    It's rather like the confusion about what exactly is a 'blazer'. I blame menswear retailers for this, who really should know better.

    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.

    I am sort of missing your point here. :evolve:




    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.

    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.
