greetings,

i just inherited this brooks brothers lined trench coat:

sorry this is the only decent image i could find on the entire internets.

anyone know anything about the history of this BB coat? when was this item made/sold/popular? is this from the 70's?

also, i'm not even sure i could pull this look off. i'm in my early 30's and i dress more bohemian.

this is also my first trench. any ideas how to dress this down or make it more rock and roll?

thanks!

Paging Vox...

Other than a big pair of FU sunglasses I'm not sure what could make it more R&R.

please disregard previous spam, my post is completely legit.

does, anyone have any ideas about this trench?

like i said, this is my first trench. does the fabric wick moisture? can i wear it in light rain/snow?

thanks,

get it tailored to be as slim as possible (arms and body) and just rock it with confidence. Its very circa 70's pimp. Given its a trench its designed to keep you dry...so i wouldn't worry about that.

Once you have done as NYR suggests then

Slim dark jeans, heavy knitwear, and boots. Simple stuff. At least that's what I would wear with it.

I don't think it is a trench coat. It looks like a lined overcoat with a belt.
