First Look Spring: Trench Coats

The Trench Coat: “There is its neutral role as a smart, double-breasted, weather-resistant staple for businessmen; its powerful silver-screen status as the uniform of sly film noir gangsters and wisecracking detectives; and then, of course, its pervy side. Add a pair of stilettos and the belted, buttoned up trench becomes erotically charged, suggesting ? just like the kilt – an underlying state of undress. While, in more negative terms, the poor old trench will never be able to shake off its reputation as the go-to uniform for flashers.” BBC Culture

A Trench Coat is not necessarily water resistant anymore. The term describes a classic, waist and sleeve belted, double breasted topper with at least side pockets, back vent and an overlap on shoulders. Of course fashion takes over after that. Herein some different, new models under $800.00
