thanks for the heads up! I have already have a thrifted navy brooks brothers top coat, but its certainly seen some years and it goes down to mid-calf, which i'm not necessarily a fan of. I'm in need for a new top coat and have been digging the tan/camel color, which would work pretty well with the rest of my suit wardrobe...now the question is to be correct, or to pick something that i'll enjoy more as i use it in a regular context...I agree on principle but ...
I seem to remember in ‘Sunset Boulevard’ - made at a time when formal wear was seen more often - William Holden is in white tie for New Year and wears the camel - or was it vicuña? - polo coat over his tails. So it’s not a fashion crime nor unprecedented if all you have is light coloured, just not necessarily the optimal choice if time and money are no object!
