Here Comes The Rain Again: Trench Coats For Men


One of my first posts on The Domestic Princess was my selection of trench coats for women, and I promised to come back with my edit for men, so here it is!  As I said in my post for the ladies, a trench coat should be a staple in everybody’s wardrobe, as it never goes out of fashion – the trench coat has pretty much remained unchanged for over 100 years.  I still firmly believe that a trench is an investment.  Oh, and if you’re wondering….I’m still lusting after a Burberry one, but am unlikely to be the proud owner of this little gem whilst I’m residing so close to the equator!

  1. Mid-length cotton trench coat, £595 from Burberry (also available in black and taupe)
  2. Long cotton gabardine trench cost, £1,095 from Burberry (also available in black and honey)
  3. Double-breasted trench coat, £79.99 from Zara (also available in brown)
  4. Full length trench coat, £75 from Topman
  5. Wedgewood trench, $213*/£175 from J Crew 
  6. Cotton trench, £119.99 from Mango (also available in black)

Domestic Princess tips

  1. Buy the best you can afford.  I know people who’ve had their Burberry trenches for over 10 years.  Think of it as an investment.
  2. Decide on the length you’re after.  The length you opt for will depend very much on your stature.  If you’re on the smaller side, a longer trench will just drown you, and likewise for taller men, a short trench will just emphasise your height.
  3. Your trench should be big enough to give you enough room to wear it over a suit or thick sweater.  Opt for a generous fit.  You should be able to button it up comfortably, without looking like you’ve been crow-barred into it.
  4. The sleeves should be around 2 to 4 inches longer than the sleeves on your suit jacket.

So lovely readers, have you invested in a trench?

With much love
