Overcoats obviously originated as a coat, longer than knee length which was worn over other garments primarily for warmth.
Practical & Versatile Garments
Today the modern overcoat includes garments known as topcoats which would be above knee length. While the modern overcoat can in some perform the practical purpose of keeping warm, they are more likely to be a fashion item worn in spring, autumn or in enclosed areas of controlled climate such as the Tube.
Modern Designs & Fabrics
The traditional role of the overcoat may be consigned to fashion history, but the performance coat has been quick to replace it as what to wear in seriously cold situations. With modern efficient clothing made from state of the art synthetic fibres, light weight warm jackets & coats are now available to keep out the cold on all fronts. Add to that modern design features, hoods, layered down filled jackets, zip fly fronts & storm cuffs, there's no reason to be cold watching your favourite team again.
While the main selection of warm performance jackets will always be winter season, there will always be a selection available. For performance outer wear & overcoats it's Stone Island, Hugo Boss & C.P.Company, a great choice.
