Before I get flamed, I really did do a search, and it's a topic that comes up so often, I got nowhere. Wanted to hear from the ladies in particular on this one, but anyone's opinion is welcome. I like the cotton coats with french buttons, but are they too hot? I'm going to have them dry-cleaned so I don't care that they need to be ironed, I'm just wondering about the weight. How does it do with stains? I detest polyester, but are there advantages... And how about style? I know the belted back looks better on women, but should I go loose belt or sewn? Do you order a size larger to go over clothes, or should I order my normal dress size? My program asked if we'd like a specific type of coat, so I want to order a good one. Thanks!
