ドーバー コート
Explanation:
I think that this type of overcoat is named after the port town of Dover in the UK since it resembles the coats worn by mariners (usually long, woollen, double-breasted with rows of buttons down front, on cuffs and pockets etc).

The www link is to an online store that currently stocks this type of coat (with photo for reference).
