Belt Up The Trench Coat | How To Wear Trench Coat The Right Way

We are here to help you to decide whether to belt or leave the trench unbelted.

Should I Belt The Trench Coat


A Trench coat is a double breasted, water resistant over coat designed by Thomas Burberry for the French and British soldiers during the world war. They provide insulation, are durable, serve as rain coats when it pours and wind cheaters during storms. Apart from this, the design makes it extremely functional, to strap on everything from water bottles to hand grenades, plus it has a number of pockets on the outside as well as on the inside.

Thus, its no surprise that the trench coat is so popular. Now I admit men no longer need to strap on grenades to their coats post the wars but the trench coat was more than that. It was stylish, offered protection, built strong and not to mention supremely cool! Thus it survived the wars and reigned strong as a great option for an over coat till date.

Now coming to the question at hand. How to decide whether to belt or leave the trench unbelted. The final decision of course is up to the wearer

  • Stout men should avoid the belt as it draw attention to the mid section.
