Spring is not complete without a handy trench in hand. Originally designed for the British soldiers in WWI, the trench coat might have changed job descriptions but its never changed its function or aesthetic.
The trenchcoat is by far one of the most universally recognizable fashion garment on the last century and the fact that it has gone almost unchanged for that time truly speaks to its celebrity. Speaking of celebrity, the trench coat has been worn by superheroes, hollywoods elite and even animated superstars like Bugs Bunny (who typically never wears any clothes). Suffice it to say, this timeless classic is great addition to any mans wardrobe.
Traditionally the trench is a double-breasted jacket with 10 front buttons, wide lapels, a storm flap, shoulder straps and pockets that button-close. Having said that, in the last several decades many designers have put their own spin on this silhouette, offering up some great variations. These latest arrivals for Spring showcase some of these variations.
