Step back into the classic vintage styling of 1940s outerwear with a new 1940s style coat or jacket. The ’40s look was a men’s inspired boxy silhouette with oversized collars, big buttons, and wide sleeves. Long knee-length 40s overcoats, trench coats, and the shorter box coat are iconic styles of 1940s coats. Hip length utility coats and plaid shirt coats were worn for working at farms and ranches. In the city, short leather jackets and blazers reigned. Raincoats were fashionable in Spring. You can achieve vintage inspired 1940s style with a new winter coat like one of these we found online.
