Autumn is coming closer and closer to us, and with it the return of outerwear. A coat is one of the must-have items in every elegant man’s closet. Even if you prefer a more casual style, for formal occasions a suit coat is a must. How to choose the right coat for your figure, to look good in it and feel confident? See for yourself!
There is no single, designated and appropriate length of the coat for each man. The coat should reach at least halfway to the buttocks, but no further than the knees. However, its length must depend on your height. A tall guy can wear exactly the same model of coat as a short man, but it will not be the same length for them. When measuring coats, take into account first of all how they look on you, not how they are described. Every guy is different, so you need to choose clothes specifically for you, not on the recommendation of a friend taller than you by a head. If you prefer to shop online, an online clothing store should provide the measurements of their products on the website, so get yourself a tailor’s tape measure and know your measurements before you choose a coat
Long coats are usually worn with elegant outfits, such as a tuxedo, while short coats are usually worn with casual outfits. Depending on the occasion, the length of the coat can be graded, and you can choose a coat that fits the situation and creation
The most popular colors for men’s coats are navy blue, black, beige and brown. These are safe and very classic choices that will match most outfits, this is what makes them popular. Dark colors, especially black and navy or gray, are sure shots for formal occasions that require an elegant outfit. For a wedding, prom, ball or banquet where you wear a suit or tuxedo, just choose a dark coat. For everyday outfits, for example for work, going out with friends or for a casual dinner, you can wear a less formal style and a beige, olive or brown coat
For a coat to be nice, durable and wear well, it is good that it is made of natural materials. Unfortunately, synthetic fabrics very quickly become unsightly and dry, and the coat should be a part of your closet, which will serve you for at least a few seasons. Natural fabrics are also more comfortable to wear, fit better and are more durable. Natural fabrics also have the advantage of being able to adjust their thermal properties to the weather conditions. A winter coat made of wool will be suitable for both cold and early winter, while a light powder coat will do its job just as well in early spring and autumn
Men’s elegance is an important but rarely discussed topic, which means that guys who are beginning to take an interest in style have to do a lot of digging before they find information on how to choose clothes. If you feel like exploring the topic in more depth, it is worth looking for textbooks on fashion for gentlemen or find YouTube channels on the subject, where the knowledge is presented in a very accessible way.
