Our Ventile Despatch Motor Trench Coat with Cashmere Liner has been created in collaboration with Simon Crompton of Permanent Style.

The ultimate trench coat for all year round, this double-breasted trench coat features a traditional oversized wing collar and lapels. The collar boasts van dyke and multi-stitching together with an adjustable throat tab that can be concealed when not worn. The inset raglan sleeve provides a crisp smart appearance to the front and enhanced ease of movement at the back. The traditional gun flaps and back saddle are for additional protection from the elements.

Detailing includes a despatch rider's document pocket, an "unlosable" belt attached to the side seam boasts original 101 Reece eyelets and two military inspired D-rings. There are two external cargo pockets with oversized flaps, stud adjustable cuffs and stud adjustable vents.

The garment can be fastened by British-made combat buttons and also by a non-intrusive half belt, which can be hidden away in a discreet jet pocket on the facing. The leather buckle can be held in place when not in use by an internal branded stud which proudly proclaims that this garment has been "Made in Manchester". It is beautifully finished with taped seams that ensure this a 100% waterproof British-made masterpiece.
