Totally agree, longer coats rock!
Joe Ventorini (2 months ago)
If you live in Chicago or the N. East ( Wash DC, NYC, Boston, etc) a longer coat will protect you more fully against the cold...

I am looking for a long overcoat that falls below the knees, I read that the Winchester single breasted suits best, the inspiration comes from Peaky blinders. For my three piece suits I have a size 36 vest/waistcoat. does that mean I need the same size overcoat?

The saddest thing is that Antonio talks as if you'll buy one coat and that'll be all your needs sorted forever; it's a shame that retailers don't put this thought into their clothing - Everything these days is made cheap and made disposable. I always shop vintage.

Is it ok to wear a trench coat below the knees if you are short person.

I want the trench coat mafia style where can I find it?

How do we find coats that are below the knee in length? I have searched everywhere, including Burberry. No one seem to have them. Anyone got any shops?
Will Yuan (1 year ago)
Brooks Brothers, Macys, or go custom

+llIH i just brought one this month. Its literally called oversized over coat, it could have sold out though.

Not one of them are below knee

asos has oversized over coats

im about 5'10 5'11 so mid thigh or knee height is good for me

Knee height, try a 42" length

I just purchased what could of been a very expensive over coat at Goodwill for 8 bucks and it looks brand new. Khaki color overcoat very warm Eddie Bauer. It has a fur collar. Be sure to check out your local clothes you never know what you may fine. My jacket looks brand new
David 0221 (2 years ago)
well I have a coat with a sleeve that's a big bigger..it touches my palm...can this be reduced so it touches my wrist?
Hyan Lee (2 years ago)
I got an overcoat from Zara which goes right above my ankle and sleeve stops at my knuckles. Is that too long? Shoulder and waist fits very well.
Real Men Real Style (2 years ago)
+Hyan Lee The shorter length, the better. I would say 4 inches above the knee :)

Longer (over-, trench-, great-) coats all the way. I hate this shortening tendency and have troubles to find something that would meet my personal tastes. And my size. (((
CitronBleu (6 months ago)
Woman are offered adjusted, tailored clothes ; men are not (or no longer).
Cerberus Stewart (7 months ago)
Well there is a difference between Dusters and Trench coats while they are in the Longer category the biggest difference is Dusters has a long break in the back for riding horses
Angel OfTheRedSands (2 years ago)
True. To be honest women have much MUCH longer coats for sale at least in my country (Finland). You cant really find any cheap (under 300$) long coats. But women can get one for 40$ :(
Count Raven (2 years ago)
+jay77755 Thought so. Unfortunately in my city (or even country I guess) there is a big problem to find for people of my size. And many of those stores are removed and changed by so called fashionable boutiques which generally supply stuff that I'm not fond of. Guess I'll have to use ebay or another stuff like that.

I'm 5'8.5 and am about to buy a coat which is 49" long but am worried it might end up reaching too low and getting in the way. Would this be an issue for me?
Chris Maidens (3 years ago)
+Real Men Real Style The coat I'm looking to buy seems to be generally quite long (search for Captain Jack Harkness) and would appear to fall more than three inches below the knee
Real Men Real Style (3 years ago)
+Chris Maidens  3 inches below the knee for a classic overcoat works out. http://www.realmenrealstyle.com/how-buy-overcoat-guide-stylish-winter-clothing-men-video/

I am 5"9" and I have been told that my current overcoat makes me look smaller(bottom of my overcoat comes 1 inch below my index fingertip).I am going to buy a new one and how long should my overcoat be in order to make me look taller?And will a peacoat be better for me? Thanks in advance,

Where can you buy these coats that go below the knee, you know that reaches halfway to the shins. They're so hard to find, all I found were coats that are above the knee which I don't like that style.

URGENT QUESTION! Ive always been told for mens trench coats that the "storm flap" is supposed to be on the right side of the coat. I have seen several mens trench coats including this one that i can get a great deal on from Zara which has it on the left side, but its a mens trench coat. I keep hearing people say that it HAS to be on the right side. Any help?? I really want this coat im looking at its very nice and im getting a great deal on it too.
Real Men Real Style (3 years ago)
+xunit94 We see it on the right side for men and on the left side for women as the jacket buttons up in opposite ways for the different genders.   Read more here: http://www.artofmanliness.com/2010/10/20/man-guide-trench-coat/

Today, I saw an overcoat for $59.99 plus tax at jcpenney. The coat fit perfect but the sleeves were too long by about 1/2 an inch. Should I have passed the offer on a black wool overcoat for the price and waited to grow into it, or should I just wait u til I am older such as 15 or 16? (I'm 13)
Real Men Real Style (3 years ago)
+Preston Uber When you buy an overcoat, make sure to wear a shirt and a sportscoat or suit jacket because the coat has to fit on top of it. Some men like a looser fit while younger men often prefer a trimmer fit. However, if you see X-wrinkles when buttoning your overcoat, it is definitely too tight.

Tony, Hey it's Terry from 3/1.  I started watching your videos recently as I'm wearing a suit vice uniform.  Hope all is well. Just curious in this video your lapels look different.  I've not seen that before...is it common? Cheers!

If the overcoat has a breast pocket, how much does that affect what should be considered an acceptable length?
Bluesky (3 years ago)
Which overcoat can make you look taller long or short overcoat? What's the difference with a topcoat? I'm 5'8 medium built I'm trying to decide whether to cut my polish wool military coat shorter above the knee, is it 3 inches above?  Because it's a little heavy and hate it getting snag by the car door. Thank you.
Benjamin Magno (3 years ago)
Thanks for these. I used to have to wear a suit and tie to work - I lived in a rural area, and enjoyed the excuse to "look nice". I miss looking sharp, and love your tips on doing so in everyday life.

I have a nice wool + 10% cashmere Chesterfield for the winter, but type of overcoat is best for spring or fall when it's raining? Trench coat? Top coat? Thanks.

Antonio is a custom clothier so he has his own clothes made. He mentions his overcoat is a custom made one to fit his body. IN ADDITION :D he has another video where he talks about how to buy an overcoat and in that one we see his overcoat (well the top half).
Abraham Wu (5 years ago)
Cool! Just wondering, where and what kind of overcoat did the speaker get? I'm really curious. Because I have been searching for an overcoat for a long time. Thanks!

@cjs33139 Try getting the coat tapered to fit your body. I love my long coat - but it fits me like a glove in the torso and has a very masculine silloutte. Try it.
Real Men Real Style (6 years ago)
@IAhmed2010 Yes, but it is nice talk isn't it:)

@Speed00007 I agree - right now though I want to get out a base of videos to see what it is people really want to learn about - then we'll move to release better quality vids.

@DBrownofdc Thank you!
cjs33139 (7 years ago)
Antonio, I was hoping you'd address the height issue with regards to which coat length suits one better. As a man of 5'8", I NEVER look good in coats that are long and reach the knee. My coats are always either waist length or 3/4" length. Longer coats make me look like I am shorter than I really am, or make me look as if I am drowning in fabric or even worse, as if I am playing "grown-up" (a kid wearing dad's coat!) :) IMO, tall men look good in longer coats, but not me.
Speed00007 (7 years ago)
Very good video. The only suggestion I would offer is for you to show some pictures of the different types of overcoats you where talking about.
Brother Nature (7 years ago)
