Traditionally, different overcoat styles were inspired by horseback riding or the military, they have very specific details. Today, those details are very convoluted and so you end up with a coat that is very fashionable but out of style in two or three years, avoid buying that.
Unfortunately, most overcoats today are single-breasted, however, if you think about it, a double-breasted overcoat is much better during the winter because it provides two layers of fabric over your chest rather than one. So if you live in a place where winters get really cold, I suggest you go with a double-breasted overcoat rather than a single breasted.
Also, an overcoat should always have a large-scale pattern so it contrasts with your suit and jacket patterns as well your accessory or scarf patterns. Classic overcoat patterns include maybe a Glenn Check or Prince of Wales check that is oversized, windowpane, most importantly, herringbone.
If you find yourself in Great Britain, definitely make sure to stop by at vintage stores or alternatively, you can go to eBay.co.uk and search for vintage overcoats. Most of the sellers ship worldwide and so you can find a piece that really suits your style on a budget.
It also features a huge poacher pocket which originally was meant for game when you went hunting. In this day and age, if you go to the city, you can maybe put your newspaper in there or your iPad. Sometimes, covert coats also have decorative stitching or a velvet collar.
If you have an office job and you just want one overcoat that you can wear with the most possible occasions, I suggest going with a Navy paletot. Personally, I have a vintage paletot with a black velvet collar and a wonderful fabric that is consisted of black, blue, and gray yarns and because of that, I can easily combine it with any kind of business suit.
For many years, my winter overcoat of choice was a US army wool overcoat in olive. It had the proper fit and length, was styled exactly like a high-quality trenchcoat, and with the included button-in liner was extremely versatile.
I recently purchased an overcoat from JoS. A. Bank. It is a single breasted coat and my concern is that depending on the suit I am wearing underneath, a slight bit of the suit lapel show when the coat is buttoned up. I thought the suit lapel should be completely covered, but the sales person told me it was normal with a single breasted overcoat.
I would ask if you think a trench coat with a liner would fall into the mix I have found mine to be warm enough for most winter days (in Michigan) if I want the length, and I can wear my vintage peacoat for more of a car coat length. Of course I do keep my eyes peeled for true overcoats, but until the right quality/price coat shows up in a thrift store, or a big enough check shows up in my mailbox, I do need to survive with my current combination.

This top coat is a game-changer! I use the Gel Genius Base Coat (which is wonderful in its own right), along with this product. I've had my current color (Save The Queen) on for FOUR days without visible chipping. The edges are still holding up nicely, as well. This is the second time I've used the product, and my last manicure lasted a week without visible chipping. I'm not discriminate in terms of how I use my hands whether I have nail polish on or not. I wash dishes without gloves, clean without gloves, and use hot water when I shower and wash my face. Usually, my nail polish chips within two days. Not the case when using this! This doesn't take forever to dry and it provides nice shiny protection. It's like having an at-home gel manicure without all the equipment. I will definitely recommend this!
This topcoat lasts forever. A second coat the day after my manicure helps assure my polish lasts for up to 14 days. My namils actually grow out before it chips. Just have to wear my garden gloves when working in the garden :-)
