Top 10 Best Coats and Jackets for Men of 2017
During winter, it is important to protect yourself from the cold, wind, snow, and rain. You will need a garment that contains thick insulation so that your body will stay warm. The insulated layers are important because it provides warmth and perspiration management when used during winter activities. The most common garment that we use is a jacket. However, some people prefer to use coats. Both may have the same function, but jacket and coat have differences from each other.
Coats are usually longer than jackets. Coats go down to the thighs while jackets only reach the waist. Coats have long sleeves and closed by using buttons, zippers, hook-and-loop fasteners, toggles, a belt, or a combination of some of these. Some also include features like collars, shoulder straps, and hoods. On the other hand, jackets typically have sleeves, and fasten in the front or slightly on the side. Jackets are generally lighter, tight-fitting, and less insulating than a coat. Some jackets only serve as a fashion accessory, while others serve as protective clothing.
Back then, there are several differences between coats and jackets. However, nowadays, the distinction between the two had blurred and people started to call jackets as coats and vice versa.
