Having lived in southern california most of my life, I have never had to buy a coat. However, now that I am in Pennsylvania where it is snowing, I figured it would be a good investment. I am looking for something that is longer than a pea coat but does not go past my knees. Maybe something like this: http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/2988110/...bo=6004479&P=2 or: http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/2991384/...bo=6004479&P=3 Some questions: 1. Is there a specific name for this type of coat? 2. My understanding is that these coats are generally made to wear over a suit. However, I will probably just be wearing it more casually over a sweater + shirt. Do I need to get it altered or can I just wear it bit loosely over my sweater? 3. Do people get these coats tailored like they would with a suit jacket? 4. Can I wear these with jeans and loafers or are these usually worn with dress shirt + tie + dress pants thanks!!
