    Looking to purchase this season's Burberry trench. Was just wondering if anyone had any comments on fit of this piece?

    Noticed that there are four lines, the Heritage, Prorsum, Brit, and London. Cant really decide which style I would would...probably would not choose prorsum. Looking for the mid-length version as well.

    Heritage:

    Brit

    Any comments on fit would be greatly appreciated!

    The Heritage, the fit, the material look better than the Brit.

    By the way, this is the first time I heard about Burberry Heritage line, anyone have information about it?

    Heritage. It's almost identical to the one I have, except, mine is from the London line.

    What's with the huge buttons and D-rings...don't like that.

    Heritage is not a line of Burberry, it is just a section on the website. All the Heritage trench coats are from the London line. They created a heritage section on the website just to denote those trench coats that are part of the "original" burberry line of trench coats and not the seasonal variations. All the full cotton trench coats on the heritage section are still made in England using the same garbadine cotton as the original. The blends are not (China, Turkey, etc). And the rest from the various lines (e.g. prosurum) made in Italy.

    My advice is invest in a original made in England piece. Forget the seasonal and cheaper variations, unless you already have an original.

    Pretty sure the ones I linked to have been around for at least two seasons, or are you talking about something else? I don't really follow this line.
