All of this is just my own personal opinion - obviously there's nothing wrong with owning and wearing a car coat. But taking the car coat as outerwear that has: 1) a ghillie collar 2) single breasted, sometimes with a covered placket 3) slashed hip pockets (there's probably a better word for this I'm not forgetting but it's 4 am here) 4) thigh length 5) a slightly fuller cut, I dislike pretty much every detail. I have a completely irrational but passionate aversion to ghillie collars on outwear. I think it's particularly egregious for a car coat because, especially with a covered placket, there's just nothing going on with the rest of the jacket - just swaths of unadorned fabric. And car coats are generally made in kind of uninteresting fabric. Together with the fuller cut, it ends up just looking kind of like a poncho with arms to me most of the time. Also, I don't have a car since I live in the city, so the utilitarian aspects of the car coat do nothing for me.

What's the style of the overcoat worn by Antonio Liverano? I think he is wearing one that is similar to the green Casentino (also by Liverano). Any idea what the back looks like?

From Sherlock, the coat looks great on the show. I think its Belstaff

There is a Crombie version at Barney's that seems to have the same design details — except it has a much higher button stance, slanted pockets and a more streamlined fit.

I wore a gray herringbone shetland tweed light topcoat from the Invertere museum today. Single breasted, fly front with a ghillie collar.

I was contemplating this coat for awhile. Ghillie collar was ultimately a deal breaker

I only like them on raincoats. Flipping the collar does have utility.
