Nowadays, it seems that men never wear them anymore. My father always wore overcoats with his suit, as did my grandfather, and my uncles. I don't understand what's wrong with them! They make men look so cleaned up, and prepared. Nowadays, everyone just wears a regular suit.

My husband had an overcoat until recently but he realised that everyone, including him, owns a padded casual jacket and this is what he reaches for in the cold weather. Overcoats, sadly, are old-fashioned although they are smarter than anything else.

I do think they are smart as they say. I also think some people may not like them because they are associated with the mafia era of the 40s.
