I’m in London this week for a business trip and it feels so good to be back! I forgot just how much I missed this city! Today’s vintage obsession is on The Mac…or Trench Coat as we Americans call it.
Originally worn by British and French soldiers in the First World War, the Mac was initially used as an alternative to heavy serge greatcoats. Created by none other than Thomas Burberry himself, these coats evolved over time, becoming the fashionable coats we now know as being worn during rainy days. I can honestly say, being in London, as much as it rains here you’d be displaced not to own a Mac in this city.
Here are some of my picks (pictures courtesy of the Etsy website):
Until next time!
