As long as you decide you like purple before anyone says anything about the color, you are good. Then they are the ones being picky. :^)
Personally, I like purple stuff. This jacket is a dusky purple and that isn't bad. I have lady's shell gloves because the fit was good and the price was, too.
Now, if you really just don't like purple... That is another story. When do you plan on wearing the jacket? The simplest thing might be to just wear a shell over the jacket. If you are taking a rain shell, that might serve the purpose will enough..?
