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