Stylish, classic and practical
The men from the earlier era had style and class, no doubt. Moreover, regardless of what the designers of today may say, our current fashion is greatly inspired by them. Remember Rick Blain in Casablanca, who made mens trench coat an iconic fashion statement? Even today, a trench coat is one of the best fashion elements that you can add to your wardrobe, and regardless of what your style statement may be, add a hint of suave and class to it.
Choosing the right fabric and style
There are many fabrics used for making mens trench coats, such as Glabardine, which is a tightly-woven fabric from wool, polyesters and even blends; leather, from the hides of various animals, known for its softness and durability; cotton drill, which is similar to gabardine, strong & durable and lastly serge, a fabric common in military coats and uniforms.
The most traditional color in mens trench coats is khaki. If you have a large wardrobe to match the coat with, then black can be a great choice as well, while blue is suited for those with a thin build. For leather trench coats, brown can be another great option. Those who are shorter in height may prefer a single breasted trench coat, since a double breasted would envelop a smaller ban. If you wish to accentuate your physical features, then a belted trench coat is what you are looking for.
No matter what the occasion or style may be, a classy trench coat is the best way to add your style and class into it, looking great as you do so.
