A good overcoat should be warm, fit you, and make you look great.

Modern men prefer only knee-length overcoats, which is anywhere between the lower part of the knee to slightly above. Choosing a full-length or knee-length coat is a matter of choice, the full-length coat may be warmer and can make men look a little more seasoned than the knee-length coat.
