1:14 you made the first mistake of wearing a belt when you are wearing a vest, wear suspenders instead of a belt, also overcoats are NYC style because of the weather.
Gent's Lounge (5 days ago)
No suspender buttons on these pants...

It’s nice to see Men talking about cool stuff and styles.

Rant: I find something very psychologically/sociologically interesting with overcoats and pea coats, and mainly the current modern day designers producing them. Most of you will say this is subjective but I believe otherwise. What is the baseline style of this article of clothing? What is the most basic, basic, basic foundation for this look? And also what do WE ALL DEEP DOWN KNOW IS THE BEST LOOKING VERSION OF THIS COAT? I'll tell you what it is. Call me crazy but I know its buried in the back of all of your minds. It is a thick, wool, BLACK, DOUBLE BREASTED, KNEE LENGTH, Pea coat style coat... with 3 BUTTONS (not a million) with large lapels.... In other words a LONG BLACK PEACOAT. Now WHY is that exact description the rarest article of clothing to find on the planet. You can find it, but it ALMOST literally doesn't exist. I recently spent almost 1000 dollars buying an old navy blue airforce overcoat, dying it black and getting a million alterations made to it to have it tailored, and it is currently.. objectively.. the best looking overcoat on the planet. Why in gods name is this coat not seen in every mens clothing store. Baffling.

+Gent's Lounge Yes, and I find that baffling. I truly believe that these other modern takes are fast fashion offshoots of the original long black peacoat/overcoat described above, that is just timeless and you just can't beat it... And that ""subconsciously"" buyers actually truly want that exact look, they just don't fully realize it... and that if stores were to sell that exact look described above, it would sell better than all these other modernized versions of that look, but yet you NEVER see that specific look ever. For years. Ever since mens more vintage style classic fashion started becoming popularized again (brown leather ankle boots, peacoats, 50's haircuts etc) around 2010ish you have NEVER been able to find that coat, and yet I find it to be the unbeatable aesthetic foundation for all these other versions.

Black is out these days... not for everyone but for the majority.

Wearing a double breasted overcoat unbuttoned like that makes it look kind of sloppy... Way too much fabric flopping around.
J R Crawford (3 months ago)
I disagree with one of your final points. Longer overcoats are timeless, shorter ones are what is currently in fashion. It's up to you what you go for

I got an overcoat from H&M and it keeps me warm, feels sturdy, color didn’t fade or anything and after 5 years, I’m still rocking it. Cost me 100$. Doesn’t have to be an expensive overcoat to be good (especially when on a budget).

What were the names of the economical overcoats?

For those coats which come with a belt one easy thing I’ve found most Japanese guys do to make it fit to their waist without tailoring it is to tie that belt on the back just enough to make the waist smaller.

I have a black long coat with battered fedora and if I wear both of this with a sunglasses..I look like an anime villain
Diana Uhlman (4 months ago)
I own about four overcoats of different colors, and I love them. One piece advice, get a full length coat, for rainy days. Ruin a good pair of trousers that way. Awesome video!

Thanks guys I found the video very helpful. I have a black one but I would really like to buy a maroon or crimson one soon!

I like you guys. You look nice with your style and fashion sense. But I would like to see them worn or presented on the screen more than the presenters themselves framed on the camera while they talk. Maybe less verbose could also help us understand more. Cheers guys. More power.
Chroma6969 (5 months ago)
I’m 16 years old, am I too young to wear a overcoat? Honestly I think it looks nice

If it works with your style go for it. Wear it with confidence and you're good to go. -G

Hi this is an older video but I have question on buttoning inside the coat; is it proper to button your jacket under your coat? I would assume so but was just wondering what the proper rules is. Thanks guys!

Does a trench-coat qualify as an overcoat? Because i just got a trench-coat and i want to use it, but i need to know what clothing fits for a trench-coat.

3:05 wrong weather
Adriel Rowley (1 year ago)
I bought a made in USA of Italian 100 percent wool overcoat that weighs at least a pound despite being a size 40. How much did it cost? $15. The fabric is so soft and warm, now will be my go to while this cold weather is here. Point is, if patient, you don't have to spend $500 for an overcoat. Hope this helps and great ideas.

great video guys. that camel coat is legit
Kyaw Myo Km (1 year ago)
Should i go with darker camel or lighter camel, the one in this video? Thanks a lot.
Gent's Lounge (1 year ago)
Depends. I'd go darker if you live in a place that actually has weather. It will hide the dirt and wetness a lot better. -G

Not to be a troll but why is the small skinny guy wearing HUGE lapels. It doesn't fit your body type. The general accepted rule is thin guys need skinny to medium lapel and bigger guys need medium to large lapels. It looks silly otherwise 🤷🏻‍♂️
Caeden Goering (2 months ago)
Yeah, I agree. Those are ridiculous
Andrew Bogani (1 year ago)
In the video you mentioned that George's Blue Overcoat looked "like a peacoat." What is the difference between a peacoat and overcoat? How can I tell the difference when shopping?

Blake's double breasted suit, who makes it?
kevboutin (1 year ago)
Don't wear a belt with a 3-piece suit! Go for side adjusters or braces.
David M. Spence (1 year ago)
George - do you still have that Topman camel coat you were rocking last season? I bought the same one in Small but outgrew it! Willing to buy yours from you if you're moving on from it!

Mine may be too big. I think it's a large. -G
Dhiraj Darlami (1 year ago)

MrJeronimo94 (1 year ago)
If you get a really high quality one, you'll be looking around 1500-2500$, but if you get one that fits well it will last you a lifetime if you take a bit of care!
kendallarroz (1 year ago)
Your right. I got my Greatcoat got about $1500 a few years ago. Never needed a tailor and is built well.
Gent's Lounge (1 year ago)
True! -G

Another great video. Thanks for the tips. Keep it up. I agree, camel is the best first choice because it's so versatile and goes really well with everything. I wish I had known the size down rule but now I know when I eventually look for a plaid overcoat.
Gent's Lounge (1 year ago)
Thanks Jamal! -G

John Riley (1 year ago)
My grandpa had a beautiful textured grey overcoat that he handed down to me. the inner lining was falling apart but once I repaired that it became my go-to all winter. It hangs a little below the knee, where I prefer for utility purposes (living in the ne in winter) and pairs with any formal level. this overcoat is favorite coat and accessory I own, hands down.
Gent's Lounge (1 year ago)
That's awesome! -G

Gent's Lounge (1 year ago)
Yes sir! -G
jjnewbold (1 year ago)
There are great deals to be had if you buy this stuff in the spring/summer. My J Crew Ludlow top coat was 450 originally, I picked it up for 130 in April I think.
Gent's Lounge (1 year ago)
Yes sir! And they never go out of style. -G
Edo (1 year ago)
George, you dress so well, why do you still wear that belt? It ruins your entire outfits, especially with that beautiful waistcoat.
Edo (1 year ago)
Gent's Lounge Yeah but I mean. A man of style like you shouldn't wear anymore big, bold flashy high brand logo (especially with a waistcoat, because the waistcoat should follow the lines of your body without being interrupted). Btw a I really like the style of both of you ;)
Gent's Lounge (1 year ago)
I like the belt. I own 3 in different colors. -G

GL; guys! Did you really just mention combat gent? They do not have anything in stock and was going down hill late 2016. I think now the company is empty and bone dry. Perhaps they are working on creating the truth and trust again with consumers. What you think? People piss to who know what's been going on with combat gent.
Soon E (1 year ago)
Let's hope so. Still have credit to use on their website and nothing in stock. On the side note; Vishaal the CEO is a big guy; how he has not accommodated clothing for bigger belly dudes like myself. GL, keep on trucking with your videos.
Gent's Lounge (1 year ago)
We are trying to figure that out as well! We heard about the issues after filming the video. We have never had anything but a good working relationship with them and had some future collaborations in the works. Will let you know what we can find out. -G
Gopi Bachatero (1 year ago)
I agree. I think you should do a stylebook video on camel coloured coats
Gopi Bachatero Man that’s a great idea!
Last Earthbender (1 year ago)
The navy overcoat with the suit looks awesome! And Blake's camo coat is really cool too.
Last Earthbender (1 year ago)
Oh shit, sorry about that. Where I come from, the weather doesn't really permit us to wear any type of coat unfortunately. So I'm not familiar with the names lol
coolerfiend (1 year ago)
Camel coat, not camo coat LOL XD made me double take

I find most overcoats are cut to be worn with a blazer underneath and that you can just buy your normal jacket size. When shopping for one it's a good idea to bring a blazer/suit jacket with you to try on with the overcoat.
Gent's Lounge (1 year ago)
You're right. Sometimes they leave a little too much room though. -G
Carlos Bornes (1 year ago)
What a great video, I bought my overcoat in my freshman year in college (5 years ago) it fits really nice and it is really good quality but I never know how to dress them. Next week I will dress it for the first time Thanks guys, I send you a picture

We would love to see it! -G

The blue overcoat is my favourite the wide lapel makes it very stylish and expensive look.

You don't need an overcoat living in LA This style seems more suitable for NYC

LA is too hot for overcoats.

Very good video on overcoats, but you can not take your eyes off the Italian style wide peak lapels of that beautiful jacket. Always stylishly one step ahead guys. Thanks!

Blake, I saw that grey plaid coat in a video last year and loved it. Couldn't find it online tho :( Still love it!
Ryan Mendoza (1 year ago)
correction in the summary: blake mentioned size down instead of size up.. 👌
Nico Herrera (10 months ago)
Sizing up? Nope, size down in regular bases if you’re a slim guy
KevinMphotography (1 year ago)
yea, i'd recommend having someone watch the video before posting world-wide so those errors aren't in there.
kipisgeenmus (1 year ago)
Awesome camel overcoat indeed. Think I'll be buying one next year, perhaps after the season to get an awesome deal, currently don't really need one. Great vid as always gents!

TheBestUsername (4 months ago)
Are you... just an exceptionally dedicated troll, or are you actually completely insane? Also, as a white person, I don't give a shit how much melanin other people have, or where they come from. No one is inferior or superior to anyone else because of their physical appearance, who their parents are, or where they are born.
Kory Drexler (1 year ago)
I'm white but I'm not a racist narcissist with a fantastically low respect for people who were born with a different skin color to my own. You are a piece of utter trash and I sincerely wish nothing good for you. Just because someone was born with a different skin color, in another country, or in another religion, doesn't mean that their place in society is not valuable, all lives matter, not just your own; especially not your own, you racist trash. I shouldn't even waste my time on someone as idiotic as yourself.
Ivan Sirko (1 year ago)
Raudel Garcia 'true values of conservatism?' Can you name one thing conservatism has succesfully conserved? 'Garbage person?' Perhaps you should click on the other guys channel. Listen, bro. I don't hate you. I'm just trying to advocate for the collective interests of my people. Clearly the jews in power don't have anyone's interests in mind but their own. Peace
Raudel Garcia (1 year ago)
Daniel Sturridge Anyone reading this, just stop replying to this thread. He does not represent anything about conservatism. Vast majority of white people don’t think like this. This is a garbage person. And nothing of what he says holds any value, and should be ignored like you would with the mumbles of a mentally ill homeless tweaker.
Ivan Sirko (1 year ago)
Gille87 SURPRISE! Unfortunately for you; you're not white. Kill yourself. Nothing of value will be lost.
