Thomas Burberry wasn’t quite the inventor of the trench coat but his name became synonymous and he popularized it and therefore, today, if people think about a trench coat, the first thing that comes to mind is a Burberry trench coat. The company has been making trench coats for over 150 years, they’ve been around since 1856 and it’s just an iconic garment.
The classic Burberry double breasted trench coat today costs eighteen hundred and ninety five dollars in the Burberry website. Yes, you should definitely go with a double-breasted version because that’s the original. The current heritage models they offer have the typical Novacek, they also added it underneath the collar which looks nice if you like it popped up, but also the lining is Novacek. Novacek is a name for a specific tartan that is usually associated with Burberry, although it’s also imitated by other companies. Unlike in previous years, this trench coat is made in England as the original one and it is made out of a hundred percent cotton gabardine which is a fabric Thomas Burberry invented or at least became famous and well known for, and it’s the ideal material you want for a trench coat.
The great thing about a modern Burberry trench coat is that it comes in four lengths as well as four fit styles. Now, the fit of all Burberry trench coats is slimmer than it used to be it’s simply an adaptation to modern times which in my opinion, is not a bad thing because you want to trim look that flatters your body line. The relaxed fit is definitely the widest fit they offer and it’s made for layering, so if you wear jackets underneath a lot, maybe a sweater or a cardigan, this is the fit you should get.
The classic fit is more tapered in the waist yet you can still wear a suit jacket underneath of it.
The slim fit is a slimmest fit they offer and it’s not meant to be worn with something underneath but it creates a very nice if you shape.
Last but not least, there’s a tailored fit. the tailored fit is somewhere between a classic fit and a slim fit. In terms of a length, the original trench coat was quite long and ranged from ankle length, all the way up to knee length. Today, Burberry’s lengths are much shorter.
So is it worth to get the Burberry trench coat?
Every gentleman should have a trench coat but it doesn’t necessarily have to be Burberry. Fortunately, it won’t go out of style and Burberry is associated with the original. Even though almost 1900 dollars for a cotton overcoat is quite a bit of money, you’d consider the cost per wear as this garment can be worn in every transitional season between fall winter, and spring summer.
On the other hand, if you want a flattering fit and you want to choose between the different lengths and the fits, and if you have the money, it’s definitely worth it. It’s a good investment, it won’t go out of style, and you won’t regret your purchase.
So are vintage Burberry trench coats worth it?
Yes, absolutely! No matter your budget everyone can afford that one. You can find them at flea markets or maybe on eBay, just make sure you’re able to return them. As always, it pays to know the measurements of the garment as well as your own so you’ll find something that fits.
So at the end of the day, is a Burberry trench coat worth it?
New, it is not worth it if you want the original length and the original width and fullness however, if you want the modern fit and if you have the money, it’s definitely worth it. if you go with a vintage trench coat, it is definitely worth it because it will never go out of style you can always wear it. the cost per wear is low and it’s just a classic staple that every man should have.
