The Trench Coat

The trench coat is a raincoat made of waterproof heavy-duty cotton fabric. It was originally double-breasted with 10 front buttons, wide lapels, a storm flap and pockets that button-close. The coat is usually belted at the waist, it also has straps around the wrists that buckle up and shoulder straps that button-close. Those were all functional features in a military scene, where this fashion piece originated from.

The classic color of a trench coat is khaki so I’ll start with the original Burberry Trench coat. It is said that the Burberry founder, Thomas Burberry, designed the original military trench coat.
