Alright, let’s just get right down to it, shall we? Everybody needs a trench in their closet. Everyone. That means you. I wasn’t a believer until I started wearing one myself, but I am here to tell you that they go with everything. They look simple and chic over jeans and classic and sexy over dresses. They can be worn over sweaters in the cooler months and worn over tanks in the warmer months. They are versatile and timeless, sophisticated and demure. Need I say more? Of course, there are tons of trenches out there and like pizza, despite what some people say, not every slice (or trench) is made equal. This Burberry Double Breasted Trench is probably about as good as it gets. Exquisitely cut with just enough detailing, I’m going to out on a limb here and say this could be the trench to end all trenches. But excuse me while I wipe away a tear… this coat retails for over $1.000.

ASOS Double Breasted Mac

Folks, just so you know, we rushed to get this post up because we are that certain that this trench will sell out. Another thing you should probably be aware of, is that I actually placed my own order for this coat before sitting down to write this entry. Yes, I was scared you all would buy out all the stock. We’ve got the same great detailing, the slant pockets and great cut. This coat is also available in red, but I’m all about the stone color.
