Badass Longcoat and Walking Shirtless Scene, two tropes that both represent the paragon of manliness and hotness. It might seem like the two are fundamentally incapable of being combined, but they can, as these brave men (and braver women) will show us below.

Examples of No Shirt, Long Jacket include:

Anime and Manga

Comic Books

  • Spider Jerusalem in Transmetropolitan.
  • Hellboy wears a trench coat and shorts, no shirt.
  • In the Sin City story The Big Fat Kill, the main character Dwight starts the story in the buff since he's over at his girlfriend's house where they are post-coital. Her ex-boyfriend comes over to start trouble and he has enough time to pull on a pair of pants and throw on his long coat but does not wear a shirt under it Since the entire story takes place over the course of a single night, he has this look throughout the miniseries.
    • The film version averts this since he starts the story wearing a pair of pants so he has less clothes to put on when Shelly's ex-boyfriend pops in. He ends up wearing a shirt under his long coat.


  • Hellboy again, moreso in The Golden Army than in the first film.
  • Viktor in Underworld after regaining his strength but before setting out for the raid.


  • At one point in Clive Barker's 1988 novella Cabal[1], Boone takes off his dirty white shirt to feel his beloved leather jacket on his skin.

Live Action TV


  • Lady Gaga in the video for "Alejandro", along with shades at night, white hair, a leather jacket and of course, panties, while singing in front of a cross, yeah, she hit everything for that one.
  • Joe Perry, the lead guitarist for Aerosmith, frequently pulled this off on stage in the past. Now, not so much, but you can still occasionally catch him sporting this look.
  • Seal in the video for "Crazy".

Professional Wrestling

Video Games

Western Animation
