    Hate to tell you this,but -That's the original coat he inherited from the original duke.I think it's looking pretty darn good for an 80 year old coat,don't you??;)

    Now we are talking role models. "Saint Walter" basically developed American football. In fact, he was so Trad in his thinking that he resisted the forward pass. If the coat is good enough for Walter Camp, it is good enough for every man.

    Doctor, thanks for a really interesting photo essay. Can you or someone else present the defining characteristics of the Polo Coat, and how it differs from other styles of overcoats.

    If by 'original duke' you are referring to the most recent 1st Duke of Northumberland (3rd Creation), then it would be at least 220 years old.

    Belted polo coats on the NY Giants baseball team in October 1924. Can anyone guess the location where the photo was taken?

    Polo players weren't the only ones to throw on a polo coat to keep warm. Here's some nice old photos of various tennis players wrapped up. The first two are April 1933 and show British tennis players getting ready to travel to the US for a tournament.

    This image is from June 1913. The fellow on the right has the most luxurious polo coat I've ever seen photographed.
