One of the items that can’t miss in the Gentleman’s wardrobe is the trench coat.
The trench coat was created by Thomas Burberry for the British army and it was made of gabardine, a very strong fabric suitable to protect from rain and from Autumn winds.
This coat was created according to the needs of the British army during the Boer war: in fact we can see details like the shoulder pads, the protection tab on the neck and the belt that recall the military origins .
Beige is the the trench coat typical color but nowadays it’s easy to find it in different colors and fits.
A good alternative to Burberry is Aquascutum trench coat that is less known, but it’s top quality in any case.
