The Every Classy, Trench Coat

The Trench Coat, developed roughly 100 years before World War I, has become an iconic staple in most closets.  What’s so fascinating is that despite being more than 100 years old, it’s classic shape and style can still be seen even with the touch of today’s fashion trends.

Originally made for military use, hence the name “trench” coat, it wasn’t until 1917 civilians of both sexes started sporting these coats on their city streets.

The signature manufacturer of these coats?  None other than the luxury British brand, Burberry.
