The Trench Coat

Throw it over everything and anything, especially in-between seasons, originally designed in the 1800s the Trench Coat is as relevant today as it was over 100 years ago. 

Look to the 1970s for large collars and cinched waists, the 1980s for strong shoulders or the 1990s for more relaxed silhouettes, or delve way back to the 1940s and 50s in search of masculine deadstock styles.

Fabrics: Cotton, (typically water-proof), or shiny nylon or suede for a modern approach.
