What do Clark Kent (Super Man), Humphrey Bogart, and Inspector Gadget all have in common? If you guessed a trench coat you are absolutely correct. These famous men all wore the classic trench coat.

The history of the trench coat is a topic debated over time, but the commonly accepted story in the creation of the trench starts with Thomas Burberry who designed these multi-functional light jackets for the British military during world war one.  The coat was dubbed a “trench coat” by the soldiers who named it after the ditches they dug to protect themselves from enemy fire.
