In the past few years I've just bought one expensive coat to see me through the season, however now i'm left wondering if would be better to buy ones that look nice, just less expensive or even vintage ones.

How many do you suggest is a good amount?

Also what is your favourite type of winter coat? [do you have pictures?]

All I have is a ski coat (which I only wear skiing and sledding), a blue and brown toggle coat with hood that I wear most winter days and this leopard brocade number. I would definitely like to have some more, like a ladylike three-quarter-length with cure details and a pea coat in a neutral shade for when my plaid coat would clash.

Definitely agree with the idea that one can never have enough jackets. New England is cold most of the year so they're essential

As for coats though I only really have one and then a cape that I got from my mother.

I have way too many coats but I love them because half the time when I'm going to classes, I'm in a coat so I feel it is an essential in the closet. I have two trench coats (navy, khaki), military jacket, leather, wool peacoat. I think I might invest in a new winter coat once my current one gets a bit ruddy, these things are made to last though, had mind for about 3 years now.

I especially like this one, but I don't have any money with which to buy it. :(

it depends on what the weather is like. it gets freezing here so I need at least one good warm one, which I haven't had in years.. been freezing instead.

if weather isn't much of an issue get a few cheaper ones, no specific number, just whatever you like.

I have quite a few jackets but most aren't warm enough for winter. 3 leather, 5ish peacoats, 1 militaryish, 7ish furs, 1 massive pufffy long parka thing (not all of these are technically mine but they live in my house and I can wear them whenever I want, I love having a mom with good style). most of them were pretty cheap and came from thrift stores otherwise I would never have that many, the last one I got was $17. I don't think I've paid over $40 for any of them except 2 of the leather jackets. even some of the furs were under that much but still in great condition

That's really nice! Do you think the sizing of it runs big? [I was thinking of getting an oversized coat for really cold days]

Ahh I love duffle coats!

I got a red and white one from Topshop last year, but I bought it late and hardly wore it :\, so hopefully somewhere will get some nice coloured ones in soon!

It's the same where I live, everyone seems to be fine in hoodies and the like, but i'm constantly cold in the winter.
I think that's my excuse for buying them anyway..

You need a camel coat a la Chloe, a shearling jacket- sheepskin lined aviator style, a nuetral cape to par with everything, a trench; as always, and a utility jacket paired with a leather belt at the waist...
Thats a total of 5!

I have three winter coats, and it's enough to survive the cold winter here in northern Norway. But still, I'd like to have a couple more. I have a short wool coat, a long wool coat for finer use, and a thick parka.

I'd say about five coats would be a nice number? A couple for everyday use, one for shopping and some for parties and other stuff.

I have a 3/4 length Jack and Jones black wool coat. 3/4 runs just under the butt. I like it, but it took me forever a coat with sleeves long enough to cover my arms. Most of the coats I tried were too short on the arms :( I wanted to get a double-breasted one (military style) but I didn't find one that fits me. But I'm happy with the one I have, I love the shape of it, it's slim and really really nice.
