    In the situation I could only have one?

    The classic Burberry. The first and the best.

    Combining the features proposed by Robin, Whodini, and Fuuma (the slim silouhette and button on the collar) will make an amazing trench IMO.

    Always a bad idea asking the populace.

    Right now we are just waiting for the buttons to come in and doing some minor adjustments to the collar.

    excited about seeing it. I kinda wanna trench these days even though it wouldn't get much run in florida. There is a green/white/other colors plaid marc jacobs trench on sufu that i really want for some reason. I've been resisting the impulse for a month now [​IMG]

    I'm definitely excited for this reveal...

    I already have a black trench; I'd like to include an ivory, a medium grey, or potentially a green tone to my closet. MJK, can you give us a hint at least re: the chosen swatches? Is there going to be just one color offered?

    I have a feeling this will be a pretty remarkable (and thus demanded) piece once it comes to fruition. Hopefully I don't miss the boat.

    /\\ One above looks really good. Perfect length too.

    Any info on a overall length and possibility of a single-breasted trench/rain coat? Also; is your trench 100%Cotton or mix fabric?
    Will it be lined?

    Except for the $2k price tag, that Burberry Prorsum coat is awesome.

    The available colors will be black, khaki & olivewood (a dark green). It will be unlined and made out of 100% cotton that has been treated. Despite being unlined the inside still looks clean. It will also be... single breasted. Now before some people start freaking out, please wait until we post the pics to make a judgement. We had quite a bit of discussion about this and felt that the single breasted trench was the way to go. The buttons are also made out of corozo.
