The trench coat was invented by Thomas Burberry (he also invented the gabardine fabric), who submitted a design for an army officer’s raincoat to the war office of the UK in 1901. Now, it’s a staple wardrobe piece in just about everyone’s closet.  As spring approaches and the rainy season ensues a classic trench coat is ideal.  Here are a few ways the classic trench coat has evolved.  Be sure to shop for one this season!
