A woman is cold. A man takes off his coat and gives it to her. She goes around for some scenes in a men's suit jacket or leather coat.

The basis for this trope is the idea that men are duty-bound to take care of women. The KnightInShiningArmor will always do this and a {{jerkass}} can reveal they might be a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.

Very much TruthInTelevision. Men's formal clothing is usually warmer and in more pieces than women's formal clothing. It is also bigger because men are normally bigger overall so a woman's jacket wouldn't necessarily fit, giving her less reason to offer it to him. Because of this it's usually AlwaysMale to AlwaysFemale but there are variations: female-male, male-male, female-female.

Because of the romantic nature of the trope, it is often used for ShipTease but [[Administrivia/TropesAreFlexible this is not required]]. The coat receiver could be a child, child-like, sick or otherwise vulnerable, because the core is about taking care of the other person.

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''{{AKIRA}}'', before the final battle with Tetsuo in the movie, Kei is wearing Kaneda's biker jacket while warming up near a fire.
* ''{{Manga/Arisa}}'': Tsubasa gets a jacket from Manabe when they're both stuck on the mountain. He also says TakeOffYourClothes.
* Kurama gives Nana his suit jacket in ''Manga/ElfenLied'', although this has less to do with chills and more to do with preserving her modesty.
* In ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', Simon wraps Nia in his coat after [[spoiler:rescuing her from [[HumanoidAbomination Anti-Spiral]]]]. Doubles as a ShirtlessScene and ''triples'' as a rare male OfCorsetsSexy for Simon.
* Lelouch gives his Zero cape to [[spoiler:Euphemia]] in the island episode of ''Anime/CodeGeass'' while her clothes dry out. Later, in ''R2'', Lelouch gives his jacket to his personal ActionGirl Kallen, who has been running around in a PlayboyBunny suit since the beginning of the season. Certain shippers went {{squee}}.
* In the first episode of ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'', Hayate gives his jacket to Nagi when she's freezing. In chapter 262: [[spoiler: Athena tells Hayate she's cold, and he offers her his jacket, completely oblivious to her subtext - she wants him to give her a cuddle. He catches on eventually.]]
** Although not quite implied that it's because she's cold, Hinagiku is seen wearing a male's (possibly Hayate's) jacket as she runs from the beach where she's just played beach volleyball, so she's in a bikini.
* In ''Manga/BeautyPop'' Kiri spills coffee on her sweater on a chilly day and Narumi gives her his heavy uniform jacket on the way home.
* In ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'' Kouji gives his coat to Izumi in an episode where they are going through a snow field. It feels more like ShipTease than actual romantic involvement.
* In a recent cover page arc of ''Manga/OnePiece'', Kalifa is seen to be wearing Jyabura's shirt in place of the dress that was torn up in a fight after first having draped herself in a blanket. Whether he gave it to her or she took it from him is left unexplained.
* Played with multiple variations in ''Manga/{{Gantz}}'': Kishimoto wakes up teleported into Gantz' pre-game apartment naked for her introductory full-frontal fanservice. Kurono stares transfixed (and in breast-shock) and lovestruck (or lust-struck), but makes no move to offer his coat. Kato, the chivalrous one, has no coat so orders Kurono to offer his.
* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', after Winry has a breakdown because she can't shoot [[spoiler: Scar, the murderer of her parents]], Edward gently places his coat around her shoulders because she is suffering from shock and still shaking. In a rare variation, this could be viewed as being completely platonic at this point in the anime / manga, [[spoiler: even though they eventually become the OfficialCouple]].
** After Edward and Alphonse's first, disastrous battle with Scar there's a gender-flipped version. Lieutenant Hawkeye puts her uniform jacket over Edward's shoulders because he, too, is in shock on top of having a broken (automail) arm after fighting in heavy rain.
** The gender flip is possible because Edward is smaller than Hawkeye.
* In ''Lightnovel/FullMetalPanic'', Sousuke lends Kaname his jacket after he rescues her from being kidnapped. In this case it's less of a "lend" and more of a "there's no chance in hell I'm going out there with nothing but a paper gown on, so hand that jacket over or I'll smack you."
* Negi in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' once did this late in the [[ClassTrip School Field Trip]] arc with Asuna after her '[[ClothingDamage encounter]]' with Fate, [[ModestyTowel handing her a towel]] (this scene was one of the first clues of the series' [[GrowingTheBeard move into the dramatic]]).
** Inverted far earlier in the series, when Asuna gives her jacket to Negi during the library arc.
** Played differently when Chisame was [[FountainOfYouth magically aged-down]] with over-sized clothes, causing Negi to give her his coat.
* In ''LightNovel/ScrappedPrincess'', [[TheRival Chris Armalite]] gave his captive Winnia Chester his cape because she's cold, while they await Shannon's arrival in an early episode.
* In ''Manga/SoulEater'', Marie once teased Joe's tendency to dress lightly, saying he wouldn't be able to perform this trope. Oblivious to her joke, he promptly ripped off his shirt and used that instead.
* Rare female/female example: Motoko gives her cloak to Shinobu after her sword technique shreds Shinobu's clothes in ''Manga/LoveHina''. [[HoYay/{{Anime}} Take that as you will]].
* Another female/female example from ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'': Clare gives her cape to Jean after [[spoiler: Jean nearly awakens]] and is naked.
* Not really a case of temperature, but in ''Anime/TokyoMewMew: a la Mode'', Tasuku sneaks Berri out of her school for a day of fun playing hookie. Berri says that people will notice she's wearing her school uniform, so Tasuku just gives her his hoodie jacket to wear.
* In the ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' NonSerialMovie ''The Phantom of Baker Street'', this occurs as a three-fold maneuver. Ayumi shivers, so [[ShorterMeansSmarter Conan]] gives her his blazer, then Mitsuhiko realizes that, as a guy, he needs to do something similar, and gives his jacket to Haibara Ai, then Genta, not wishing to be the only guy not doing this, gives his jacket to Ran.
** As Genta was the only boy who was big enough for his jacket to fit Ran, this made a good bit of sense, even if it was coincidence. Also, Mitsuhiko likes both Ai and Ayumi, Ayumi likes Conan, and Conan (Shinichi) likes Ran.
* ''Manga/{{Inuyasha}}'' finds an excuse to give Kagome his fire-rat cloak every once in a while. The cloak is magically fire-proof and knife-proof, so the trope can be played straight even when Kagome is fully dressed. [=InuYasha=] gives Kagome his kimono repeatedly over the course of the show, but never because she was cold - the kimono functions as armor, so usually he gives it to her as protection, although he did give it to her once when her clothes had been stolen.
* ''Anime/YuGiOh'': Yugi does this for Anzu/Téa when they're trapped in the Arctic-like sector of Noa's virtual world. The two blush and turn shy for a few seconds.
** And a non-romantic version when Kaiba drapes his trenchcoat over the sleeping Mokuba.
* Miyako and Will from ''Manga/PrivatePrince'' invoke this [[spoiler: when they get reconciled after having broken up.]] JustifiedTrope as Will's clothes has been soaked with cold water [[spoiler: after Miyako's AlmightyMom went MamaBear on him.]]
* The first ''GhostInTheShell'' movie has Batou draping his jacket over the shoulders of his partner, Major Kusanagi, after the fight in the shallow pool with a ghost-hacked perp, which she used her thermoptic camouflage for (which in the context of this movie meant that she was practically naked).
** In ''Innocence'', Batou silently gives his jacket to the SexBot that Motoko's consciousness is currently inhabiting, and she accepts with a minor comment. This serves as a meaningful CallBack to the first movie, but it also serves the purpose of allowing the viewer to easily distinguish Motoko from the dozens of identical gynoids in the scene.
* ''LightNovel/CrusherJoe'' has a rare female to female (from male) version. Joe and [[ActionGirl Alfin]] have finally located the MacGuffinGirl, who's been in cold-sleep the whole movie. While Joe gives cover fire, Alfin picks up the girl, after first liberating a lab coat ("Give me that you pervert!") from one of the doctors.
* In chapter 10 of ''Manga/BetrayalKnowsMyName'' in one of the many HoYay moments they have Luka puts his jacket on Yuki.
* In episode 95 of ''Manga/FairyTail'', Natsu gives Lucy his cloak when everybody gets caught in the rain.
* In the ''Manga/SaintBeast'' [=OVAs=], Judas gives his cloak away twice. Once to Shin in the typical fashion, and the other time to Pandora after saving him from an AttemptedRape because he had ClothingDamage of the shameful kind.
* In one episode of ''[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Manga/MirumoDePon?from=Main.MirumoDePon/ Mirumo De Pon]]'', Kaede and Setsu are trapped in the penguin room in the Zoo ran by Matsukake's family. When Kaede shivers with cold due to the room's temperature, Setsu puts his coat on her.
* ''IrresponsibleCaptainTylor''. Although apparently not cold, Empress Azalyn wears Tylor's UPSF coat with [[HaveANiceDaySmile smiley face button]] while he's her captive and 'pet', in a sign that she's fallen for him.
* This happened between Takashi and Saeko in ''Manga/HighschoolOfTheDead'', after he drove their Humvee into a river and unintentionally soaked her completely.
* In ''BlueExorcist,'' [[LovableAlphaBitch Izumo]] and [[NiceGirl Paku]] are attacked by a ghoul in the locker room. Paku is injured, Izumo's own {{Familiar}}s turn on her and the rest of the class all wind up in the locker room as the demon flees. After the fight, [[AntiAntiChrist Rin]] sees Izumo hiding behind the lockers in her underwear, berating herself for being unable to help her only friend. Rin gives her his shirt and tells her to get out of there before anyone else can see her. The chapter/episode then ends with a silly scene of Rin rejoining the others and trying to handwave the fact that he's half naked.
* A brotherly version occurs in ''Manga/MagiLabyrinthOfMagic'' where Koumei gives his outer robe to his younger brother Kouha after he was injured and exhausted after a gruelling battle with [[spoiler: the Medium]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Near the end of ''Comicbook/SpiderIsland'' [[Franchise/SpiderMan Peter]] notes that [[FieryRedhead Mary Jane]] has suffered a lot of ClothingDamage and offers her the shirt of his costume. Definite ShipTease, given that they used to be engaged[[note]]Actually they used to be ''married'' for twenty years, if you ignore that CosmicRetcon[[/note]] and Peter broke up with his new {{Love Interest|s}} during this storyline.
* In BatmanBlackAndWhite, [[MultipleChoicePast one version of how The Joker took over the Red Hood Mob]] involves this: He was an enforcer for a ruthless and jealous mob boss, and made sure he was seen on the town with the boss's wife. One night, once he's sure there's a hit out on him for it, he offers her his trademark purple jacket and hat outside a movie theater. When the hitmen drive by, they fire at her thinking it's him, and the boss ends up going down for his own wife's murder, leaving [[NoNameGiven The Man Who Would Be Joker]] in charge.
-->"It's a good joke, as long as it doesn't happen to ''you''."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* In ''Franchise/TheGreenHornet'' fanfic ''Bad Medicine'', the Green Hornet notices that the narrator is shaking from both cold and shock [[spoiler:she had just killed the man who had abducted and tortured her in self defense]] and, like the gentleman he is, drapes his trademark green overcoat over her shoulders.
* In the ''Manga/MaidSama'' fanfic ''{{FanFic/Seduction}}'', Tora gives Sarakshi his coat after he sees her shiver from the cold while standing in the window.
* In the ''Manga/SoulEater''/''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' crossover titled ''A Fairy's Soul'', Aisha/Layla is standing out in the rain and is shivering in the cold. Soul finds her and gives her his jacket. Aisha returns the jacket to him the next day.
* In ''TheArianaBlackSeries''' fourth story, [[BigBrotherInstinct Harry]] offers [[MarySue Ariana]] his sweater after Malfoy's AttemptedRape tears her blouse. Which is sort of a PlotHole: the author apparently forgot that earlier Ariana had [[DressedInLayers been wearing a robe over her clothes]], so she could have easily just put that back on.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fanfic ''Fanfic/GimmeShelter'', after meeting Fleur de Lis, who has just spent the last several minutes walking through a torrential downpour without so much as a coat[[note]]She didn't have time to get hers after being kicked out by her former boyfriend, [[PrinceCharmless Prince Blueblood]][[/note]], he offers to take her to his home to warm up, and puts his coat over her back on the way.
* In "DisneyHighSchool," [[LovableJock Herc]] gives [[HoneyTrap Meg]] his sweater in [[http://morloth88.deviantart.com/art/Fruitful-search-411020867 this strip]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* Played with in ''Film/{{Tremors}}''. When the two male heroes (Fred Ward and Creator/KevinBacon) and the heroine are trapped overnight on some rocks by the graboids, Fred Ward's character gives the heroine Bacon's coat, rather than his own, because he's [[ShipperOnDeck playing matchmaker between the two of them]].
* In ''Film/QuantumOfSolace'', James gives his jacket to Camille when they're stuck in an underground pit and she's in a skimpy LittleBlackDress.
* Cal gives his coat to Rose in ''Film/{{Titanic}}''. Justified since it was night in the middle of the North Atlantic in April and she'd been slogging through freezing seawater. Unfortunately, he forgot [[spoiler:he put the Heart of the Ocean in it...]]
* In ''{{Under the Rainbow}}'', Chevy Chase's character gives his suit jacket to Carrie Fisher's ([[{{Fanservice}} very scantily-clad]]) character when they get LockedInAFreezer.
* One of the few tropes played straight and serious in ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}'', with Lone Starr offering his jacket to Vespa. She asks if he will be cold, and he replies that cold never bothers him. [[HypocriticalHumor Then he shivers]].
* John Dillinger does this twice in ''Film/PublicEnemies''. The first time he gives a bank teller the gang abducted as a hostage his coat and hat just before they dump her in the countryside. The second time he gives Billie his coat when they leave the dance hall where they met for the first time and she is shivering because her own coat is thin (and cheap).
* ''Film/TheRocketeer'': The BigBad has captured the {{Love Interest|s}} and is taking her to his GlobalAirship in the middle of the night. He asks her if she's cold. She says no. He asks if she's sure. She turns her head in disgust. It also doubles as a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for Jenny as she's in [[DamselInDistress a hopeless situation]] and still gives the villain a big [[ParentheticalSwearing damn you to Hell]]. Her response when the BigBad offers the coat?
--> '''Jenny:''' I'd rather freeze.
* Played innocently in 1958's ''Film/HorrorOfDracula'', where Van Helsing gives his coat to a scared little girl, and then tells her [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming "You look like a teddy bear."]]
* In ''Film/TheNet'', Angela and Devlin are walking down a beach at night, and noticing that Angela is cold, Devlin wraps a sash around her [[BareYourMidriff bared midriff]]. [[spoiler: This is of course all part of Devlin's ploy to steal the disk that Angela has come into posession of, and then kill her.]]
* In ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace: The Movie'', Justin offers his jacket to Alex in the infamous campfire scene. Given that they're ''brother and sister'', this only adds to the UnresolvedSexualTension[=/=]RelationshipWritingFumble[=/=]BrotherSisterIncest their relationship is built on. [[DefiedTrope She refuses the coat.]]
* In ''Film/SherlockHolmesAGameOfShadows'', Moriarty actually places a fur coat around Holmes' shoulders when he sits down for their chess game. Just another HoYay moment in a movie that's full of them...
* In ''Film/TheXFilesFightTheFuture'', Mulder wraps Scully in his coat after rescuing her from the cryo chamber.
* Film/{{Thor}} gives Jane his jacket before he storms the SHIELD base, having noticed it may rain.
* A non-romantic instance in ''Film/MirrorMask'', when Helena's dad offers her his coat on the balcony of the apartment.
-->It's freezing out here. Come on. You can wear Dad's coat.
* Played deliberately by Catherine in the 1999 version of ''Film/TheThomasCrownAffair''. She deliberately maneuvers Thomas into a cold cellar, then comments on how cold it is. Naturally, he gives her his jacket, allowing her to steal his keys.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* An interesting variation occurs in ''[[Literature/TheAstonishingAdventuresOfFanboyAndGothGirl Goth Girl Rising]]'' by Barry Lyga. After Fanboy and his mom come to get Kyra from the police station, there's a scene where he comments on how cold she must be, but rather than offering his coat, he gives her his hat. (This [[ItMakesSenseInContext makes sense when you remember that she shaved her head earlier in the book.]]) Leads to a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming later when he tells her that his change in personality was because of her and she says that's even better than him giving her his hat.
* In ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' Edward gives Bella his jacket in a cold restaurant. To be fair, he is waiting for her to go into shock after [[AttemptedRape nearly being raped]] and [[OurVampiresAreDifferent it's not like he would notice the cold anyway]].
* In the ''Literature/EighthDoctorAdventures'' novels, the Doctor destroys his home planet and [[TraumaInducedAmnesia loses his memory]]. His TARDIS at the time also happens to be a [[DeadpanSnarker rather]] [[JerkAss unkind]] [[SpaceshipGirl young woman]] named [[IronicNickname Compassion]], and she decides the best solution to the problem is to leave him alone on Earth for over a hundred years. Fitz, his other companion and {{Heterosexual Life Partner|s}}[[note]]well, "heterosexual" is pretty inaccurate on both sides, as they're both {{bi|TheWay}}, but Bisexual Life Partner doesn't sound right[[/note]], puts his leather coat and [[NiceHat fedora]] on the unconscious Doctor before Compassion ditches him.
* In ''King Hereafter'' by Dorothy Dunnett, Thorfinn gives his cloak to Groa before they go outside--but they're in the middle of TheMasochismTango, and the conversation ends abruptly after she pushes his BerserkButton.
* In the beginning of ''[[Literature/TheGirlWhoCircumnavigatedFairylandInAShipOfHerOwnMaking The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making]]'' by Creator/CatherynneMValente, The heroine, September, is given a velvet smoking jacket by a Green Wind in the form of a fine gentleman. The jacket is very eager to please and fits her immediately. Throughout the course of the story it becomes various things, mainly waterproofing for the titular ship, and lengthens into a dress when September loses hers.
* Found, of all places, in ''From Baghdad With Love'', a (true) story otherwise about dogs rescued and adopted by American troops in Iraq. The narrator introduces a female war correspondent who forewent niceties such as bedrolls and blankets, sleeping on the bare ground in the same clothes all the time in order to carry more important things like her journalism equipment. He mentions that in her notes she often woke up with a Marine poncho draped over her.
* Played with in ''The Crocodile on the Sandbank'', the first Literature/AmeliaPeabody mystery. Amelia finds a young woman who has fainted in the streets of Rome and is appalled that none of the men nearby have invoked this trope. Amelia proceeds to confiscate the coat of the nearest man (insulting him in the process), and uses it to cover the woman.
* Gender-flipped quasi-example: Eldest Whistler, upon finding a murdered man she vaguely knew, removes her greatcoat to cover his [[ShamefulStrip nakedness]] in ''Literature/ABrothersPrice''. He's dead and can't feel the cold, but it's shameful to leave the poor man like that.
* In ''Film/ThePianist'' (and TheFilmOfTheBook), the Jewish refugee Wladyslaw Szpilmann is sheltered by a sympathetic German officer, who gives him food, blankets, and his own coat against the winter cold. The last item very nearly results in disaster when the Russians arrive in Warsaw.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'':
** Angel lends Buffy his coat (because she's just the last hope of humanity, she can't be expected to dress herself adequately) and Xander gets pissed, because he [[GenreSavvy knows what it implies]]. Sure enough, Buffy keeps the coat and is seen wearing it in future episodes.
** Spike also does this for Drusilla in their first appearance. This doesn't make a lot of sense, given that neither of them have body heat. It can be assumed he wanted to make her happy with the gesture.
** Xander (having taken on the personality of a macho soldier due to a spell) does this for Cordelia with his army shirt in "Halloween", foreshadowing their future relationship.
** A teenager does this for Dawn when they're out parking -- he turns out to be a vampire, and Dawn is seen at the end of the episode cradling his letterman jacket after staking him.
* ''Series/{{Angel}}'': Faith defies this trope when she first arrives in Los Angeles. A sleazy looking guy (clearly a pimp) offers his 'protection'. She shivers and when the guy is taking off his leather jacket to fulfill this trope she beats him up [[CombatPragmatist while his arms are restricted]].
%%* Played straight in "Series/{{Chuck}} vs. the Delorean".
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** In the Christmas special "The Runaway Bride", the Doctor gives Donna his jacket. She's fully dressed, but since she's wearing a sleeveless wedding gown and it's Christmas... Donna undercuts the attempt at chivalry somewhat by commenting "God you're skinny... this wouldn't fit a rat." Though she has a point.
** Later, in "The Poison Sky", the Doctor gives his coat to hospital gown clad Martha, whose clothes were stolen by her clone.
** In ''The Vampires of Venice'', the Doctor replaces the stripper who was supposed to [[JumpingOutOfACake jump out of a cake]] at Rory's stag party, and thinks the stripper must be cold.
-->That reminds me, there's a girl standing outside in a bikini. Could someone let her in and give her a jumper? Lucy. Lovely girl. Diabetic.
** In "Cold War" the Doctor and his companion materialises on a sinking Soviet submarine, leading to the cocktail dress she's wearing [[SexySoakedShirt getting soaked]]. When she wakes up, she's wearing a Soviet officer's jacket that she wears for the rest of the episode.
* ''Series/TheWestWing'': Donna comes outside her apartment in the ice and snow in a ballgown, without a coat of course, and Josh immediately drapes his coat around her shoulders.
** In an earlier episode, Donna wears Josh's coat to go outside because it's warmer than hers. He doesn't give it to her in this instance; she just takes it and he complains to no avail.
** In another episode, Zoey is heading outside to light the White House Christmas tree with her father. She's not dressed for the occasion because the duty was supposed to belong to her nephew, but he's throwing a tantrum because his grandpa hasn't had time for him all day. Her ex-boyfriend Charlie immediately loans her his coat, and she replies, "You're a prince, Charlie," revealing the renewed affection between them.
* In one episode of ''Series/AshesToAshes'', Gene Hunt sees that Alex is shivering and looking unwell. His remedy for that is to wrap her in his coat and drag her downstairs to a bar (resulting in her looking rather ridiculous as she's already wearing her own jacket). Of course, this being Gene, he grabs his coat right back when he's called away.
* Happens in an episode of ''Series/MyThreeSons''. Steve goes to an office stag dinner, which starts off as a rather dignified affair--until a go-go dancer in a tasselled bikini shows up to entertain the group. The cops show up to put an end to the party, leaving the poor woman unable to obtain her (apparently more decent) street clothes. Steve does the gentlemanly thing and gives her his jacket to cover herself as they escape the party.
* In the ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' episode "Hilda and Zelda: The Teenage Years," Gordie offers his jacket to Aunt Zelda while she is disguised as a fellow teenager. She ''is'' cold and takes the gesture at face value, oblivious to the romantic implications of the trope; she's surprised when Gordie later starts making advances on her.
* Clark Kent has done this on a few occasions on ''Series/{{Smallville}}'' thanks to the fact that he almost always wears a jacket. Most rescuees were girls, but one was a little boy who had been aged into a teenager, tearing his clothes.
* On ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld,'' Cory does this for Topanga at one point. The jacket ends up becoming a minor plot point in that episode.
* On ''Series/That70sShow'', Kelso is trying to win Jackie back by proving that he can be romantic, and he goes on an ice-fishing trip with Jackie and most of the rest of the gang. First, Eric and Donna play this trope perfectly straight, right in front of them, and Donna is pleased with this. Next, Jackie sets Kelso up to make the same offer (saying, "I'm cold, Michael"), and yet, it still doesn't occur to him to play the role expected of him. Fez is also present, and is a rival for Jackie's affections, and naturally he is not as blind as Kelso to the possibilities of impressing Jackie by being generous.
* In the second series finale of ''Series/CallTheMidwife'', Dr Turner finds [[spoiler:Sister Bernadette -- with whom he has been madly in love for months, but who, unfortunately for them both because she returns his affections in equal measure, is a nun -- on the side of a foggy English country road after her bout with tuberculosis. She's just been released from the sanatorium and caught the wrong bus -- also she's left the Order because she wants to be with him. The first thing he does is check her temperature. The second thing is wrap her up in his overcoat and hold it closed around her while they admit that yes, they're certain they want to spend the rest of their lives together, and oh by the way maybe they should trade first names now]]. It is ''adorable''.
* Done twice with Charlotte and Declan from ''Series/{{Revenge}}''. The first time at a party after they went swimming in the ocean, and the next after [[spoiler: Amanda]] fell off a balcony and they were waiting at the hospital.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* There's an old song involving a young girl being offered a coat, first by an older man and then by a younger one that she's interested in.
--> "Are you cold?"
--> "'Bout to freeze"
--> "Would you like my coat?"
--> "Just the sleeves."
--> "Full or empty?"
--> "Empty, please" for the former then "Full, please" for the latter.
* Mentioned in the Music/JustinTimberlake song ''Like I Love You''- "Here baby, put on my jacket".
* Also mentioned in the Craig David song ''Fill Me In'':
--> "So I gave you my jacket for you to hold,
--> Told you to wear it 'cause you felt cold."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* In ''VideoGame/StarOceanTheSecondStory'', a Private Action in a snow town involves MsFanservice Celine whining about being cold. Claude tells her she should have put on some clothes and she explains that she cannot use her magic if she covers up her runes (which are on her inner thighs).
* After the Christmas Party in ''Franchise/TokimekiMemorial'', [[spoiler: Mira Kagami]] comes without a party coat because [[spoiler: she's from such a poor household that doesn't have enough money for one, barely being able to afford a dress]]. After the party, if she's in [[LuminescentBlush Tokimeki State]] with the protagonist, they'll go back to home together and she'll sneeze, prompting the protagonist to give her his coat. She pushes the trope to ComfortingComforter zone by taking his arm put herself close to him, so she can give him some warmth in return. And on top of that, she'll give her his coat back a few days later... [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming with all its little tears sewn off.]]
* Implied in some form in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}} Portable'', in the tenth and final scene of Shinjiro Aragaki's Social Link with the female protagonist. After the two of them go out to the shrine at night to talk, Shinjiro admits he'd like to stay out there a little longer, "...but aren't you cold? Hey, c'mere."
* In ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'', one of the earliest events in Shizune's route has Hisao putting his school jacket on her as they run errands in a very cold day. Namely, they had bet on carrying a very big box and Shizune lost, so she's carrying it all alone despite Hisao's protest; then it gets cold and Hisao decides to at least do something for her, and puts the jacket on her.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* ''Webcomic/NoNeedForBushido'' does this early on in [[http://www.noneedforbushido.com/archive.php?strip_id=18 this strip]].
* In ''Webcomic/GeneralProtectionFault'', Nick gives his coat to Ki while stepping out of their car to discuss their feelings for each other after his "date" with Trudy results in him confessing that he's in love with her. Later, in the "Rendezvous a Paris" arc, Fooker gives his coat to Sharon. In both cases, the female characters are wearing sleeveless dresses.
* After the restaurant explodes in "Not A Good Idea" in ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'', Torg gives Sasha his flannel to wear over her dress.
* In ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'', Sven [[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1766 gives his sweater to Hannelore]] during their "date" (she's not actually interested in him, just wanted to see how dates go).
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'': Terry gives his coat to [[DatingCatwoman Melanie]] in her first episode. She's still wearing it when they part, but somehow Terry manages to be wearing it in the next scene.

[[folder:Real Life]]
%% proven where? See eg http://theconversation.com/mondays-medical-myth-men-are-hotter-than-women-6738
%%* It's been proven that women have a lower body temperature than men do, so they get cold more easily than men.
* A classic late at night at formal outdoors parties. Women's formal wear tends to emphasise lots of fabric around the legs and little around the body, while men's formal wear is the opposite.
* Any training in first aid and basic life-saving will emphasise the need to keep any injured or sick people warm. As the one giving care, one is usually in good shape and mobile, unless the poor person on the ground.

!!Variations:

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* At the end of "Someday in the Rain" in ''[[LightNovel/SuzumiyaHaruhi The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya]]'', Kyon acquired not one but ''two'' girls' uniform jackets while he was napping in the cold club room. Earlier in the episode, Mikuru gave him her scarf as well.
* {{Gender inverted|Trope}} in ''Anime/EdenOfTheEast:'' Saki meets the AmnesiacHero, Akira, when he's standing outside the White House with a cell phone, a gun, and [[NakedOnArrival literally nothing else]]. Amusingly, she gives him her hat and scarf, ''then'' her jacket. A few minutes later he also manages to get pants from a random male pedestrian.
* ''Max Jenius'' has one of her BridgeBunnies cover him with her uniform's jacket in his sleep, in a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGbFo4_o6oQ Macross Seven omake]] episode. Because he's just THAT awesome.

* In ''Disney/TheTiggerMovie,'' Rabbit takes off his jacket and gives it to Piglet when they walk through a snowstorm, which makes sense since Piglet is a lot smaller and not covered in fur.
* In ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', Kristoff and Olaf are rushing Anna back to Arendelle to save her life after [[spoiler:Elsa accidentally curses her to freeze to death]]. Kristoff is seen taking off his hat and putting it on her head to try and keep her warm.

* Inverted in ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk''. Creator/LivTyler stays well dressed throughout the movie (when she gets [[SexySoakedShirt soaked while wearing a white shirt]], the camera studiously shows nothing), but Creator/EdwardNorton keeps incurring ClothingDamage. At one point she lends him her coat, and it gets trashed. It's adorable.
* Mocked in ''Film/WetHotAmericanSummer''. Two camp counselors are out on an awkward date, and the boy offers the girl his jacket. She puts it on and he says "I'm gonna need that back," which she interprets as playful flirting. He insists: "No, seriously. Give it back right now."
* ''Film/RebelWithoutACause'', Jim offers his jacket to Plato, who isn't female.
* In ''Rivers Edge'' Matt offers Clarissa his jacket because he thinks he's supposed to (the film is about detachment and alienation in teenagers), but she dismisses his attempt at by-the-book storytelling. The next cut she's wearing it.
* ''Franchise/StarWars'':
** Leia drapes a cloak around Luke's shoulders when he's recovering from the shock of Ben's [[MyDeathIsJustTheBeginning apparent]] death at Vader's hands. It's more a gesture of sympathy/comfort, but it still fits here. The irony that she just witnessed her entire home planet's destruction, while he lost a mentor he had known for all of three days, is pointed out in the ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' "Blue Harvest" parody.
** Happens in ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'', too. Padmé drapes Anie in a blanket because SpaceIsCold. Or at least colder than the very hot Tatooine.
* ''Film/PrincessOfThieves'' contains a subversion, where Prince Philip gives his coat to Connor, in what might be seen as HoYay.

* In his book ''Couplehood'' Paul Reiser expresses great indignity that such a phenomenon must exist. In particular he's annoyed that some women refuse to take a coat with them when they leave the house, forcing the guy to give her his coat later. After all, he could see this coming and yet he's the one who ends up cold.
* ''Creeper'' by David Morrell. In order to facillitate escape from that chapter's threat, the hero dresses the girl in clothing... taken from a shotgun victim. So, yeah.
* ''Literature/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone'': In a rare male-on-male instance, in the hut on the rock, Hagrid gives Harry his jacket to keep warm in during the night.

* In the ''Series/That70sShow'' episode "Ice Shack", when Kelso is trying to impress Jackie and get back together with her, Eric and Donna deliberately demonstrate this to give Kelso an idea. However, when Jackie immediately replies, "I'm cold, too," Kelso completely misses the point and replies, "Well, Jackie, I can't control the weather!" Fez is happy to oblige.
* An especially amusing example on ''Series/{{Leverage}}''. Nate is actually being "judged" by a third party on how well he does on his date with Sophie, [[spoiler: with whom he's already the OfficialCouple]]. The third party almost knocks him down a few points for sitting Sophie in a chill, but GenreSavvy Nate invokes this trope by draping his coat around her shoulders. Once the third party is gone, practical Sophie passes the coat to Nate, who immediately puts it back on.
* ''Series/{{Friends}}''
** "The One With The Proposal", Chandler and Monica are out on a date. Feeling cold (considering she's wearing a thin dress), Monica asks if she can borrow Chandler's jacket. Unknown to her, he has an engagement ring hidden in the pocket but of course can't tell her and makes up the excuse that if he gives her his jacket, ''he'' will be cold.
** "The One Where They’re Up All Night", the gang are all standing on the roof waiting for a comet to appear. Everyone wants to go home and Monica says that she and Chandler have to go because "Chandler's getting chilly"....and the camera pans to Chandler standing in Monica's pink jacket with the hood up.
* In an episode of ''Series/{{NCIS}}'', Gibbs is talking to a young couple at night (a marine fell through the roof of their car). Gibbs asks the girl if she is cold, and she says yes. Instead of giving her ''his'' jacket, he yanks the boy's jacket off, and gives it to her. Who says chivalry is dead? [[note]] The girl was daughter of a Marine, and the guy was a total jerk. Gibbs was trying to teach the guy about chivalry. [[/note]]
* In ''Series/TheOfficeUS'', Dwight is comforting a crying Pam and instinctively starts to do this, before realizing that they're inside and it's actually a little hot. He ties the sweater around his waist instead.
** In "New Leads" Andy and Erin are at the dump looking for the new sales leads that were accidentally thrown away. Andy is cold and Erin takes off her coat and puts it on him claiming she has "warm blood". This leads to them having their first kiss.
* In the ''Series/CurbYourEnthusiasm'' episode "The Korean Bookie", Larry takes a jacket from a woman (though it's his jacket, and she took it without asking).
* Discussed on HowIMetYourMother. While on a date, Ted and his date discover they'd gone out together two years prior, and it did not go well. One of her complaints was hinting to him how cold she was as they walked down the city streets, and he did not offer his coat.
* A variation occurs in the ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' pilot, when River comes out of the [[GirlInABox cryo storage box]] naked and obviously freezing and shivering. Despite all the male characters present, the only person who gives River a coat -- or ''any'' clothing -- is [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold Inara]].
** To be fair, she was the only person wearing more than one layer of clothing.
* A great subversion in ''Series/MenBehavingBadly'' where Gary is attempting a romance a woman who isn't his long term girlfriend. While taking a romantic walk along Worthing beach he notices she's cold and starts to remove it to give to her in a chivalrous gesture. He gets it about a 1/4 way off before realising how cold it really is and suggesting they go inside instead.
* Parodied at one point in ''Series/{{Eureka}}''; Carter and Allison enter a suddenly and mysteriously cold Cafe Diem, and Carter offers Allison the orange traffic vest he's wearing, as payback for a comment she made earlier. She's... less than impressed.
* ''Series/{{Community}}'' does this to ShipTease Annie and Jeff, the FanPreferredCouple. Jeff gives Annie his jacket, then immediately tells her not to eat or drink anything. And don't sweat. And no bending at the elbows. And no chairs with backrests and if she takes it off, wooden hangers only. And she's probably warm now, right, so he'll just have that back.
* ''Series/{{TeenWolf}}. At the start of season two, after [[spoiler: Lydia]] emerges from woods after wandering around naked, she asks if anyone is going to get her a coat or something, dropping her arms to her sides. [[spoiler: Stiles]] is too eager to oblige and flubs it, while [[spoiler: his dad]] does so.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* Storm Silverhand and her father Dornal (''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'') [[http://www.candlekeep.com/library/articles/sse/sse_020304-04.htm sometimes do such things]] (both are mostly immortal, but still suffer from cold):
--> He once gave all of his clothing to shivering beggars on the road near Neverwinter and walked naked into a blizzard, hoping to die [...] was awed when he once witnessed Storm disrobed completely to give all of her clothing to freezing folk who'd been driven out of their (wooden) home by fire, and then lead them for miles to shelter (striding naked through the snow to her farmhouse). A sort of: "That's my girl!" admiration.

[[folder:Videogames]]
* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', Unlimited Blade Works route. Rin wakes up after dozing off to find that her Servant Archer put his coat around her to keep her warm. [[spoiler:His FaceHeelTurn is in the next scene.]]
** Of course, [[spoiler: he remains loyal to Rin. It's ''Shiro'' he wants to kill, and needs to be free of her orders to do it.]]
* ''VideoGame/Halo3ODST'', Officer Branley gives Sadie his Police-issue jacket. Sadie objects that she isn't cold, but Officer Branley points out that the jacket is bullet-resistant.
* Jenon tries to offer his coat to Siskier in ''VideoGame/BlazeUnion'' when the party is searching a wintry mountain, since she's wearing what amounts to [[{{Stripperiffic}} a glorified bikini and garters]]. She tells him no thank you so that she'll have the excuse to cuddle up with Byff the immensely fluffy tiger instead.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* In [[http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?db=comics&id=343 this]] ''Webcomic/SaturdayMorningBreakfastCereal'', the man doesn't offer his coat to the cold woman, but instead [[BlackComedy burns a hobo.]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' episode "Eye of the Beholder," Fox comes out of her monstrous {{Werewolf}}-like form and collapses to the ground, apparently naked from what we can see. (Earlier we saw her [[ClothingDamage clothes rip]] when she first transformed.) [[UnholyMatrimony Her fiancé Xanatos]] is there, but he doesn't really have anything to cover her with; Elisa, who is wearing a ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast''-[[ShoutOut style]] gown for Halloween, takes off the skirt (she's wearing something underneath) and gives it to him to wrap her in.
