    The cold weather lately has me thinking about classic men's coats. This thread is to serve as a dumping ground for inspirational photos and illustrations, as well as a place where we can discuss fabrics, silhouettes, RTW makers, as well as custom projects involving classic men's coats.

    Here are a few images to start us off.

    Great idea.

    I've been looking at polo coats.

    Great thread. Overcoats are awesome, and it is surprisingly hard to find the perfect one.

    I've got one almost exactly like this that I love. Vintage PRL, weighs a ton and is super warm.
