Classic meets contemporary in our impeccable trench coat edit
An outerwear staple that we're pleased to welcome back this season is the iconic trench coat. With a history that spans more than a century, this impeccable garment has been a recurring character in the finest cool-weather collections, decade after decade. Choose from a classic men's camel coat or a more relaxed, sporty khaki trench coat. A black trench coat is a critical component of a professional wardrobe, but a sporty new attitude to the look means that long coats for men are no longer relegated to the wet-weather commute.
This season, use layers to create a segmented ensemble and throw a long trench coat on over the top. The silhouette of long coats for men provides the perfect way to pull a look together in an instant. The key to balancing the slick appeal of a trench coat with a more relaxed approach to what's underneath lies in the footwear. Introduce the idea of formality with polished lace-up leather shoes, and enjoy free reign on casual apparel like authentic denim, zip-through hoodies and chunky cardigan knits. Alternatively, team your trench coat with trainers and create a more refined look with button-down shirts and chinos for a confident approach to everyday dressing.
Of course, using a trench coat to add practical polish to your Monday-to-Friday suiting is still (and always will be) an iconic style choice. Layer a navy trench coat over a tonal double-breasted suit and you've got a classic office-ready look with new-season hues and styling elements. Use the belt front to style it your way, tying it loosely at the back or buckling it in front to create a streamlined silhouette.
