10 Trenches for men

Selected the 23 September 2011 by Romano as "the garagerocker"

The trenchcoat is the ideal mid-season coat: when the weather is still warm, but when you are highly exposed to the rain. It is a basic, a timeless piece which you can easily mix in different outfits. To help you choose your trench coat, whatever your budget, here is a selection of 10 trenchcoats for men:

Trenchcoats are classified by ascending order, the first part of this selection only has “low-priced” pieces. Regarding ASOS and Topman ones, do not kid yourself about the quality, even if their cut are usually nice. Let’s move upmarket with a very safe bet from Uniqlo with a high price/quality ratio. And then we are finishing with a cool check lined Lyle & Scott and a Diesel without any showy feature.

(1) ASOS : £75 from ASOS
(2) Topman : £75 from Topman
(3) Uniqlo : £179.90 from Uniqlo
(4) Lyle & Scott : £179.95 from Zalando
(5) Diesel : £220 from House of Fraser

Now we are moving to some more serious trenches for those who would like to make a long term investment. One from Reiss, then a very original with a double ring belt coming from Vivivenne Westwood (reminds me of a pirate coat). Here is the time to talk about real basics, the most classic pieces that you will certainly keep for life. Those trenchcoats have the sturdiest construction and the finest details: the camel one from Paul Smith with contrasting buttons looks great I’ll give you that, but with such a budget you cannot pass trough Acquascutum and Burberry, both claiming the invention of the trenchcoat.

(1) Reiss : £275 from Reiss
(2) Vivienne Westwood : £395 from Yoox
(3) PS by Paul Smith : £499 from Harrods
(4) Burberry : £550 from My-Wardrobe
(5) Acquascutum : £700 from John Lewis
