Today's Fact or Crap: Trench Coats

My Fact or Crap calendar has sure been work-related of late. Here was yet another interesting factoid (or could it be crapoid)?


Trench coats were used, quite literally, in the trenches.

That would be FACT.

The jacket, which went on to reach peaks of fashion success even on couture runways, was first worn by British soldiers during WWI. The design kept the soldiers warm and dry in the dark trenches throughout Northern France and Belgium.

Here is a new Flowing Metallic Trench coat by Rainforest we recently received in stock. It also comes in Ruby Red and Pewter. The trench isn't just for wearing in the trenches anymore!
