Like folding a pocket square, there are a variety of ways to belt a trench coat. Here are five ways to do it and what it says about you.
1. The Classic
What it says about you: You like things neat and orderly and you always strive for perfection.
Recommended for: Business, a night out at a fancy restaurant, a studio portrait with a Burberry trench coat.
2. The Knot
What it says about you: You are a student of classic Hollywood style – think Humphrey Bogart. You appreciate the classics but like to put your own sartorial stamp on your outerwear.
Recommended for: Business, blazer and tie sharp casual, and anytime you want to flex a little sartorial muscle.
3. The Inside Pocket
What it says about you: You like a clean look and can’t be bothered with how you’re going to belt a trench because you’re much too busy to think about it.
Recommended for: Any work day, those times you’re in a hurry, moments of indecision.
4. The Devil May Care
What it says about you: You’re so cool it doesn’t matter how (or if) you belt your trench coat. It still looks good.
Recommended for: Casual looks, worn with jeans, or with a suit on those days you’re late to work and need to run!
5. The Behind the Back
What it says about you: You care about small details, whether they’re seen or unseen, and will take the time to make sure they’re just right.
Recommended for: Creatives, business guys who like to put in a little style effort, former Boy Scouts who need to show the world their knotting prowess.
