Choosing an investment piece isn't easy. There are so many articles out there that will tell you get this and get that, but come on, how many of us actually have that much money to buy 100 investment pieces? Every season they will tell you to get something different - in the end, it's just seasonal. One piece, however, is definitely a staple and will never go out of style. Heck, it hasn't gone out of style for over a century now! And, I'm sure you've guessed it judging by the photos above, it's the timeless and everlasting, Burberry trench coat. Our top tips for choosing which style and colour - get one that you know you will wear. There are those times where you think to yourself, 'You know what? I'm going to be different today!', this is not the day for that. Get a style you feel comfortable in. If you know you are going to be wearing blazers or jackets under your trench, get a raglan sleeve (like the Westminster). If you want that structured look, go for the Kensington (like what we have). Also, make sure the colour is right for you - they come in honey, stone or black. Lastly, the absolute must for us, get the cotton gabardine version - it is heavily water and wind resistant! The rain will just create little water balls on your coat and all you do it wipe them off and ta-da! Your coat is still dry.
At the end of the day, this piece will be with you forever. We think it's well worth it.
