How to choose the right men’s overcoat?

To begin with, the first thing which is of high importance is the size of the men’s overcoat. Similar to every type of clothes, the size is the element which matters the most. When it comes to coats, however, they shouldn’t be the exact size which fits your shape. In a men’s overcoat you should be able to move freely without feeling tightness in the shoulders or neck area or feeling any kind of discomfort. Therefore, we at TruClothing, advise you to go with one size bigger as this will not only allow you to feel better and more freely in your men’s overcoat but it is also much easier when combining it with thicker clothes underneath, such as jumper, blouse, blazer, etc.

Another element which is also good to be taken into consideration when choosing a men’s overcoat is the environment and the setting. Every man’s coat should be comfortable to wear, warm and resistant to natural conditions, but it is good to be consistent with the environment as well. Office environment and suits combinations fit more classic, formal and simple colours like black, navy blue, gray, brown. If the environment is not so formal, you can be more creative with colours and bet on brighter palettes.

To determine the length of the coat is the next criteria which shall be considered when choosing the right men’s overcoat. One should have in mind that short men should not prefer and go with the long overcoats, because they will make them visually look shorter. Tall people, on the other hand, should not resort to too short ones, because visually their legs will look even longer and the proportions of the body will be disturbed.

Last but not least, it is important to think about your overall wardrobe, vision and possible combinations that you can make with your men’s overcoat. You need to create a stylish look, and for this purpose you should combine your new men's overcoat with other winter clothes and accessories. And yet, remember to choose such a men’s overcoat which will not only fit you perfectly, but it will also highlight your personal and unique style.
