Fueled by seeing the jackets in Alfie and Oceans, I recently bought the sweetest vintage trench coat. Superbly slim fitting, double breasted, epaulets, caped back yoke, full skirt, and belted waist. I'm in love with it. Unfortunately, I'm not entirely sure how to wear it. Come to think of it, I'm not sure I've ever seen anyone wear one in Los Angeles in all of my 26 years. Anyway, my questions are two fold: 1) What am I supposed to do with the belt? Would it be most stylish to tie it up in the back (and in what manner?), or fasten it around my waist? 2) I'm assuming these were originally worn over suits...would it look out of place over jeans and a T-shirt? Or should I stick with slacks and a button-down? Like I [embarassingly] mentioned above, I'm going for the Jude Law or Brad Pitt look. Any comments appreciated.
