6 Best Camel Overcoats: Why Every Guy Should Own One
Last updated: February 14, 2022
Not many pieces of menswear can scream both professional and luxury at the same time; enter the camel coat.
Whether you’re going for a business casual friendly vibe or something a little bit more minimal, the camel overcoat is something you can add to any closet and be better off for it.
It’s such a universally loved piece of clothing that you can see it on fashionable men of all ages, from streetwear aficionados to Wallstreet executives. Here is our guide on buying the best camel coats, and how to style them.
How Overcoats Should Fit
There are a few golden rules when determining the fit of an overcoat:
Opt for a slimmer fit
You don’t want a bulky, boxy overcoat. At that point, you might as well get a parka instead which would provide more warmth and function.
Overcoats should end just above the knee.
There is, of course, exceptions to this (depending on the style of overcoat). But as a general rule, overcoats should end just above the knee.
Sleeves should end at the wrist
Having the sleeves of the overcoat too long will give a juvenile look.
Not too tight around the arms
A little bit of snugness when crossing your arms while wearing the coat is fine, but if you’re struggling to move, especially around the bicep area – it’s too small.
When you’re looking to buy a brand new camel overcoat, you want to get it right the first time. Overcoats are an expensive item, and you don’t want to skimp on quality.
