Don’t go through rain season without one of the most timeless and commanding garments a man can own: the trench coat.
Here are three from my personal wardrobe.
1. Classic Khaki
The beauty of menswear is that it’s rooted in tradition and timeslessness is celebrated. Therefore, there are certain “classic” pieces that have lasted the test of time and can safely be considered long-term investments.
A well-made khaki trench is one of those pieces.
Yellow can be tough color to pull-off, especially for us pale-skinned folks.
I usually avoid bright yellow (not always) and gravitate toward deeper/darker versions; like mustards, ochres, and golds. These more saturated hues look great against browns and camels in the Spring, too.
I’m a big fan of monochromatic looks and using textures, rather than colors, to create depth and contrast.
