Is jacket not a proper substitution for coat?

No it isn't: a jacket is short and a coat is long.

I'd say they're interchangeable words in English but not French

How would you say "He carries a blue coat"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sitesurf

Same thing, as long as we don't have any context.
