  1. Trench coat

    A trench coat or trenchcoat is a coat made of waterproof heavy-duty cotton gabardine drill or poplin, or leather. It generally has a removable insulated lining, raglan sleeves, and the classic versions come in various lengths ranging from mid-calf to above the knee. It was originally a military item of clothing and shows this influence in its styling. Traditionally this garment is double-breasted with 10 front buttons, has wide lapels, a storm flap and pockets that button-close. The coat is common belted at the waist with a self-belt, as well as having straps around the wrists that also buckle up. The coat also often has shoulder straps that button-close; those were a functional feature in a military context. The classic color of a trench coat is khaki. However both Burberry or Aquascutum have designs that had no waist belt or 10 front buttons.
