Extensive Definition

The bluecoat is a traditional style of dress code, usually used in British private schools.
The main element of the bluecoat is a long (dark blue or black) coat, belted at the waist, with white neck decoration. Underneath a white shirt and grey shorts are worn, with knee-length socks and smart shoes.
Most Bluecoat schools have abandoned the uniform and replaced it with more modern styles. There are a few schools however that still retain the uniform, but use it for special occasions only. Only one school in the UK, Christ's Hospital, still uses bluecoat uniform as normal day wear.
