Jesse Metcalfe’s career may have dwindled since the days of get down-and-dirty with bored housewives on the daily, but the actor recently proved he’s still able to get lucky in the wardrobe department.

During a weekend shopping trip with his model fiancée Cara Santana, the Desperate Housewives star nailed the statement overcoat, and he did so without relying on quick-to-date prints or garish hues.

By opting for an oversized cut and military green colourway, Metcalfe delivers on volume without shouting from the rooftops, perfectly anchoring his outerwear with a neutral colour palette and well-fitting wardrobe staples.

Sure, it might be second place to his old gig but it’s still one that’s, ahem, bang on.
