    Revolutionary for Over a Century

    An Iconic Design

    Made in Castleford, Yorkshire for over 50 years and cut from gabardine – a revolutionary fabric that Thomas Burberry invented in 1879. Polished and practical, a beautiful water-resistant cotton that remains at the heart of Burberry. The trench coat evolved from the Tielocken coat, patented by Thomas Burberry in 1912.

    Design Details

    A revolutionary fabric that’s lightweight and breathable. Before gabardine’s invention, traditional water-resistant fabrics were waxed or rubberised to repel water – making them heavy, stiff and uncomfortable to wear.

    A design born from function to protect the military during the First World War. Its unmistakable epaulettes originally displayed an officer’s rank, while the belt’s metal D-rings were used to attach equipment.
