Neo, from The Matrix, Inspector Gadget, and Sherlock Holmes.
What do they all have in common?
Well, besides being mental and physical super humans, they all rock some sort of overcoat in their personal image.
Why do you think that is?
Well aside from the extreme functionality that comes with hiding a plethora of weapons and gadgets, the top coat portrays an alpha look on a man. It has a sophisticated yet dominant appeal.
I have to admit something, I never used to own a topcoat.
In fact, I never wanted a coat that would go past my waist. I had a specific style that I was used to and I never wanted to experiment or try anything new.
Many stylists would argue that longer coats are only for the guy looking to take some risks with his style, due to the fact that it drapes down past the waist.
This was my original thought process as well. I would say ”This looks cool on him, but it doesn’t fit my style.”
However, after owning one and seeing the function and style that it provides, I now would say that this is a staple piece that belongs in every man’s closet.
Not convinced yet? Well let me make my point…
