Men in overcoats are one of the best parts of winter. I live on the West Coast where overcoat sightings are rare, but when I’m East I’m living the life. I’ll follow a good looking coat down the street. Extra points for grownup shoes. And hats and scarves and gloves. Here in California we don’t see these often.
I wish it could be winter all year and I wish all men owned coats – for warmth, of course, but mostly for my enjoyment. Here’s a starter gallery. I’ll be adding to it so if you send a picture, I’ll put it here for overcoat oglers to enjoy. After exhaustive research, which consisted of shopping at Target, it seems something more all-encompassing might be fair. Maybe just Men In Coats.
This opens the subject to all kinds of coats. Men who work outside and need to bundle up. Firemen. Cowboys in cowboy jackets. Basically all men in all coats. I am personally acquainted with men who own spiffy coats and I want them to know how much I appreciate looking at them. Here are some of them.
(First photo above) Dan John Miller, you’re an inspiration. That’s him in the middle. I met him when he was in the movie, Walk The Line, which featured a song written by my mother. Dan John played Luther Perkins, guitar player in Johnny Cash’s band, the Tennessee Two. Based in Detroit, he’s a busy actor and musician and lately picked up a nice award for voicing audio books. Extra points for the hat.
Then The Grand got involved, nominating Brendon Urie. With The Grand, it’s always going to be Brendon Urie in any category.
