Matthew: what are you doing?
Rhobie: an honest answer?
Rhobie: I am looking at winter coats
Matthew: you know, I was just having a conversation with someone here about that
Rhobie: about me looking at winter coats?
Matthew: well, not you specifically
Matthew: although that could be a separate topic of conversation
Matthew: but how coats are "necessary accessories" for you people
Matthew: and how you have like 12 of them
Matthew: where we have like 1
Matthew: and hate wearing them
Rhobie: I love them
Rhobie: around here it’s part of your everyday winter outfit
Rhobie: for like 6 months of the year
Rhobie: and it's what people see
Matthew: so they have to be cute
Rhobie: more so than the clothes underneath
Rhobie: and I personally want to have more than 1 because I get bored
Rhobie: wearing the same one every day
Matthew: I mean, we don't wear the same shirt everyday
Matthew: at least I don't
Rhobie: I know!
Rhobie: so why should we wear the same coat every day
Matthew: so, what coat are you "needing" these days?
Rhobie: well I need a new ski jacket and I would also like a new casual wool jacket
Rhobie: I mean
Rhobie: I always have a need for more coats
Matthew: this is good
Matthew: it could be an article for a magazine
Matthew: do you have a trench?
Rhobie: yes - 2
Rhobie: tan and navy
Matthew: no winter white?
Rhobie: no I have a winter white wool coat now though
Matthew: well that's a relief
Rhobie: when you say trench I assume you mean like a fall coat for wearing when it is not freezing and might be raining
Matthew: I don't mean like Sherlock Holmes
Matthew: I think I mean a modified trench, that's short and ties
Rhobie: but canvas material (or whatever that stuff is)
Rhobie: not wool
Matthew: well, no
Matthew: I think I mean wool
Matthew: because traditional trench coat material makes me sad
Rhobie: this is confusing
Rhobie: well I have 2 knee length wool coats
Matthew: of course
Rhobie: 1 black, 1 winter white, 1 red
Matthew: those all sound nice
Rhobie: and 2 trenches (not wool and better for fall) tan, navy
Matthew: anything else?
Rhobie: 2 spring jackets - khaki and other is grey
Matthew: spring jacket = does not compute
Rhobie: 1 wool "short" jacket for casual winter wear
Rhobie: (which is why I need another)
Rhobie: 1 Gortex rain coat
Matthew: that doesn't sound attractive at all
Matthew: but who's looking at you in the rain
Rhobie: then I have a Gortex ski jacket
Rhobie: needs to be replaced
Rhobie: it's old
Rhobie: and several fleeces that I wear underneath
Matthew: so you're really in the market for several coats/jackets
