When it comes to timeless style pieces, there are few more important and globally recognized than the trench coat (and perhaps bomber jackets and aviator glasses for that matter too). With an extensive history that dates back to the 1800s, trench coats are a symbolization of status and sophistication whose roots began with the British Military Officers from that time period who wore the coats as a way to distinguish ranking, file, and class differences. You could very well say that trench coats for men were something comparable to a military uniform, obviously making them held in high regard. As far as the coats becoming more available to regular “civilians,” and a modern high fashion staple so to speak, well that is something that remains debated to this day. Whether that's the case or not, today we're taking a look at the best trench coats for men from the Banana Republic Water-Resistant Trench Coat ($189.99) to the coveted Burberry Short Kensington Heritage Trench Coat ($2,590)

The History of the Trench Coat

Two British luxury clothing brands, Aquascutum and Burberry, claim to be the ones to have invented the coat. Aquascutum’s claims go back to the 1850s, so that technically makes them the first as Thomas Burberry didn’t invent the gabardine fabric until 1879, and isn’t on record submitting an official trench coat design until 1901. Whatever the case may be, both brands had a huge impact on the evolution of the jackets, as it became popular amongst men in the early 1900s. And while the 1960s are viewed as the “popular” decade for trench coats thanks to the likes of Mr. James Bond, popular actors were wearing trench coats, specifically in detective movies, as far back as the 1930s and 1940s (Cary Grant is an actor that automatically comes to mind). In fact, you could even make the argument that trench coats have/did become synonymous with crime/mystery/detective films.

As you can see, the history behind trench coats is actually quite interesting, and might make for a separate article all together. However, you came here to get a list of some of the best trench coats on the market to shop for. We’ve put together a list of the best trench coats for men ranging from coats that you can cop at your department stores around the corner, to the finest luxury offering.

While Ferragamo is certainly a brand that you have to make an investment with, the investment is well worth it when you take into consideration the small details such as the tailoring on the front and back, and the activewear finish the coat has.

The wool fabric serves to provide warmth during the cold seasons, and as we mentioned before, is naturally water-repellent for when you have to encounter rain and snow.


15. Lacoste Men’s Heritage 3-In-1 Trench

  • Material: 66% Percent Cotton, 34% Polyamide
  • Sizing: 44 - 58
  • Color: Beige/White

Those two pieces can either be worn separately or together if you utilize the fastening system that can be found within the shoulders of the trench.
