Gender Neutral offspring require a non-girly, long black coat (possibly military) to wear with chunky boots, preppy shirt and bow tie. Petite (5' 0", size 12 in a jumper) so does need to be a women's coat to fit boobs in). I'm finding nothing. Can anyone advise/help please?
something like the military one in back would be great. The coats are mostly a shorter length and DC definitely wants something long...but as they aren't long themselves it's very difficult. Also, I suspect , the wrong time of year. Thanks for looking
Thank you all so much for your help! I didn't risk buying anything without teen's approval but miraculously there were 2 that they didn't hate yay! (one second hand one new) Both should arrive this week so they are sorted coat wise for this winter and next. Thanks again
...nothing is simple. The two chosen are 'alright' but not what they would have picked as ideal as neither are quite cool enough. Apparently military is cool so I have purchased metal buttons on ebay and will be replacing them. Still, 2 coats vs no coat (as would rather go without coat than wear anything that looks to girl or too old fashioned or practical!) is a huge step forward!
