Shop: London Fog Trench Coat
I’ve purchased several trench coats over the last few years, and I’ve mostly worn them during my travels abroad. When I lived in Miami trench coats were not necessary, but now that I live in New York City I find myself reaching for a trench during Spring and Fall. I was looking for a timeless trench coat that would hold up over the years, and that had a reasonable price tag. After checking out various brands, I decided on London Fog’s Double-Breasted Hooded Trench Coat. I am really happy with it, so today I wanted to share my review of this classic coat that is one of the most versatile pieces I own.
About London Fog
Here is a little bit of information about the London Fog brand. The Londontown Clothing Company was founded in 1923. During WWII, the company was known for making waterproof coats for the United States Navy. London Fog introduced coats for women in the 1950s and went public in the 1960s. A decade later, two thirds of all raincoats sold in the U.S. were London Fog, and soon after, London Fog became the world’s largest outerwear manufacturer.
Is London Fog a good brand?
Over the last 100 years, London Fog has become a premier global lifestyle brand. Today, products manufactured by London Fog include trench coats, raincoats, jackets, parkas, handbags and umbrellas. London Fog has been ranked as one of the most recognized brands of outerwear in the United States.
My Review of the London Fog Trench Coat
The London Fog Trench Coat is a must-have piece for your wardrobe. Two details that I personally love about this trench coat are that: the hood can be removed easily, and that this classic design comes with large thick buttons. With regards to taking care of the trench coat, although I have not washed it yet, it is machine washable. Finally, just like the majority of clothing items that I purchase online, the coat arrived with wrinkles, but it was very easy to iron them out. Overall, this is a great trench, at a reasonable and affordable price.
The London Fog Double-Breasted Hooded Trench Coat measures approximately 38″ long from center back to hem. The trench coat has a removable hood, two pockets at the waist, and a removable belt. The petite version of this coat comes in two colors (British Khaki and Dawn) and measures approximately 36″ long from center back to hem. To shop the petite version of the trench coat, you may click here. For reference, I am wearing a regular size S and sometimes wonder whether I should’ve gotten an XS. The trench coat fits loosely on me, but once the weather cools down it will be perfect to wear over a chunky sweater.
