So what do you think a housecoat is? Is it the same thing as a bathrobe? A robe? Kimono?

Please, weigh in with your comments.

And don't look it up. Just tell me how you have used the word housecoat.

thank you

I don't use the word myself, but I have heard folks referring to my coat as a Housecoat.

How does a grad student find the time to contemplate these things? ;-)

I've always been under the impression that a housecoat is a bath robe or at least a similar item. One that you'd wear only around the house (maybe after a bath) and not likely around if there are very many people present (especially those you don't know extremely well).

I assumed a housecoat was a heavy sweater one may use...doesn't see daylight very often, but can keep you warm when you're trying to save money because you have no money and bills are just too expensive. Though, i admit, i've never heard the term before.

Thanks everybody.

Daniel, I agree that a housecoat should not be worn when there are strangers around...unless you are having a housecoat theme party.

Stacey...good call. I didn't think about it like that. In that case, I have a house coat!

House, I don't have a housecoat in your sense of the term.
