Closeouts. The best complement to your finest suit could only be Lauren by Ralph Lauren's full-length top coat, made of the finest, softest worsted wool for an incredibly smooth hand and impeccably refined look.

Ralph Lauren is usually pretty reliable, if not always downright good looking. This coat is wonderful with classic good looks, and is exactly that I'd expect from such a garment. Being able to order it in an L size made for a perfect fit over suits, and its finish and detail are plenty competent. My only gripe is that not long into my wearing of the coat, each of the buttons lost their moorings and required reattachment. Not a huge deal but irritating. Nevertheless, when I see them on sale and in my size, I'm tempted to order another even though I already have one in each color. Highly recommended - I wouldn't be without one.

I have to wear a suit/tie when meeting with customers and I needed a warm and good looking overcoat. This fit the bill. The only thing that I found wrong involved the buttons - the top button was loose and is about to fall off after wearing it over a few days. For the low price I paid I suppose I can get it fixed but it is inconvenient.
I would recommend ordering a 42 which has reviewed to still fit as it's true to size.

MW, I ordered a size 42S based on the sizing chart, I normally wear a size 40 suit. When I got the coat and tried it on over a suit coat, it was large. I would order your normal suit size. I have exchanged my 42S for a 40S, but have not received it to confirm the size.|Hope this helps.

I wear a 42R and bought this coat at that size. It fits perfectly on me, especially when I wear it over a sport/suit coat. I think they make them slightly large for just that purpose.

Pick the 42R. The coat is a heavy weight (which is good) and is sized correctly for overwear.

“This will be my first top coat. I wear a 50R suit. What size should I purchase and would you wear the top coat over the suit?”

The coat will be fine in an occasional light rain, but it is not the type of coat you would want to wear to protect you in a downpour.

Yes,it will get you through a rainy day. But I pair it with a umbrella just to keep from soaking through.

Light rain such as the daily Seattle or Portland drizzle but not a downpour.

“Do the Short, Regular and Long designations apply only to the overall length of the coat, or also to sleeve length? E.g., if I normally wear a 40R suit or sportcoat, would I order this overcoat in 40R, or can I choose between long, short, or regular depending on my overall length preference?”

You will need to measure his chest just below the armpits. A two-finger space should used between the tape measure and the body. That measurement will be equal to the size of the coat. If he is between sizes you should go to the next size up. The "long" sizes will have about 2 more inches in the sleeve length.|Here is the center back length measurement:|Regular 44Â½", Short 43Â½", Long 45Â½", X-Long 46Â½"
