I was told by some random passerby this evening that guys "look intimidating in coats like that". I didn't bother to reply or engage in convo to the lady that said that, but found the comment rather interesting.

Now, I never thought I would start a thread in this forum. I bought this Calvin Klein coat a year ago and this is the warmest coat I've ever had. It fits me like a glove and easily puts on over dress clothes. Plus the long length (it's a long coat) keeps my legs warm since they cover thin, wool trousers. It makes a big difference especially if its windy out.

^^ This is the one. I never thought the word "intimidating" at all. Comments??

She's nuts - ignore her. It's a very sharp looking coat. Very like the ones the "City" guys wear in London. Enjoy it and stay warm!

It looks professional, very expensive, and what I would expect a high-level executive to wear. I don't know what your career is, but this is definitely dressing for success. Ignore her comments.

The coat looks great. It's simple, but looks very professional. Love it.

Maybe she was completely gobsmacked that she saw someone well-dressed? Who knows, but the coat looks very sharp. Well done, but definitely not intimidating ~

That is an odd comment, and I don't understand what it means. Intimidating like you are a gangster, or like she is intimidated by well-dressed men?
I have a cashmere coat similar to that, but not as dressy. Scored it for $30 at a thrift store.

That coat looks very nice. Many men around here wear topcoats like that--it's cold! I just saw my next-door neighbor this morning in a coat like that.

That passerby was a nut.

Nice looking coat. Pair it with a professional hat and you will look quite dapper! Almost every man working on Wall Street & in Manhattan financial centers in the winter wears an overcoat similar to yours.
