Been addicted to Queen of Tears (Korean drama) lately and I'd say they have such amazing tailoring, both men and women. One particular type of outfit that strikes me is the suit but with a long coat done in the same fabric as the pants instead of a regular jacket. I wonder if it's commonly done as I've not seen it anywhere? If so, is there a particular name for this? I thought it's super cool and now I want to wear one as well but I don't know what people around me will think haha.

Had one client who ordered 4 piece suits which is jacket, vest, trouser and topcoat or sometimes a cape, all from the same cloth.

Takes big balls to actually wear a cape.
Concur!

I served in the US Army and there was a formal cape authorized to be worn with dress blues. It was dark blue exterior with regimental color lining, I always wanted one, but went to maybe one formal event a year…. Never could justify it.

Similarly, was at a wedding last winter and dress code was “creative black tie.” I was scouring eBay for an opera cape to wear, but couldn’t find one in decent condition at a decent price.

All this is to say you’re right, so far my balls are not big enough……

Opera cape is what we made. These were full length capes, same length as the topcoat. This was during my apprenticeship in Dallas in the ‘80’s.
Client was from Big Spring Texas. Every summer for the 3 years i was there he ordered 4 three piece suits and a cape from the same cloth. One for each opening night of the Opera Season.
When he ordered suits for business, we made a matching topcoat for each suit.
it’s a funny thing I can‘t explain. Had a shop in Chicago, but consistently sold more outerwear, topcoats and overcoats, in Dallas than Chicago.
They were a hard sell in Chicago.
Made tails for a young guy in Chicago that he wore for the opera and symphony. Told me he just didn’t care if no one else did, it’s how he liked to dress.
Two stories are enough, will spare you from the details about the client ordering for high Season in Viena.
Tailoring is interesting; men dressing as an expression of their lifestyle.

Big Spring is literally out in the middle of nowhere. I'm guessing that client was some rich oil guy.
