Come in many different types of materials, colors, and lengths. Surely you remember this garment so present in popular culture thanks to the cartoon character Inspector Gadget or the movie Casablanca starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman where both wore trench coats and said the phrase: "We will always have Paris" since then the trench coat has become a modern classic and that is still in trend for the rainiest days of the year.

Its innovative and functional origin is attributed to the English designer Thomas Burberry, with the arrival of World War I. In 1914, the trench coat was invented with a functional design of loops for hanging military equipment, a front flap to offer additional protection and a waterproof panel on the back to allow water to slide easily.



Burberry founded its fashion brand in 1979 and created the waterproof, breathable fabric that wore the trench coat as we know it. The trench coat became so popular that British Royalty granted the honor to the fashion house Burberry of being its supplier of waterproof garments for different occasions.

The british and sophisticated touch makes this revolutionary garment stand out, what are you waiting for to wear a trench coat this season?


Care to keep your Trench Coat looking like new

One of the garments that resists the passage of time and seasons with a lot of style is the trench coat. If you have invested in one and want to keep it, I recommend the following tips to wash it at home.



If your trench coat has been stained do not panic, you will need a stain removal soap and take into account the following steps:

1.-First remove the belt and other accessories from your trench coat.

2.-Add a detergent for delicate clothes in your washing machine, what do I mean by delicate fabrics such as: cotton, silk, linen and satin. Fill your washing machine with normal care clothes and in colors similar to those of your trench coat.Also add the belt and accessories previously removed.

3.-Configure the washing machine with a hot-hot, cold-cold or cold-hot cycle for approximately 45 minutes.

4.-Put the trench coat in the dryer with a delicate program and low temperature.

5.-Once the cycle ends, remove the trench coat, belt and accessories immediately to prevent wrinkling.

6.-Put it to dry the trench coat outdoors and do not expose it too much to the sun because it could lose its original color.

With these tips your trench coat will look impeccable and ready to wear for those rainy days with very cold.
