Fall is coming and you need a coat. Not just any coat, but something with style, sophistication, and class. You need Jorge Garcia’s top coat.
Ok, it doesn’t have to be his exact coat – but look at it – that’s just high end. The photo, a promotional picture from the recently deceased FOX television show Alcatraz, shows Garcia’s character, Dr. Diego Soto, sporting the sort of look he wore pretty regularly. It’s a good look. So good, in fact, that we think you should consider something similar. We scoured the web for high end outerwear in extended sizes – both similar to and different from the coat you see in the photo. You’ll find our picks below.
Finding a coat is pretty simple, but what about the rest of the look? We recommend you pair it like Garcia/Soto does with a cardigan, or better yet – buy the coat big and get it tailored so you can pair it with a light sweater. Just roll up the coat sleeves and leave the sweater sleeves out for a nice ivy league professorial feel. Experiment with the look. The coat gives you quite a few options.

If you’d prefer a darker coat, take a look at the BOSS Black ‘The Task’ Coat ($595, Nordstrom). Not a fan of the topcoat? In that case, the Ted Baker London Wool Blazer above may be perfect for you. It lets you achieve the same type of look with a shorter coat. If none of these looks tickle your fancy, Nordstrom offers a wide variety of outerwear in extended sizes.
You can catch Jorge Garcia opposite Bryan Cranston and Marcia Gay Harden in the film Get a Job, in theaters 2013.
