Polo coat

A polo coat also known as a camel coat is a piece of men's outerwear originally worn by polo players in England. It is available from Polo Ralph Lauren but was not invented by Mr Lauren.[1] The polo coat was originally a wrap coat with a belt, but eventually adopted a double-breasted with buttons configuration.[2] Camelhair was the fabric at first, but later camelhair and wool blends became standard due to its higher durability.[2] The terms polo coat and camel coat are thus synonymous.
