Apparently 'it's an lady coat and doesn't suit you'
' I had to say something because it's not doing you any favours'

Why am I upset? It's just a coat, but I've taken it personally. I feel he's insulted me

Probably because I thought it looked nice on and I thought I lioked good in it and I've worn it a lot in recent weeks.
Now I find out it looks horrible on me and makes .me look old?

I'm prepared to be told I'm being ridiculous.

Show us the coat op.

YANBU to be a little upset, it's normal to feel a sting when someone comments on your appearance - especially when you were under the impression it looked good on you.

Really need to see the coat to see if he's right though grin

The very first night I met DH he told me he hated my coat.

You’ll get past it OP.

Well... we all make fashion mistakes, OP. What’s he normally like?

And can we see the coat? grin

It sounds like he could have worded it better. Sorry you're upset by it.
Any chance we can see the coat in question?

So he doesn,t like it. But more to the point do you?

What’s the coat like? That would sting but I’d rather be told. I’d prefer to have been told when I bought it though rather than weeks in.

Very harsh if you've been wearing it already for weeks!
Can we see the coat? We can put him right (hopefully)

Is he good with fashion? If not ignore him! Wear what you love. Life is too short not to. And honestly if you wear it with confidence you will look amazing!!

Is it one of those teddy coats? I don't think they're flattering on anyone and hope that trend dies soon as I'm finding it impossible to find a nice coat. If they're not teddy coats they're all oversized and boxy ughhh. I'm short and when I try them on I look like I'm a child in my grandad's overcoat - wondering if that what your husband's on about?

Everyone has different tastes. Your DH may hate it but others may love it.

Do you have a pic?

Natural to feel upset but it’s only a coat.

Can you not ask him to get you another one if he dislikes it so much?

It's a popular style this year.
Sort of a boucle wool coat
Not fitted. But tapers in a bit at the bottom.
It comes down to mid thigh.

Why should OP have to change her coat to appease her husband? Is this 1950? hmm

If you like the coat carry on wearing it, screw him.

If you had asked him his opinion and he said this, ask yourself if you would rather he lied.

DH always gives an honest opinion if I ask for it, even if it’s not what I want to hear. The flip side is that I know that positive comments are genuine.

If he’d volunteered the negative without me asking for an opinion, however... [gets claws out]...

likeamillpond Thu 03-Dec-20 17:46:38

It's not a teddy coat.

I bought a new coat one year in the January sales. And a hat to match..
Ds said I looked like a lovely sheep!!
Hat went in the charity bag!!
Yabu to give a fook what your dh thinks anyway op.
Enjoy your new coat!

PhlegmyHead Thu 03-Dec-20 17:47:34

Need a pic OP

josbd Thu 03-Dec-20 17:47:43

Perhaps he has no taste ??

billy1966 Thu 03-Dec-20 17:48:05

I love my husband but I certainly wouldn't treat his opinion as that of a fashion guru....I dress for myself primarily and a bonus if he admires something I'm wearing....
