On our boat we use floatcoats or kayaking vests exclusively - well, except for the full backup set of regular type II's accessible from the deck.
In my experience, when it gets chilly enough to want a jacket, you should be wearing flotation anyway, and nobody seems to object to the bomber-jacket style float coats.
In really warm weather a kayaking vest stays out of the way while it's on.
The problem is kids - our 1-year-old screams bloody murder when we put the PFD on him, and I haven't seen a comfortable alternative.
