It all depends on the person and the proportions. I suggest you either post pics of yourself in such a jacket, or buy a short version of the coat in question. You could also buy regular size and have it tailored. Do you really not know this? Ok, sorry, not aware...
I posted this about a week or so ago and for some reason, the post got deleted.? Anyhow, do "dusters" - those long western style raincoats look awful on those of us shorter guys (5'7") or can we get away with it? Here's one from Filson for illustration purposes. http://www.filson.com/products/shelt...r-header-10014 BOB
I mentioned this sizing issue in the Wolverine 1000 mile boot thread and thought I'd mention it here too. Rememeber, these are work boots and as such are not padded and cushy on the bottom as some other style boots can be. They do tend to be a tad on the large/wide side, but before you start sending boots back or placing and order, wear/try them with a thicker sock. I'm not saying a super heavy wool hunting sock, but a moderately thick wool/wool-blend sock. You may not...

Wiping with a damp rag? I mean like,...

I find wearing most any coat, even a sport jacket, way too uncomfortable and restictive while driving and an overcoat would for me, be out of the question. Bob

The jeans I wear both have 6" leg openings and I'm wondering if they'll look clownish under them. Personally, I don't think those boots with skinny jeans works - I can see where it would look clownish. As an aside, these boot are work boots, retro stylish though they are. Skinny jeans are on the opposite side...
