What do people think of this trench coat style? Any fave trenches they recommend?
Those are trench coats?
No but you knew that
It's rather like the confusion about what exactly is a 'blazer'. I blame menswear retailers for this, who really should know better.
Some nice links in there

damn ive been trying to find a coat like that.
where did you get those from?
My favorite type of trench is the Duster. I've got a stylish Countryroad Australian duster that I take out in the winter months.
I absolutely loathe trench coats that hide buttons and that aren't trench coats.
meaning you love trenchcoats, I see.
I am sort of missing your point here.
The so called "looks" above are not bad but I wouldn't go for it. Do you really mean what do people think (I can't answer that) or did you mean what do you think (and I just told you that )
these are nice coats but i'll also not choose these coats to wear it. the black color is quite attractive but i personally don't prefer long coats. well still good Job.
Details on this coat? I am liking it in black.
It's not a real trench coat unless it's double-breasted, hangs below the knee, and is made by Burberry or Aquascutum. The rest are wannabes.
I like those. Single breasted, shorter length. Good for light rain. I have one in tan and navy. But, as mentioned, they are not trench coats. I'd just call it a rain coat. Or a Mac. (purists will probably say it needs to be made by Macintosh in order to call it a "mac").
You could change the thread title to "Rain Coat Style". That would include trenches too.
what you have there is a short raincoat.
a trench must have, at least double breast with a convertible collar.
a belt and at least knee length. other small details are optional.
Separate names with a comma.
