Did a search and couldn't find anything on point other than this old thread.
I have two size 42 US Burberry trench coats - different styles; I guess I lost some chub because I should've gotten a 40 US. I just need the waist tucked in a bit.
I read that Burberry has an in-house tailor that will alter trenches to taste. Any insight for NYC stores? Prices? etc..
Get the single breasted, looks better and fits better.These coats are not meant to be worn with suppressed waists. Always buy one with the wool liner because you'll need it when it cooler. Find a single breasted with a tie belt if you like that. No one uses the buckle and just ties it anyway. And Grenfell is a better (and cheaper coat) Burberry went downhill in the mid 90's under a new designer and is no longer a real British classic coat. They still make a few real coats like the trench with a liner and wool collar that everyone wore like a uniform in the 80's it was so common. The correct length is to the top of the knee. Calf length looks out of proportion and these new short trenches look stupid esp. on those skinny boys modeling them for Burberry.
