The topcoat has been shielding wearers from the elements for centuries and, as evidence of its timelessness, the design has remained relatively unchanged. It is a piece mostly worn over uniforms and suits, and it traditionally exudes professionalism. Today, the topcoat has been tweaked ever so slightly to be in line with modern tastes (shorter in length and with a slimmer silhouette), and men have started wearing the coat in innovative ways. In contemporary fashion, the topcoat can be seen worn over any imaginable outfit — from an Italian three-piece suit to a tailored crew-neck sweatshirt and faded jeans. What this means is that the topcoat has become an essential piece of outerwear fit for most any occasion, beating both the elements and trends at the same time.
