Does by any chance someone know what brand his trench coat is in this picture? Or does anyone know a similar model?

Hard to say for sure without a full length shot but looks like a balmacaan coat. Note the raglan sleeves and the plain front.
here’s one:

Bal coats are generally made from some kind of woolen. That looks like a black mac raincoat. You can generally find them from any company that sells raincoats -- Burberry, Mackintosh, Aquascutum, etc.

Was thinking Mac at first but don’t those usually have set-in sleeves? At least the ones made by Mackintosh do. Anyhow the bal coat I linked is not wool.

I think Anglo Italian mislabeled that coat. Not unusual for people to have different names for the same design, as these things aren't set in stone. But if I saw that on the street, I would not call it a bal.

I don't think sleeve design is critical to a mac. I think a mac is basically a smooth, single-breasted raincoat. Bals are typically made from a rough woolen cloth and worn for hunting.

maybe this is all semantics because I think Bernie's coat is kind of neither.
In any case, to be helpful to the OP, here's another coat:

I again think we're often too agnostic on this side of the board. The OP should just not buy a raincoat that looks like that, as it looks bad.
