A Guards Coat or Guard's Coat (sometimes Guard's coat) is a men's topcoat which has a half belt in the back,[1] and is based on the coat that used to be worn by English Officers of the Guard.[2] It can be buttoned with three buttons or just two.[1] A Guards Coat is similar to a Paletot.[1] The Guards Coat has peaked lapels and welt pockets [3] and comes mostly in formal colours such as a deep navy or midnight blue, and is more formal than the Ulster coat.[2]
