How often do you wash your coat?

For context, I was riding the train the other night when a man and woman got into some kind of spat near me. She was nice looking, well put together mid-thirties, and as she was walking off he said something along the lines of "...and wash your coat" and she looked back at him completely shook by the comment.

I immediately smelled my coat. It didn't stink but got me thinking that I'm on my 2nd winter season with it and have never even thought about washing it even though I wear it nearly everyday in the winter. I looked around at all the people in coats and wondered if I'm just some sort of savage not washing mine or is everyone else not washing theirs either. Are there coat washing best practices, like every week, once a month, after each season, as needed?

I told my wife about it later and while she apparently dry cleans her coats regularly she'd likely use "wash your coat, bitch" as an effective insult around her office.

So, how often do you, or whoever does your laundry, wash your coat?

Actually, never mind, I probably really don't want to know the answer to that.
I'm sure there are individuals out there that wear their coats way more often than I do - but my routine looks kinda like this.

Wear heavy coat over hoodie to work in the morning.
Take coat off when I reach the office.
Wear coat home after work and hang it up.

I spend maybe a total of 15 minutes a day wearing it. It doesn't need washed very often.

(Side note: I'll wash my hoodies once a week. I'll wear one for 1-2 days, then it goes in the laundry.) But I typically don't take my hoodie off during the day in the winter.

So, what's wrong with this.

I told my wife about it later and while she apparently dry cleans her coats regularly she'd likely use "wash your coat, bitch" as an effective insult around her office.

I just can't believe you don't wash your coat!

20-30 degree temp swings during business hours, utilizing public transportation and walking ~5 miles a day. Sometimes what I commit to in the am is as suitable in the pm, just like everyone else navigating this city.

I guess it depends on what we mean by 'coat.' Suit coat, barn coat, parka . . .

I don't really have to wear a suit coat, unless I go to training. And in Phoenix, unless it's raining one of the 8 days it rains every year, coats are just unnecessary.

But when I was in sales/marketing, back in STL, KC, CHI, Los Angeles, etc., I still don't remember actually washing a coat or having a suit coat cleaned that often. Maybe once every couple months at most? I didn't put the things on until I got to the office. Once in the office, I took it off and hung it. Probably only wore a suit coat about 10 minutes a day.

Depends on which coat. I usually wear my Carhartt, it gets washed once or twice a year.

You put shampoo on your fur once a day? The horror! Do you have any idea how bad that is for it?

Mine gets a regular licking from some good looking cat, hourly if not more frequent...
