The trench coat – a versatile garment – either worn to protect what is beneath or to be opened up to the world. Made for light showers and styled for the sharp elegant man; this once rural piece of outerwear has now found a romantic setting within the city. Expanding  its stomping ground beyond the country valleys and into every man’s wardrobe. An essential piece of kit for all apes.
