Kuhl Flight Jacket. Love It. Hate It. Her vs Him.

I have a fuzzy brown fleece jacket by NorthFace that I adore. It makes me feel like a little snugly brown bear when I wear it. I've had it for a few years now, and it is certainly showing its signs of wear and tear. In trying to find a replacement to fill the spot of my fuzzy bear fleece, I found this Kuhl one, which I. Am. In. Love. With. I immediately was thinking I found my replacement....

Until I heard "That is uuggglllyyy" in response to my googly eyed "I must own this!" exclamation to the bf.

Ok ok, so is it more suited for my fantasy life in Sun Valley, Idaho?Probably. Is that faux, leather detailing a bit much? Maybe, but no.

It it my fuzzy dream come true!

But I am respectful of other opinions I am responsible and didn't feel like emptying my little nest egg on a coat I didn't need, so it has never come home with me.

Fast forward....

Last night we meet up with the bf's close friend for a concert and what is she wearing!??! THE FUZZY DREAM OF A COAT I WANT.

He claimed he gave her a bad time about it too...but clearly not enough a bad time, because there is was in all of its fuzzy glory.

Outcome of the story. I am breaking down. I may need it. If only it came with a one way plane ticket to Idaho in one pocket and a million dollars in the other.

What do you think? Is it as ugly as the bf says? Or am I in the right?

  1. Mountain Hardware has some similar ones, too, I think. To be completely honest, I think they are not the most aesthetically pleasing jackets. However, I love wearing my friends' and I love it when they wear theirs. It immediately makes me happy. At least they're cuter than uggs?
