Elevate Your Rainy Day ‘Fits With the Best Trench Coats for Men

Percival Waterproof Sherlock Jacket

The Modern Masterpiece

The Waterproof “Sherlock” Jacket from Percival keeps in line with the brand’s English roots, by name and by mod fit, but don’t let that put you off. It’s a tasty piece of outerwear, cut dashingly short, and an impressive way to introduce yourself to some soggy spring weather.

Burberry "Kensington" Heritage Trench Coat

The OG Luxe Trench

Dating all the way back to 1879, Burberry’s legendary trench is the literal OG of trench coats, and a shining example of the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” mentality. Made from a water-resistant gabardine cloth, the style has stayed shockingly true to its original concept, with a double-breasted outer shell and iconic nova check interior.

London Fog Iconic Trench Coat

The OG Normal Guy Trench

Burberry may be the OG trench, but for the everyday guy, it might as well be a Rolex. London Fog, on the other hand, has inserted itself as the household trench brand over the past century, with a practical, no-frills design that’s constructed to last and is as timeless as it is affordable.

Fursac Paris Checked Water-Repellent Trench Coat

The Parisian Pick

You may not have heard of Fursac Paris, but trust us when we say you’ll want to remember the name. The Parisian label is championing a new era of chic, timeless garb with modern sensibilities and practices, and the end product, like this Checked Trench Coat, is, in a word, glorious.

lululemon Storm Field Trench Coat

The Only Commuter Coat That Matters

As much a tank as a trench coat, lululemon’s Storm Field jacket has seen us through brutal NYC winters with nary a scratch thanks to its seam-sealed waterproof Gylde outer. The jacket has all the performance aspects you could want in a technical jacket — adjustable cuffs, a cinchable hood, back vents and an arsenal of pockets — with that classic trench coat cut.

Brooks Brothers Supima Cotton Thermore Fill Trench Coat

The Bankers Buy

When you think of trench coat, we can only assume you’re imagining some Wall Street fellow, strutting his stuff in this exact Brooks Brothers make. And that’s how it should be; after all, this soft Supima cotton trench slots handsomely over a crisp blazer and generally emulated an aire of a sophisticated man in a way that only Brooks Brothers truly knows how.

Banana Republic Water-Resistant Trench Coat

The Graphic Getup

Case and point — their trench coat has been freshly made over with a handsomely discrete logo graphic and stretched to a relaxed fit, meaning that, much like the new BR, the layer skews mysterious and cool over serious and stuffy.

Uniqlo U Hooded Long Trench Coat

The No Wet Hair" Trench

Having perfect hair is hard. After all, a rainy day can ruin your hard-fought luscious locks in all but a second. To circumvent that problem, opt for Uniqlo U’s latest release, a classy, single-breasted long coat with an oversized removable hood fro maximum protection from adverse elements.

Defined by a collapsable, polished lapel collar, functional long coat structure and belted torso, the trench rose to prominence (and earned its moniker) in the thick of WWI as a British uniform to stave off chill and wet weather. The outerwear has since remained shockingly untouched — many of the military inspirations can still be found in modern interpretations today, despite its shift in occupation.
