    You want what used to be called a suburban or car coat. About 33-34"(3/4 length) for a normal height man. The weight would depend upon how cold it is where you live and what you wear underneath. A lot of coats arent that heavy because men usually wear them over suit jackets and that's one layer right there.
    A good weight for autumn/winter would be like a double faced duffel coat type or a tweed.

    The reason for wearing them is not to freeze your ass off before the car heater kicks in. On a cold winter morning it can take between 20 to 40 minutes to defrost the windows so that means idling when its iced over.

    So you sit in your car for 40 minutes? Keep it in the garage or send Jeeves out to start it.
