    I am so searching for this coat, shorter than the regular trench and its singel breasted!
    I just got to have this jacket, onfortunity I wear 38, so this is to large!

    Do this coat got a specific name, with this material that is in this, except raincoat off course.

    I think the Balmacaan is regular like to the knee?
    I'm searching more of middle of the thigh.

    That's just a raincoat, no specific name. A true trench coat is loaded with epaulets, straps, belts, buckles and the like. Very popular in S&M circles, consequently.

    Loro Piana does a Storm System cotton blend single-breasted raincoat that should not be more pricey than a Burberry.

    I thought trench coats were for trenches.

    Balmacaan?

    bal·ma·caan (blm-kn, -kän)
    n.
    A loose, full overcoat with raglan sleeves, originally made of rough woolen cloth.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    [After Balmacaan, an estate near Inverness, Scotland.

    A great name, but Balmacaan's are a heavier fabric, and are basically full overcoats as opposed to a lighter "rain coat" like the one referred to in this thread!

    I guess the car coat was what I wanted in length and everything,
    although I can't find this type of jacket in Burberry, and burberry Is what I want.

    But thank you again guys for your help!

    Burberry is pretty overrated now, IMO.
