The best trench coats for men


Beloved by dapper gents, from Humphrey Bogart and Sir Edmund Hilary to David Bowie and the Pink Panther, the trench coat has long been a marker of the well-dressed man. First created by Burberry and Aquascutum as a utility garment for use by the British military during the First World War (hence the name), its functional design and flattering silhouette quickly made it a symbol of style and status that has translated into the wider sartorial consciousness.

Originally fitted with epaulettes and D-rings from which to suspend equipment such as grenades and whistles, as well as gun flaps and a belted waist for added elemental protection, trench coats have retained much of their design heritage (despite the fact they’re more likely to be worn in the Square Mile than the Somme these days), but this only adds to their appeal.

In fact, it’s the trench coat’s unique place in British fashion history that makes it such a timeless wardrobe staple. Whether worn with jeans and a jumper or thrown on over your sharpest suit, trench coats have the rare ability to imbue almost any outfit with an instant sense of sophistication and intrigue. This goes a long way to explain why we still scramble to buy them over a century after they first appeared. And, with designers re-working the style each season in new fabrics and silhouettes, it’s clear that this icon of British style isn’t going anywhere. These are the best men’s trench coats to buy now…
