The seasons are changing and so is our wardrobe. Here is a investment piece that can be worn for years, and year round, no matter what the season.
THE BURBERRY TRENCH COAT
The Burberry Trench Coat is the most universally, well known trench coats. Not only because of the name, but because of the quality, construction, and tailoring. Burberry has a reputaion to uphold when it comes to thier trench coats which is why their story speaks for itself.
The trench coat was developed as an alternative to the heavy serge greatcoats worn by British and French soldiers in the First World War. Thomas Burberry is claimed to have invented the trench coat when submitting a design of an army officer's raincoat to the United Kingdom War Office in 1901. Burberry invented gabardine, a hardwearing, water-resistant yet breathable fabric, in which the yarn is waterproofed before weaving. This was a perfect fabric for soldiers due to the harsh conditions they were fighting in. The trench has been a designer desire ever since.
The Burberry trench is possibly the most beautiful, durable, breathable, wearable item ever made. If you can't find it in our budget to spring for Burberry you can find other great, more affordable trench coats at Banana Republic. I got my trench last year after the holiday sales at BR for $140 and it looks like it costs an easy $500. So if you have yet to get our hands on a great trench-- go buy one now. whether you are shopping at Banana or Nordstrom, for War or for Play, the trench coat is an item that you need!
