Scrolling down, I saw ArtofTime's garage and literally said "this motherfucker... "
Excellent. Too many good ones to choose from in this round. Well done, guys.

Bleachboy's outerwear is the only double breasted style I like. I am a sucker for houndstooth, and appropriately only NYR could pull it off without apologies. Nice stuff, overall really, learning a lot from you guys.

CP, awesome ice shot...I miss it so much!

Spoozy, Spoo, and BB win the pimp award! AoT, if the Mr Sam adoption falls through, I could be made available. I used to wash/wax cars for extra $$ in HS too, so i got that going for me!

Looks good fellas! Having a hard time voting for one (my principle, i only give my vote once, I'm no vote whore!)

It's mid-calf, which is not unusual for a double-breasted very thick overcoat like that, esp. given the military detailing of epaulets, belted back, and so on, which echo those of military greatcoats which usually fell to below knee and up to about mid-calf (and occasionally even longer, depending on nation). Plus the massive lapels and DB fastening needs some extra length for balance too, esp. when in motion. The long, slightly flaring skirt positively swirls about when walking, which is lots of fun, and I think a nice contrast to the fairly heavy waist suppression. Mind you, that is a somewhat controversial view to take. There's a similar argument in Manton's recent thread on his bespoke DB, though his overcoat is much more formal than mine. I also seem to recall that when I first bought this overcoat, I started a thread on what length it should be. I was fairly agnostic at that point, though leaning to keeping it full-length, and a whole range of - very strong! - opinions on both sides of the debate emerged. In the end, I decided to keep it as is. Personally, I'm very glad I did, not only for the aesthetic reasons I mentioned above, but also because it makes the coat MUCH more practical/warmer in cold weather conditions I tend to reach for it.

Spoo, for the big baller award.
UC, for total retro coolness.
TTO and Alan C for awesome DB action.

I found it completely impossible to choose between my serious (aeglus) and non-serious (UrbanComposition) choices. So, a vote for both!

I can see that being practical for warmth, but as a person of average height (5'10''), I'd go for one slightly above the knee. Something above the knee might look odd on a person of Manton's height, so he's better off aesthetically with a longer one.
