    Why are you wearing coat here?

    Why are you wearing coat? It's pretty warm here.
    My question is: every singular countable noun needs an article and coat is not an uncountable noun but why the sentence 'Why are you wearing coat here?' is used a lot and sounds natural to me?

    It's wrong. That's not a proper English sentence.
