One wonders why the phrase “cold shoulder” means standoffish. Her shoulders are undoubtedly colder without the coat, but she looks less standoffish that way.
Actually the I think that cold shoulder was what either carolers and or beggars got in M’O’ England, when the Lord of the manor did not want to give a few minutes by the fire, and/or take the few minutes to carve of a better piece! (I could be wrong)
As to your point about the coat~ yes that is the reason that I posted both coat and coatless versions~ with the coat, she doesn’t look nice enough to be a new hire, and coatless she doesn’t look business enough.
