The trench - also called gabardine - is one of those items that every man should have. A piece that came out from an idea of Thomas Burberry, who patented the woven waterproof fabric who lately named the garment back in 1880. Iconic and emblematic, the trench coat has been part of the British military uniforms, in the same way, has been part of the iconography film thanks to actors like Alain Delon, or the always sophisticated Steve McQueen. Others such us Humphrey Bogart in the role of Rick Blaine ('Casablanca'), or Peter Sellers as Inspector Closeau. Although television, has also greatly helped to enhance the fame of this item. I am talking about detective 'Columbo', who apart from never turn off the cigarette (or the cigar), it was very difficult watch it without his beloved gabardine.
