Covert Coats Go Overt

The covert coat undertook quite a renaissance a few years back. Maybe it was the prodigious use of the coat in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels that started it? Jason Statham was born to wear one. But you can't keep a classic down. The coat started life in the country as a gamekeeper's coat, but was adopted by the gentry and taken to the city where it was favoured by gangsters and toffs alike. The coat gradually moved out of Jermyn Street and onto the high street. And there it stays.
