The trench coat is crafted in a heavy cotton gabardine fabric.
Invented by Thomas Burberry in 1879, cotton gabardine is a tightly woven, weatherproof fabric that protects against the elements.
A closely cut design, the trench coat features set-in sleeves, a belted waist and narrow button closure.
Design details reference the coat's military heritage: epaulettes are positioned on the shoulders, a gun flap fastens at the chest and a storm shield covers the upper back. A throat latch and hook-and-eye collar provide further protection from the weather.
