Overcoats are clothes worn for warmth or fashion. Outerwear usually has long sleeves and is opened from the front down, closed by buttons, zippers, shackles, elbows, belts or some combination of them. Other possible features include a collar, shoulder strap and hood.

Coat is one of the earliest English words of clothing category, which can be traced back to the early Middle Ages. (see also clothing terminology.) The Oxford English Dictionary traces the modern meaning of coat to C. 1300, when it was written in the shed. The word coat comes from ancient French, and then from Latin ancient Scots. It originated from wool clothes in the primitive Indo European language.

The early English usage of outerwear was chain mail, a tunic similar to a metal coat, usually the length of the knee or middle leg.

Medieval and Renaissance outerwear (usually spelled Cote by costume historians) is a medium-sized, sleeve style men's coat, suitable for the waist and buttoned at the front, the basic element of which is the whole skirt, different from the modern coat.

By the 18th century, overcoats had begun to replace cloaks and cloaks as outerwear. By the middle of the 20th century, the word jacket and overcoat had been confused. There are still differences in the use of old clothes.

In the early 19th century, overcoats were divided into undercoats and topcoats. The term "overcoat" is now obsolete, but it means that the term "overcoat" can be either the outermost layer (overcoat) worn outdoors or the overcoat (overcoat) worn under it. However, the term "coat" has begun to refer only to the topcoat, not the undercoat. The older use of the word coat can still be found in the expression "wear coat and tie", which does not mean that the wearer wears coat. A tuxedo, dressing gown, or overcoat does not indicate the type of coat. Indeed, overcoats may be worn on top of tailcoats. In the field of tailoring, the tailors who make all kinds of coats are called coat manufacturers. Similarly, in American English, the term sport coat is used to refer to a coat (coat) not worn as a coat (sport coat in British English).

The term "jacket" is a traditional term used to refer to a specific type of short undercoat. Typical modern jackets extend only to the upper thighs, while older coats, such as tuxedos, are usually knee length. Modern jackets in suits are traditionally known as British English casual coats (or casual jackets) and American English hemp coats. American English terms are rarely used. Traditionally, most men wear coats and ties, although this has declined since the 1960s. Because the basic patterns of baby stroller (black coat for striped trousers in British English) and evening dress (TUXEDO in American English) are the same as those of casual coat, tailors traditionally call these two special types of coats as outerwear.

Overcoats should be designed as the outermost garment to be worn in outdoor sports; although this usage is still maintained in some places, especially in the UK, in other places, the term "coating" is often used primarily to refer to only the outer coating, not to the inner coating. If there is any difference, the finish is a slightly shorter [need to quote] topcoat. Cut through a coat longer than the top of a knee coat (under coat) (for example, a work coat, a formal coat, and a dressing coat) so that it is fully covered and large enough to accommodate the lower coat.

Coats vary in length: the middle calf is the most common, while the current fashion has nothing to do with the hem, the default is the calf. Designs range from knee length to ankle length and were briefly popular in the early 1970s, known as "Maxi" (in contrast to the modified mini).

English speakers sometimes use the word jacket and coat informally.
