Belts or sleeves! (It's boot season where I live!)

sleeve length please. as an aside, what's up with 3/4 sleeve winter coats? I notice a lot of vintage coats had shorter or 3/4 sleeves. do we let the garment sleeves underneath show, or not?
Right now, it seems long sleeves are longer, even covering part of the hand. is this a trend, will it be replaced, is this just about comfort?? Thanks, sleeve guru! :-)

Jennifer, I have noticed the 3/4 length sleeves on coats too, even new coats in magazines and so-forth. I would definitely go out on a limb and call it short-lived.

How to wear them? The garment sleeves underneath show, at least in the winter. Probably you would want those extra-long sleeves with a coat like that. ;0

I think a more stylish (and classic) look with those 3/4 sleeve coats would be a 3/4 sleeve top and longer gloves!

Yes, please do sleeves.

Garment sleeves show, or you get to wear wonderful long gloves ...

I think those aren't the best coat options for the climate I live in!

Beth and Wendy, you are both right -- long gloves would be an excellent option.

Either way, a 3/4 sleeve coat would take too much work for me, although I'm sure there are both glamorous and trendsetting types who could do it very well.

In my mind, the advantage of 3/4 sleeves is not having to push your sleeves up to do the dishes. Who does the dishes in their coat? :D
