    Wouldn't nätti be better to describe a jacket??

    Nope, kaunis works well. Nätti has a diminutive and "cutesy" tone to it, which may or may not be applicable to the coat in question.

    Why is se required here, or is it another DL thing?

    Se refers to takki, just as it refers to coat. So not "another DL thing".
