I guess because it’s still in the 80s in the great state of Texas, I would say no. Besides, she looks like she has on a gray garbage bag. The coat just looks HOT!! I bet when Renee comes to Texas to visit the family, you won’t see her in it.

I adore patent leather but that just looks like a raincoat. I also love grey but it’s too much. Overall, it’s drab and cheap-looking.

I’m oddly drawn to that coat…I’m debating what other color it would be fabulous in.

Heck no, I wouldnt! Did the fashion designers run out of ideas? They need to work harder to convince anyone about this mess. Wear patent clothing? Looks like PVC to me and I would not be caught dead in anything like that. I like patent shoes and bags. Now clothing, that is another story.

I happen to like it, I stopped wearing leather a little over a year ago so this coat would be a perfect alternative!!

I like the coat. But why does she always look like she’s either drunk or hung over? She looks terrible. Carolina Herrerra or not.

I’m on the fence with this jacket. On one hand this jacket looks like a raincoat, but I’m oddly attracted to this jacket. I guess for me to ever purchase a patent trench coat, I’d have to be on site at the store to try it on and get the feel of the jacket, this jacket wouldn’t be something I’d buy online.

A cute look but a bad idea if this is PVC. PVC doesn’t breathe. It’s like being trapped in a sauna. Not a pleasant experience.

If it’s high gloss leather, then why not?

Does anyone know of any sites that sell genuine patent leather coats or jackets. I found two at nordstroms but they are no longer available. I would greatly appreciate your assistance on this one.
