Your calves get cold, huh?

Come to NYC when it is windy, so cold you can't think and walk a half a mile then come back here.

Unless the city is significantly colder than central NJ, which it isn't, I don't think the difference between mid-calf and knee length is that much. I'd be willing to have cold calves to not look like an old dude... No offense to any old dudes.

You would be surprised the difference in wind whipping around the block and being sustained in cold weather for a long while. Walking to your car isn't the same. Plus short coats just don't look good. They look like immature.

I'm with patrickBOOTH on this one... plus the longer coat looks more elegant and concurrent with Crusty's style, IMO.

What I really hate is raincoats that don't go past the knee. Obviously, not actually meant to be worn in the rain. Very conducive to wet legs (especially on a bicycle) and water running down into your rain boots. Ask me how I know.

If you're referring to the bumpiness of the fabric, where it looks like it's pulling...yes. It is a raw silk tie.

I think they look good on Crusty but for someone that is shorter and younger it would look like they were wearing their father's coat.

For the record, I'm not that tall (5' 10"), but I do believe that I qualify as an old dude (I turn 57 later this year), and thus believe myself exempt from needing my coats to be shorter, and I like my overcoats to cover my knees when standing (where along the mid-calf the hem hits can vary by maker, but not too close to my ankles).

Glad that the look works for me, in most of your collective estimations smile.gif.

Breast pockets and watches on one's right side are s00pid.

Mine is about mid-calf, maybe a touch shorter. I'm 26 and 6' 2" smile.gif
