Alan Ladd wears a well-tailored polo coat in "The Glass Key," but I could only find a few not-great pics:

Interesting polo coat in a tartan, sort of like ones Ralphie used to do. All the details are there. Look beyond the "pieces of flair"!

Whom would I be to question PRL, but does anyone else see a touch of incongruence between the Deck Shoes and the rest of the rig? How about a nice pair of long wings? ;)

I hear ya, but I like the incongruity of it. The entire outfit says to me, "I don't have access to my full wardrobe (I'm on vacation somewhere spectacular, living my spectacular life), so I just threw on some things that only kinda sorta go together, but work well 'cause I'm just that spectacular (kind of like Tom Brady's real life).

Kidding aside, the polo sweater, dress trousers, polo coat, no sport coat and boat shoes work in a thoughtful helter-skelter manner. But as implied earlier, maybe you have to be 6'6", 200 lean pounds, square jawed and have a net worth that's more than the GDP of most small countries to pull it off.
