trench coats

Trench coats are definitely hot! And when you are someone like me who lives in a tropical country like the Philippines, they can literally be hot to wear. But in anyway, I still love trench coats because it adds to the sophistication of anyone who wears it. Just make sure that the cut and the design is right, and that you have the height to wear it. Personally, I think trench coats are to be worn by people over 6 feet. Otherwise, you would look like someone who just got out of the shower. Get what I mean?

Anyway, since one of my friends, who will be off to China this December, is trying to look for a good trench coat, here are some of my suggestions. 

burberry-trenchThis very chic trench coat shown above is from Burberry, the known pioneer for such genius creation. This is a double-breasted belted trench coat made out of cotton. The simplicity of the design and the chicness of the cut would surely accentuate and level-up one’s style. 









hugo-trench-coatThis lambskin leather trench coat shown above is just perfect. The classic double-breasted trench is given a twist by the leather that it is made of, which can totally add to the sophistication of your look. This one’s from Hugo Boss by the way.

The whole get-up represents the union of the modern man and the classic, sophisticated man, which is very unlikely nowadays.  So hats off to Bill Tornade for this wonderful piece.

Gosh! I wish I could wear one of these someday. But anyway, I really love the Burberry trench coat!

  1. Slightly off topic maybe, also a bit of a strange query, but I’m just after a bit extra information about the manufacture of Uggs footwear. Does anyone know which type of sheep the boots are manufactured from? And are real UGGs made from the same breed as the copies?
