Hey there guys, need some help deciding between two coats.

For those who need ref, here's a pic of Sho: http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20081227233329/twewy/images/5/5c/Minamimoto.jpg

Now I've got a gift card to Target (lol) that I need to use, and I'm debating between these two coats:

Coffee Shop Whatever Coat (http://www.target.com/Coffee-Belted-Double-Breasted-Trench/dp/B0031SOMVG/ref=br_1_4?ie=UTF8&frombrowse=1&qid=1279145078&searchView=grid5&sr=1-4&node=16431551&searchRank=pmrank&searchPage=1&rh=&searchSize=30&id=Coffee%20Belted%20Double%20Breasted%20Trench&searchBinNameList=target_com_size-bin%2Ctarget_com_primary_color-bin%2Cprice%2Ctarget_com_brand-bin)

Merona Short Trench Coat (http://www.target.com/Merona-Short-Trench-Coat-Ebony/dp/B002M3FSUK/ref=sc_pd_gwvub_3_qi)

They're very similar, I know. I'm preferring the first one over the second one, but I wanted to get some opinions. :3 Thanks!

Both coats actually seem too short for Sho ^^;; You can see that his goes below his crotch, while those 2 are at about waist level. They're also folding the opposite way. (His jacket has the left side on top. Those have the right side on top.) You might want to look into men's coats because they tend to fold the other way.

Argh, I totally forgot about that. Loser is me... x_x

I'm not that worried with the direction of the fold, though, since the game only uses sprites showing one side, so when they show him from the other side the fold is facing the other direction. xD So either way, I guess it could be an argument over 'authenticity'.

There's also this coat (http://www.target.com/Coffee-Shop-Belted-Twill-Trench/dp/B0031QN3AO/ref=br_1_18?ie=UTF8&frombrowse=1&qid=1279146757&searchView=grid5&sr=1-18&node=16431551&searchRank=pmrank&searchPage=1&rh=&searchSize=30&id=Coffee%20Shop%20Belted%20Twill%20Trench&searchBinNameList=target_com_size-bin%2Ctarget_com_primary_color-bin%2Cprice%2Ctarget_com_brand-bin) that I'm sure I'd have to hem up a bit since I'm short, but I'd also have to go in store and see how that top folds down. Looks like just a longer version of that Coffee Shop one I posted earlier. o__o

I think this one might be a better choice if ordering from Target:

The neckline matches up better :3 It does have too few buttons, but you could add extra fake ones.

Oh awesome, that looks a lot better than the other ones! :D Just need a super large buckle and some sewing and it'd probably be perfect. xD Adding buttons should be super easy, I'd have to switch them out anyways so it won't be a problem.

Thanks for the help! :D I'm going to check out the Target near me on the off-chance they have it in stock, but if they don't I'll just go ahead and order it and keep my fingers crossed. x3
