Make Mine a Mackintosh

Tuesday, November 6, 2012

There are some pieces of clothing that are trendy and then there are others that are investments…pieces that are timeless and ageless.

Enter the Classic Trench Coat or Mackintosh.  And by classic I mean the 1800’s. Yup it’s that old and doesn’t seem like it will be going anywhere anytime soon. A timeless trench should include these features: double-breasted with buttons down the front, two pockets, a belt and a hemline that falls just below the knee. 

While those tips may help you make you next purchase, the best feautre is that you get to look like a spy off to save the world...from the evil Dr. Claw...(Inspector Gadget anyone?)...then again, it could just be a Mackintosh.

What I am Wearing:
Trench coat:  H&M
Booties: COACH (Old)
Scarf: Ottawa Boutique
Gloves: COACH (Old)


  1. What a stylish trench - the scarf colour looks great with it too.

  2. I have to say now that I own a trench coat I'm a pretty big fan of them! Yours is classic & timeless.
