|Easton's Bible Dictionary|
The tunic worn like the shirt next the skin (Leviticus 16:4; Cant. 5:3; 2 Samuel 15:32; Exodus 28:4; 29:5). The "coats of skins" prepared by God for Adam and Eve were probably nothing more than aprons (Genesis 3:21). This tunic was sometimes woven entire without a seam (John 19:23); it was also sometimes of "many colours" (Genesis 37:3; R.V. marg., "a long garment with sleeves"). The "fisher's coat" of John 21:7 was obviously an outer garment or cloak, as was also the "coat" made by Hannah for Samuel (1 Samuel 2:19). (see DRESS.)
Coat of mail
The rendering of a Hebrew word meaning "glittering" (1 Samuel 17:5, 38). The same word in the plural form is translated "habergeons" in 2 Chronicles 26:14 and Nehemiah 4:16. The "harness" (1 Kings 22:34), "breastplate" (Isaiah 59:17), and "brigandine" (Jeremiah 46:4), were probably also corselets or coats of mail. (see ARMOUR.)

COAT OF MAIL
See ARMOR, ARMS; BRIGANDINE.
kot: This expression is found in John 21:7 where the Revised Version (British and American) and the American Standard Revised Version have "coat." John here, after representing Peter as "naked" (gumnos), pictures him as girding on his "coat" (ependutes), literally, "upper garment," and not at all specifically a "fisher's coat."
See CLOAK; DRESS, etc.
