this coat, our take on the classic trench, has many discreet and subtle features that suggest modernity while remaining very recognisable. cotton gabardine was created as an alternative to the heavy woollen overcoats worn in wwii trenches. it is lightweight, strong and shower proof obtaining a coated feel without losing any breathability. gabardine cottons went from being used in war to being used in sport, especially fishing as a fishing hook would never get caught in the fibres of the fabric unlike a wool. deriving from the trench coat’s military beginnings we keep elements like the epaulettes and double breasted fastening. however, we add black lip mother of pearl buttons, tab closures on the vent and cuff and traditionally formal pockets to separate this trench from others. having sadly died on the battlefields of wwii perhaps jenny’s great grandfather saw the birth of the trench coat and would have gone on to adapt and redesign it himself.
