The Trench coat is a primary staple in a woman's wardrobe especially in the Northwest.  Images of French women, Femme Fatales, soldiers, movie characters donning the Trench come to mind.  This classic cult favorite is once again at the center of fashion for year round pleasure.  As a Northwest native, rain, wind and sometimes snow is a year round constant reminder of the necessity of owning a waterproof coat.  The Trench fits the bill and is always in-style.  Combine with turtlenecks, jeans, boots, black pants, skirts, dresses, scarves and know that you are elegantly dressed and ready for anything. What is the history of the infamous Trench you dare ask?   The Trench originated in Britain and was originally designed as a sporting coat for the upper crust preparing for an hunting excursion.  The popularity of the Trench raced to the top during WWI, when British officers wore them for wet weather protection.  Afterwards, The Trench became a mainstay in civilian life and adopted by all. 

Celebrities have ennobled the Trench coat in film and in life.  Top Trench icons include Audrey Hepburn, Jackie Kennedy, Brigette Bardot, Jane Birkin, and many of today's modern entertainers embrace the look.  The staple is typically khaki, waterproof and can be worn practically year round in every climate.  The Trench can be dressed up or dressed down and remains throughout history a show stopper.   You can't go wrong investing in this high quality revered coat.  The Trench.  Don't leave home without it.
