I know that the duster jackets worn by certain figure in the old west (like Wyatt Earp) were not worn just because they made you look nice - the big pockets made it easier to conceal a pistol since most towns outlawed visible carrying of guns in town limits (they were mostly concealed or the law was ignored in many cases) than to use a holster.

Most people didn’t expect a pocket draw but rather expected a holster draw.

But that wasn’t their obvious designed usage.
