (same make/design )



My next one will be 3xl and I can buy in regular stores again

Last but not least my smart rain coat





That's 8 coats I have and I'm not a lady or homosexual

Guy's please help out a brother!

I nearly completed my collection for forseeable future! I just need an everyday smart/casual coat that's not a fleece!


I found these in a local store. Please tell me which one you like and which one would suit Bentex.


Also it's a little fun and you could be saying "I picked that one for him"

If you didn't get the Harrington from the OP then you still need one.

I like the "Harry" one.

Told you, every day shit.

Walk in the park...going shopping...visiting a friend.

I have coats for every other occasion.

I know technically the fleece coats can be used everyday. But I want something else.

Unless Pista wants to buy me it for my birthday. That'll be very kind of him.
