    Cad Bane also has one, as do does the TOR "iconic" Smuggler, some Bounty Hunter pics in the Sourcebooks also have Hunters with similar coats. Though cloaks (which are just as awesome) seem more popular ;)

    Nobody beats out Iaco's Stark glaring gaudy goofy gold trench coat. Nobody. That thing gave me a migraine just looking at it.

    It's not exactly a trenchcoat, but Admiral Screed had a uniquely awesome long coat.

    The Bravery of Being Out of Range featured Imperial troops wearing trenchcoats over stormtrooper armor. It was glorious.

    Never spotted that they do actually have armor underneath, epic :D

    I'm honestly kinda glad trenchcoats aren't overly common in Star Wars.

    It would be far too easy for every jackass Sith upstart to just be a cliche bad boy clone in a dark leather trenchcoat, but thankfully that cliche (which is oh so common to video game villains) has never taken off.

    (Although I will be far from shocked if Disney decide there's more mainstream merchandise in having Sith start wearing something that would appeal to customers as more than just a novelty robe costume.)

    I reckon Palpatine was probably wearing a trench coat during his child snatching years.

    what about that smuggler from the old republic? I'd Imagine jax pavan's look is very common to minor criminal's in coruscant. oops, already mentioned, he doesn't have a name though?
