History Of The Trench Coat
The trench coat as we know it was a product of the first world war. It was developed to replace heavier coats worn by British and French soldiers. This relatively modern invention was claimed in the 1850s by two British brands, Burberry and Aquascutum.
The features that make up many of the trench coats we see today were originally adopted during the first World War. Shoulder straps were used for attaching epaulets or rank insignia. The D-ring were used to attach map cases and swords to the belt. Large exterior pockets were used for maps, while cleverly placed flaps and vents dealt with odors associated with early rubber models.
