    Hi,
    I am looking for a less-recent burberry trench coat, with wool lining.
    I actually found one on eBay, but before buying it, I have a major concern.
    I am 175 cm tall (5"74), and this coat is a 40 short, extending for 47,5 inches.
    Living in the countryside, where is hard to observe people wearing coats like these, I am not sure if I am tall enough to wear it.
    It should go some inches below my knees.
    I can see that modern overcoats fall well above the knee, and that is not the case of this trench.
    It seems to me that tailorings have changed over the years.
    Anyway, I've never worn one Ike these, and I really would like to buy it, before someone else takes it.

    May anybody give me suggestions about this issue?



    Thank you for your time
