Trench Coats

HAPPY MONDAY dear Spiral Style readers.  Hope you are rested and relaxed and ready for a new week.  We had lots of rain in the past few days and I was thinking about trench coats.  A "trench" is a real workhorse in your coat wardrobe and a great investment.  
TRENCH COATS  (can you pick out the Burberry's?)
When I think Trench Coat, I think double breasted, lapels, belted, epaulets, tabs, and flaps.  I also think Burberry.  It was Thomas Burberry who developed a water-proof fabric, used for a military coat during the Boer War.  After the war, civilians started wearing the coat, know as a trench coat...and the rest is history.    

Trench with Contrast Belt

I have two trench coats that I'm tired of and I may try a contrast belt for a new look.

Three-Quarter Length Trench at Nordstrom
I'm not a very big person and I look overwhelmed in a double-breasted coat with lots of other things going on.  This coat may be perfect for me.

What is your trench style?

  1. Hi Dude,

    Nice collection of trench coats! These are raincoat made of waterproof heavy duty cotton drill or poplin, wool gabardine or leather. It generally has a removable insulated lining and usually knee length. Thanks a lot...
