Overcoats are an essential piece of outerwear, especially for men who frequently wear suits or blazers. Overcoats for men are designed to have room for blazers and sportcoats to fit underneath without wrinkling. Style-wise, overcoats project an air of professionalism. And in terms of warmth, a wool men’s overcoat offers excellent body heat retention and wind resistance.
Types of Overcoats for Men
While pea coats, trench coats, and duffel coats are all classic examples of types of overcoats, The Suit Depot specializes in full length overcoats and ¾ length overcoats, also known as car coats. Our full length overcoats for men and our ¾ length overcoats for men are made from a high quality, super soft wool cashmere blend. The types of overcoats that we specialize in are single breasted and have three functional pockets. They’re fully lined, and retain their shape year after year.
What to Look For When You’re Buying a Men’s Overcoat
Not all men’s single breasted overcoats are created equally. The following are marks of quality to look out for when you are buying a full length overcoat or a car coat: Look for a coat that is made out of a quality wool or wool blend. Wool cashmere blends like the one we carry are exceptionally soft and warm. Look for a full lining and a single rear vent. Also, look for a coat that comes exactly in your size. Our single breasted three button men’s overcoats come in sizes from 34 Short to 72 Long. We have men’s overcoats for big and tall men, as well as short slim men.
Best Colors for Men’s Overcoats
What color overcoat should you buy? Any neutral color will look professional. A full length overcoat in black is the most formal option – you can wear it to work, but also to formal events over a tuxedo. Navy blue is perennially professional – a great color to wear to a job interview if you happen to have one in the winter. Don’t forget about earth tone overcoats – a men’s overcoat in brown is understated and matches everything, and a camel tan overcoat for men is upscale looking. Grey and charcoal gray men’s overcoats are a less formal but equally sharp alternative to black. And for the man who likes to look sharp and unique, a burgundy overcoat or a hunter green overcoat stay in neutral territory but demonstrate a distinctive style.
