What is Trench Coat?
A trench coat or trenchcoat, is a type of coat made of cotton gabardine drill, leather or poplin. Often with a detachable insulated lining, trench coats generally have raglan sleeves and the more classic versions come in different lengths. From the lengthiest that reaches just above the ankles to the shortest that reaches just above the knee.
Trench coats are traditionally double-breasted with ten front buttons and are noted for their wide lapels, a storm flap and pockets that close by buttons. The coat is belted at the waist by a self-belt and also has straps around the wrists with buckles meant to prevent water from running down the forearm. The coat often has shoulder straps that also button-close but this is purely a military feature of functionality. The traditional colour of trench coats is khaki but over the years colour variations have expanded double-fold.
