Trench coats?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I live in Vancouver, BC so it's raining and cold all winter long. I'd like to get a trench coat or something similar. I like the burberry style coats with the belt around the waist. I don't want to get black or tan though. I'd like the coat to be grey or navy. Also, maybe a bit more casual than a burberry coat as I would be wearing it with jeans.

Any suggestions?

You could try Michael J Krell's (affiliate) in green? (I have the khaki and love it.) I wish he did it in grey, but the other colors are very nice as well.

I've got one from Michael as well (black) and while I haven't had the opportunity to wear it, I quite like it as well.

I've been wearing my black double breasted belted burberry trench lately to work. I got mine for $200 near Seattle a month ago at the Nordstrom Rack. They only had black though. I know you can get navy blue in London, but as you're in Vancouver I'm not sure if we have em here. It has been raining lately..

Barbour makes a great trench, I picked one up last week. It comes in navy or olive waxed cotton.

You could get a vintage Burberry and have it altered:

Yep, I've got my eye on the Barbour Collingwood and will probably pick one up before the end of the year:

How does it fit?

I have a large, i wear a 44 suit jacket, it fits pretty snug. I think the sizing is pretty slim.

Not a trench but nice ad more modern imo. Wax treated cotton so it repels rain.

Shortened a bit, maybe too much, and taken in at the sides. It's a good beater, I only wear it when it actually rains, like today.

That looks really good Lucky Strike. Trench coats that are too long look costumey, imo.

That Burberry was obviously shortened. IMO, a dumb idea because not only does it look out of proportion but the whole point of a trench coat is to cover you to keep you from getting wet. That's why a trench should hit your knees or maybe 1-2" inches below.

The Barbour pictured doesn't look to be the right length either.
