Whether you want to upgrade your casual style or your more classy / business oriented style, a long coat or as some would call it an overcoat / top coat / pea coat is an amazing piece of men’s wear that can upgrade and elevate any outfit.
When looking to purchase a long coat there are a few things you should consider:
- The Color Of The Coat
- The Thickness
- The Material
- The Style
When it comes to the color of your long coat it’s best to stick with a neutral or pale color.
Blacks / Greys / Olive / Camel
Are the main colors you should gravitate towards.
The thickness of the coat depends on a few factors.
If you live in a colder climate and intend to use your coat as a winter coat, go with a thick warm long coat made from wool.
If you’re going for a more casual ‘just putting this coat on as a finisher‘ go with a thin and easily breathable material.
There are many styles of long coat, single breasted, double breasted, pea coats, shorter styles (above the knees), longer styles (below the knees).
Generally you want to go with a long coat that ends right slightly above the knee cap.
