    Overcoat to go with a blazer / suggestions?

    Good afternoon.

    I definitely am in need of an overcoat (I live in Chicago) to wear over a blazer for work. Would love to hear your suggestions..

    I own one that I bought years ago (Nordstrom navy blue but too long and bulky)

    Thank you

    I just got the charcoal B.R. Melton topcoat and it’s pretty nice. Fits with or without a sportcoat in my normal size. Seems fairly warm too

    I recommend buying overcoats in person. They vary so much by fabric, weight and warmth, it’s difficult to know what you’re getting online. As you’re in Chicago you have a lot of options.

    BR Kevin Love Navy Overcoat - I just got mine for this exact purpose. Fits like a dream.

    It's hard to beat the Spier & Mackay line this year.

    Very happy with Banana Republic overcoats. But it's all about the fit, as someone else suggested, try them out in person. J Crew is also a good option.
