Surprisingly hard to find. I've tried Yoox a million times. Does anyone know of coats similar to this:

Those being hard to find isn't all that suprising at all, really. An overcoat with a lower button stance would let out a fair bit of heat that one with a higher stance wouldn't.

Why do you associate a low button stance with the 80s?

The low button stance was popular in the 80s and early 90s. I agree with cptjeff, a low button stance makes no sense on an overcoat. Overcoats that button up to the neck are most practical. When they don't button to the top, a scarf should be enough to plug the hole.
