Short Rain Trench
The British military perfected, if not invented, this look last century, in the trenches. Even there, a little style was sewn in. Even there, when lives were at stake. General Patton noticed.
No matter the time or place men enjoy getting the looks (it’s a myth we don’t). A million years of evolution, therapy and self-help can’t change that. The ego lives. So be it. Be dashing. Be daring. Brave men fought in coats like this so you could enjoy one in peacetime.
Short Rain Trench (No. 6965). Classic short double-breasted trench style in premium, weatherproof Japanese cotton/ nylon gabardine. Single back vent (its original purpose was to give a soldier room to run as he moved across the battlefield—protection from strong winds). Gabardine is composed of threads sewn so tightly that the fabric is air and waterproof. Bemberg/cupro lining. Faux horn buttons. Self-fabric belt. Buckles at waist and cuff. Center front neck hook and bar. Trapunto stitching at collar. Detachable throat or “trench” latch for extra coverage at neck. Imported.
