A great trench is essential year round but it really comes into it’s own in the autumn when the heavens seem to open at any moment. This is without doubt an item worth the splurge if you can, as you will wear it for years to come. At the risk of being boring, go for a neutral colour as you will want to wear it with absolutely everything.
