What is a balmacaan coat?
A balmacaan coat is a single breasted, loose fitting, flared, knee length full coat with raglan sleeves and Prussian collar.
Originally the men's balmacaan overcoats were made of rough woollen cloth / tweed but can be made of other fabrics, many raincoats are also made in this style.
Some use the nickname for the coat, and prefer to call it a bal coat.
