As Far as Trench Coats Go, This One Is the Trenchiest

So, you want to buy a trench coat. Of course you do. Beloved by the likes of Cary Grant, Humphrey Bogart and flashers the world over — hopefully you’re aiming to dress more like the first two — it’s an elegant and essential icon that every man should own at some point in his life.

And now, thanks to the fellas at the aptly-named American Trench, it’s never been easier to get your hands on a stylish, archetypal, reasonably-priced version.


Tailored in the US from water-resistant cotton Ventile — the very same textile used for British flight suits in the Second World War — it’s cut trim and modern while still roomy enough to fit over a suit jacket or sport coat.

Add in a handy removable hood, a couple of hidden interior pockets to hold your phone and keys, and a dandy plaid lining, and you’ve got yourself a trench that’d make Grant, Bogart and, yes, all those flashers very proud.
