Today's classic trench coat began as a military uniform and became a cornerstone of the 21st century wardrobe; a kind of chic, yet classic envelope that perfectly balances form and function. From linen to leather, this authoritative volume explores the stylish evolution of the outerwear icon in design and fashion: the mystique of a private investigator's coat, the sinister allure of the leather trench, the ultra-sexy sheath with nothing underneath. Produced with the help of the traditional trench brand, Aquascutum, this book is full of rich illustrations and facts, visiting the heyday of this classic in history through film, fashion, and its contemporary heroes.
