After gaining a significant amount of weight from not being able to exercise after a knee injury, I decided to buy a new camel hair topcoat. The last time I purchased one was in the 2012 timeframe. To my surprise I am finding a total lack of them on the market...have they suddenly gone out of style or something?? I have also been looking for a new (larger) trench coat...also having a hard time.
Is there a problem sourcing camel hair or something?
Thoughts?

p.s. The trench/raincoats I am seeing are way too short.

Mostly hiding under the alias “polo coat.”

You can probably get one from O’Connell’s or Ralph Lauren.

Long trench coat?

Burberry.

The RL one is COMPLETELY SOLD OUT. RL did not re-stock it this year, apparently.

J Press has a very nice one, and at a good price.

Alas, I am afraid these are a relic of the past. Troubling, to be sure.

O'Connell's has several, single and double breasted. Also I believe Ben Silver has one as well. They're out there. You just need to know where to look.
