From Knitting with Balls:



Aside from dressy outerwear, sweaters and coats rarely travel below the waistline on today’s man. But since the dawn of knitted garments, women have benefited from countless knit coat patterns. Here’s to equality: using Noro’s Iro, a chunky silk/wool blend in a self-striping yarn, the Knee-Length Coat features color and texture while preserving uniquely masculine details such as a shaped lapel, fitted, sleeves, and a foldover collar.
