[[caption-width-right:260:They make these tropes look ''good''.]]

Oh sure, most coats in RealLife and fiction are worn for warmth and other kinds of protection, but just as often in fiction, they can be used to say something about a character, or add a slight touch of style to a scene. Whether it's a [[HellBentForLeather leather jacket]], a trench coat, a [[SharpDressedMan suave blazer]], or a [[PrettyInMink fur coat]], these garments can fulfill a lot of tropes.

These tropes can overlap with various other tropes, like CostumePorn, BlingOfWar, RuleOfGlamorous, RuleOfCool.
