washed chambray trench
Over one hundred years in the making, the history of the trench coat is a storied one. Originally designed as a British military garment in 1895, it was meant to be lightweight, protect from the elements, and be advantageous with shoulder epaulettes to display rank, storm flaps to keep rain out, and D-rings for securing equipment. The authoritative look rendered it a stylish sportswear option in the 1940’s and a favorite of heads of state and film stars of the time.
Over the years the style’s distinctive look has become a classic and modernized with feminine touches and fabrics. Our softly washed chambray version feels like silk but is machine washable that allows for unparalleled versatility.
