LAST UPDATED - October 19, 2022

What's the most versatile jacket you could add to your wardrobe this season? Undoubtedly, the timeless trench coat.

The "invention" of the trench coat is credited to Thomas Burberry, who created it as a protective raincoat for British military officers during World War I. While modern iterations come in every color, fabric, and cut, traditional styles are made from khaki-colored cotton with a minimalist, utilitarian feel.

Below, we've rounded up seventeen of the season's timeless and best men's trench coats, from splurge-worthy statement pieces to timeless basics that'll be a staple in your wardrobe for years to come. If you're new to the world of trenches, start with something neutral and layerable to maximize wearability.
