Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a jacket and a coat? Many people use the terms interchangeably, but there really is a difference between the two garments, although even fashion experts get confused about the difference.
A coat has beginnings that date back to the Middle Ages. During that era, a “cote” was made of chain mail and was used to protect someone from weapon attacks. As time passed, a coat became a fashion item and were long items of clothing worn by both men and women. In most cases, a coat meant an overcoat which was meant to be worn over lighter jackets or sweaters.
The term jacket historically has meant an undercoat and was normally shorter than what was known as a coat. Jackets normally do not extend below the upper thigh, while coats may be below the knee. In today’s fashion world, however, some jackets are called coats, such as when they are used for sporting events.
