I love the one in the left. The all black ensemble may seem to be the conventional style throughout the years, but this specific look brings out the chicness that most 3-piece suit lack.
Designer: Burberry Prorsum and Bill Brandt
In the picture below, I specifically like the first two looks. For one, the trench coats have this 2 shades of black that fit well together. Moreover, the slim-fit style of the coat and the rolled up sleeves bring out the edginess that most suits nowadays lack.
I really, really love the brown trench coat seen in the picture below. It is mainly because most guys wear black trench coats that I feel like this uber chic brown trench coat would emanate a look that would make one really stand out in the crowd. And oh yeah, did I mention how cool the belt is? And that gray pants that’s rolled up, which is by the way the in thing last season. Gosh, I so love this look.

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.
This 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.
This 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.
This last piece is from Bill Tornade. This belted wool trench coat with a plaid pattern throughout gives me the goosebumps. 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!
