If the coming fall months are making you feel like you’re critically short on outerwear then we’ve got a particularly chic solution to your problems. Historically worn as a symbol of social status or prestige, the overcoat has been co-opted by much of the streetwear world in recent seasons, often paired with hoodies and sneakers for a particularly striking high/low combination. Sometimes referred to as a topcoat or Chesterfield, the overcoat is characterized by a long cut, buttoned closure and notched lapels (that’s the collar for those unfamiliar with tailoring terms) and is particularly flattering on taller and slimmer dressers thanks to its elongated silhouette.
