Buy a cool trench

The Kit - - NEWS -

It’s the over­coat that de­fined a gen­er­a­tion of black-and-white-era stars ( Casablanca and Break­fast at Tifffff­fany’s, any­one?) and now, decades into its life­span, the clas­sic trench coat is get­ting a re­fash­ion­ing. At Marni and Michael Kors, ex­tra-long, loose waist ties kicked the trench’s prim and proper rep­u­ta­tion to the curb, while Burberry, the orig­i­nal pur­veyor of the trench, added an ’80s puffffed sleeve in out-there leop­ard print. Turns out, you can teach an old coat new tricks.
