Don't understand how...
Looks ridiculous next to the Harris Tweed Coaches Jacket..
the harris tweed coach would be an absolute cop if it didnt have a hood. but the pile lined is definitely going to be the best piece of the season as far as shirts go.
Why don't you like the hood? I think I'd prefer the Pile Lined Shirt without those pockets, so like you say, essentially a choaches jacket without a hood. I think it's going to be too thick for a shirt IMO.
