Sorry to Hijack this topic, but I found a short suede trench from BB Prorsum which I'm thinking to buy since they have only my size left I have to make up my mind fast. I really like the suede of this trench. 

 

Votes please ;)

It seems a bit impractical since the suede will get ruined by the rain. If you are buying it as outer wear then it'd be a little more practical. It's a great looking coat in my opinion.

I already have some Herno jackets for the rain. I will buy it just for the looks.

The Burberry Prorsum Suede Trench Coat looks very nice!

Yeah, the whole point of a "trench" coat is that it covers a lot of your pants when it's raining. If you've ever tried to walk in NYC in a rainstorm, even holding an umbrella, the rain will soak your pants on around your knees. That's because when you walk your knees project up and forward. Thus, a full length trench coat will protect your fine wool trousers from the rain...

Now, biomechanics aside, I do agree that a full length trench looks old-mannish, and I also agree that a cropped trench looks oddly truncated. The solution is a classic Mackintosh, which gives you about 90% of the protection of a trench with a sleeker style, esp. if it's slim fit. I've been looking for an affordable version for a while but have struck out.

Anyway, to the OP, I'd loop the belt through the back. Fit looks fine to me -- so wear it in good health if you like it.

Hey everyone, I found one of my fathers old overcoats, its light grey wool.  It obviously needs some tailoring and cleaning, but what else does this need?  I am definitely also going to replace the buttons, I'm thinking about buttons on either black horn buttons or very dark tortoise shell buttons.  What else can I do to this to make it look better/more modern?

I really like the look. Let me guess, is this from Mr. Porter? I would argue that the suede is more for the runway, as it would probably be impractical in person, both due to getting destroyed by rain/snow and also looking odd in real life.
