What is a Trench Coat?

The history of the trench coat stretched back to the late 1800s when the British army began to wear waterproof coats that could protect them from rain and cold weather in the trenches (excavation ground). Hence the name trench coat.

According to Michael Andrews' brief history of trench coats, Initially, only British officers owned and wore trench coats during the war, which distinguished them from the rank and file — a distinction that denoted class differences as well, for military officers at the time came from the aristocracy. The trench coat quickly became a symbol of status and class.

As the war went on, trench coats took civilian culture by storm. The coats, already being mass-produced to serve the war effort, appealed to everyday customers for the same reasons they appealed to servicemen: They were all-around more functional and comfortable than anything else on the market, they communicated an air of sophistication, and they looked good no matter what was worn underneath.

After the war, Hollywood boosted the garment’s popularity. Humphrey Bogart immortalized the look in films such as Casablanca and The Maltese Falcon. 

War and the trenches are long gone but the trench coat is here to stay. Today, it is considered a timeless winter fashion. Royals, celebrities, and people from all walks of life love to wear trench coats.

A classic trench coat is belted at the waist with raglan sleeves ending in cuff straps around the wrists that also buckle, to keep water from running down the forearm when using binoculars in the rain. The coat often has epaulets that are button-close, which were functional in a military context.
