Though it began as a military uniform, the trench coat has become a cornerstone of the twenty-first century wardrobe, a kind of chic yet classic envelope that perfectly balances form and function. From linen to leather, The Trench Book explores the stylish evolution of this outerwear icon in design and fashion: the mystique of a private investigator's coat, the sinister allure of the leather trench, the ultra-sexy sheath with nothing underneath. Produced with the help of the traditional trench brand, Aquascutum, this book is richly illustrated and seriously documented with interesting facts, visiting the heyday of this classic through film, fashion, history, and many contemporary heroes. All in all, The Trench Book is the authoritative volume on a timeless coat.
