So, lets go over this a bit,

How does one wear a trench coat without being a total and utter asstard faggot.
Been thinking about trying it but the neckbeard is probably too strong.

Im not a fedora or mouth fedora fag, and i don't say m'lady and act nice all the time.
No im not planning on columbining it up either but did play more doom/quake/hexen/wolf3d than is probably healthy.

No i don't own any swords, gave one away when neighbour give it to me, will post pic if i find it. It kind of looked cool. But it was absolutely autistic in reality.
Sure I own some MTG cards but just a set of the commander 2016, I'm an edh timmy at best honestly.

Is there a certain cut off age where its not acceptable at all?
It's probably just a phase and won't last more than a month.

Actually I probably won't do it at all but was just curious to talk about it a bit.
Truth be told I don't want it to bring attention to me so that's why I wouldn't

Usually /b/ is pretty dead on about this sort of thing with out resorting to talking to irl people about it which gets weird fast
>>
Anything can look cool if worn with the right person. The problem is these neckbeards wearing trenchcoats are fuck ugly, but I'm sure there's people who look good in them, probably.

End of the day, if you wanna do something you do it, its your life, who cares if people think you look silly, who are you trying to impress?
>>
if you like it just fucking wear it however you feel you want to. Nobody cares if you look like a "fedora fag." Honestly it's more stupid when people care so much about looking like a "fag" than what they actually look like
>>
>>717199292
also I think it would look good anyway
>>
>>717199032
dress up when you wear it. they are not casual coats no jeans and tshirts underneath.
>>
>>717199032
Just dont get a leather trench coat, unless you want to look like a typical hobo murderer.
>>
>>717199032
It all depends on how you wear it. The guys in pic related pulled it off so well they made national headlines.

Trench coats that aren't black look less intimidating or like complete faggetry.

Never buy leather trench-coats (Cringy as fuck).
Trench-coats should never touch your knees.
Dont buy black ones. Anthrazit or blue, maybee beige are perfect.
If it costs under 300 Dollar, consider not to buy it.( Trust me, rather buy a decent jacket than a cheap ass trench. )
Look up for french brands (Drykorn, Sandro ... ) Burberry Trench-coats are god Tier. NEVER BUY OVERSIZED THEY MUST FIT ABSOLUTELY PERFECT

It's a part of the subculture. If people are in it they'll like it, if they're not then they won't.
>>
>>717202420
IF you wear a Trench-coat you can't wear hoodies or straight leg jeans. Also bright blue jeans look super funny with these. You also have to invest in top tier chinos or dark jeans that are slightly tighter around your calves (NOT TOO TIGHT OR ELSE YOU WILL LOOK LIKE A FAG.) . You probably won't want to wear your casual sneakers. Invest also in 100% black adidas sneakers or if you are a bit older in brown leather shoes ( no leatehr shoes bellow 100 Dollar Anon). Like i said no hoodies !! The brand SELECTED HOMME makes perfekt sweaters for trench-coats. And also... Prefer buying skandinavian or french brands.
Top Tier Brands i prefer: Scotch and Soda, Sandro, The Kooples, Burberry, Selected Homme, Drykorn.

Don't wear fedoras or fingerless gloves.
Don't carry a sword.
Don't wear all black underneath.
Don't have a neckbeard.
Don't be ugly/fat.

DO wear nice cloths (button up shirt, khakis, maybe even a tie)
DO have proper hygiene.
DO buy a nice trench coat (pic related) not some shitty leather crap

these here look really good with a trench-coat. If you are younger (i'm 18 ) you don't buy expensive leather shoes and go to school with them.

>>717199502

Jeans yes, with a semi casual shirt and it works better tucked.

Admittedly having breached my forties I no longer expect to be a style icon but I have a half dozen long coats in various (men's ) colours of wool and a couple of trenchcoats. I also have several hats in the fedora style, and a large victorian era full beard.

On me, with my size, shape and facial hair it doesn't look cringey, rather it looks very old fashioned. I do usually wear with a full suit, but wearing either a Crombie style coat or a trenchcoat with a sports jacket, polonium shirt and jeans looks fine. Similarly in warmer climes a shirt and jeans works. Polo shirt without a jacket falls under the no tshirts rule however.

I also found a victorian fish headed cane for two English pounds a couple of weeks ago which turned out to be a Victorian sword stick when I got it home. Which goes splendidly with my outfits, but is illegal to take outdoors..now I've discovered it's a sword cane anyway..

My best advice is look in a mirror, match or contrast colour, texture and material. You'll know if you look cringe or not. Erring on the side of victorian gentleman is better than edging toward the cringey side.
>>
ez
lose the sword hat and shitty sweater
>>
Are you an elderly british gentleman with graying hair? If not, you don't get to wear a trench coat without looking like a loser. Sorry, you can blame generations of losers for ruining that piece of clothing for you.

Brown leather shoes is a nice tip. I have a couple dozen pairs in varying shades and styles.

Tfw when I rarely wear my Nike Lebron's anymore unless it's summer and I'm wearing shorts.

>>
Tip: don't get a black one, only ones who made that work was columbine kids.
Beige could probably work. Just a white shirt underneath with a red tie. People don't look down too much on colorful ties but it still takes away from the fact that a trench coat is always gonna stick out a little. The trench coat won't be the weirdest part of the attire and the red tie sticks out more but people don't care about your tie so it makes the coat look normal.
Some stylish jeans or suit pants and actual shoes, not sneakers or sandals.

honestly? not as bad as i thought.

you'd do much better with a shorter or more casual coat, but you could probably replace the jeans with some chinos or something and grab a pair of oxfords later.
>>
>>717205769
Shoes and jeans work. Remove the scarf, makes you look like a tool. And put on something better than a t-shirt for God's sake. Trench is so long it almost drags on the floor. Keep the length above your knees.

Almost making it work, totally fixable.

If it's hot enough to wear sandals it's too hot for a trenchcoat!

Also I've found that the one instance trainers works is with blue camo trousers/pants with a navy blue trenchcoat or overcoat. The colour and texture works surprisingly well, it's also the sole instance a hoody works with the above.

Obviously the hoody and a fedora are not compatible. Also, with regard to a fedora, don't buy a cheap chainstore one. You can pick up cheap-ish vintage current fedoras online or buy a cheaper wool one from a tailor or milliner.

>>717199032
There is no hope for you if you wear a trech coat in public. Good thinking to avoid such social suicide.

>>717206028
I fuked up with the angle, because of my mirror. The coat is 4 cm above my knees. I'm wearing a blue sweatshirt
>>
>>717199032
Why do you even have the urge to wear it then? Closet fedora
>>
>>717206149

I agree, mine are all between mid shin and just below the knee.

Doesn't help that I have a barrel chest and broad shoulders on a sub six foot frame, so if they fit in the chest they're a little long.

It costs a metric shit ton to get investment grade clothing altered sadly..especially in light of the fact I buy all my designer wear and suiting and booting all at dirt cheap charity shop prices.

Although not a trench, my favourite full length coat is a camel coloured cashmere overcoat by Daks, via Simpsons of Piccadilly. A nice 3 grand investment for whoever bought it originally and it cost me a mere fiver.

Allows me to dress like a banker, mingle with them and then take the piss mightily.

At a wild stab on this, I'd say that the reason so many neckbeard cunts look definitively ridiculous in trenchcoats, is because they are wearing them with no utility apart from looking somewhat edgy.

Truth be that people who pull it off and look cool, are trying to keep themselves warm. So move somewhere where it is cold.

Also,congruence is important. The guy in your pic is wearing a leather trenchcoat, but his trousers look cheap as fuck, and the top he has on looks like he picked it from a steven segal bargain bin from the early 90s. also, he's got a dirty grey shirt underneith that shirt. The trenchcoat is a statement, and if you're looking to do this with the clothes you wear, your entire getup has to be on, otherwise you look ridiculous.
>>
>>717199032
You need to wear it when weather appropriate. It's a cold/wet weather coat, too many neckbeards wear them on sunny days for fashion and it simply looks wrong like the faggots that wear sunglasses at night. Also, it helps if you stand straight and fill out the shoulders: if you look like a kid wearing your dad's coat, no one will take you seriously.

I had a trench coat once, tan one. Problem was the fucker made it impossible to get in and out of the car. All in all a real pain in the ass. The only good part was it kept my suit cleaner when riding the metro.

utility is key. my dad would wear one when appropriate while wearing a nice suit for work, but he's also a confident-ass mofo. don't wear shit clothes underneath a trench coat

>>717208847
Also, don't forget, no one every looked cool, trying to look like a computer game character. It might be sexy for girls to do sometimes, and it might be fun to go to a convention to do this, but ultimately the world thinks these people are adult sized children.

swear to fucking god this story is real.

in 2002 i was working doing windows 98/ME support. the office was in tucson, arizona, through an outsourcing company called "convergys". it was the best job i ever had until it got sent to india.

at some point, i decided to try to find a nice pod at another part of the building. i found a nice one and sat with some people that were regulars there. there was a mexican lady, about 40, who had the corner. there was also some fuckhead who always wore a black trenchcoat. one time i was sitting across from the lady and it was like he had a crush on her. she was old enough to be his mother and not attractive at all--kinda chubby and boring looking--but obviously, she entertained this retard. he told her "one time i cut this guy's arm off with a sword..." she half smiled, because she knew he was a dipshit and he continued "but i felt sorry for him so i sewed it back on again". he was actually with his back to me so he didn't see me looking up at him with a face like he was a total fucking confusing retard. soon enough, she seemed to disappear. i actually noticed that she was no longer at her corner spot, so i ended up taking it. one time, he had gotten up to go on break, wearing his trenchcoat, and he gave me this retarded stare. it's the exact same face i've seen on a 1-year old boy when he realized he had shit his pants; total disappointment and anger. that night i went home and played "mafia", which i'd gotten a pirate copy of with a crack, and i couldn't stop thinking about that angry tard. for years, whenever i got to that rooftop mission where you have to escape the roof and kill guys on your way down the fire escape, i think of him.

my point is that it was 14 fucking years ago. it's like there is a mind control machine that inserts these desires in autistic retards.

I wear a knee length black trenchcoat made from waterproof fabric. I've found that in order to not look like a tool, you need to dress so you're not bulking it out too much but you're wearing enough for it to fit properly. E.g, It looks stupid with a hoodie under it or with just a t-shirt.

I've found mine works well with a suit, dinner jacket or like a medium weight jumper. It suits me because I'm quite tall, if I wear dark bootcut jeans it fits my figure and looks pretty good.

Leather is probably a bad idea but hey, the Nazis looked fucking badass when Hugo Boss was in charge of the Third Reich fashion department.
