I just bought a DB Aquascutum trench coat and I am liking the coat (needs to be dry cleaned though). Problem is, this being my first trench, there appears to be so many bells and whistles in that coat that I don't know what to do with them.


I might post pictures later, but I was just wondering if there is page explaining in detail what all those buttons, loops and pieces of fabric are I'd appreciate that a lot. I tried searching for thread about trench coats, but I did not see anything regarding how to use the trench coat


Thanks in advance

My office is next to Aquascutum on Regent St and ogle their wares regularly! Great coats, but perhaps you may have more luck if you post some pictures..

forgive my ignorance, but i'm not sure what the problem is...

pockets = put stuff in
buttons = to button up the jacket
fabric = to keep you warm
loops = keeps the belt in place

He's probably asking about the different ways of buttoning/wearing, storm flaps and extra closure etc.

Personally, I like to keep my grenades on the D-rings

i think a pic would help then, since trench styles differ greatly brand to brand.

but seriously, button them as you wish, not sure how you can go wrong.

storm flaps - leave them alone, what else can you do? extra closure?

Is it the Kingsgate model, by any chance? If so, take a look at the Aquascutum DB trench in my sales post in my sig - there are pics of me wearing it in a few different configurations. The fun of a trenchcoat is its military origins; I love all the bells & whistles that they come with... even if I don't wear grenades in day to day life!
