history Overcoat

The modern overcoat appeared during the 19th century and is a tailored adaptation of the military greatcoat, designed to fit over suits and packs. It is made from a protective and weather-resistant fabric, often a high-quality and closely woven wool, to withstand winter weather, with minimal trimmings and decoration. Knee-length and lighter versions are often referred to as topcoats.

The modern overcoat is a tailored adaptation of the military greatcoat, designed to fit over suits and packs. It is made from a protective and weather-resistant fabric, often a high-quality and closely woven wool, to withstand winter weather, with minimal trimmings and decoration. Knee-length and lighter versions are often referred to as topcoats.

 

A number of new easy-fitting overcoat designs appeared during the 19th century, including the Raglan, Ulster and Chesterfield, tailored for travelling or outdoor activities.

 

Early models of the Chesterfield, the first civilian overcoat, contained several changes that remain characteristic for modern examples – understated cut, dark wool, short vent, centre back-seam, single-breasted fly front, side pockets and no cuffs. Above all, it dispensed with the previously obligatory waist seam and was meant to be worn loosely over another garment.
