Maybe the Loro Piana storm system farbics? Though I've never seen those in a book, only made up as RTW coats.
Given that they usually have raglan sleeves, I'm not sure a trench coat is the sort of thing that really lends itself to bespoke. Certainly not at a price similar to that of a canvassed coat with set in shoulders.
