In the Trenches

I just bought a Chloe trench from the resort collections. As I sit at my desk writing this post, it is rainy and grey out- a trench is a useful purchase right now.

Sadly, my beloved Tom Ford for Gucci trench is no longer presentable. I had hoped to wear it forever, but it’s time for it to be retired (honestly, it is falling apart but I was in denial).

The trench is without a doubt the IT coat this season and there are plenty to choose from.

  1. Preston, you must have seriously worn your Tom Ford for Gucci trench to death! I mean you really can’t wear it now? Glad you updated…I love the way Carine wear hers, and needless to say Alexa. She never puts a foot wrong when it comes to effortless dressing. That’s Ines’ daughter?? heavens, she’s beautiful, like mother like daughter. Not keen on the Burberry ad for the trench…too boring.

  2. I agree with this post! I’m wondering if you guys could suggest other trenches that you like, if celine and chloe are (sadly) a little too expensive…
    thank you!!

  3. A.P.C. makes the best trenches at a lower price point and they are on sale right now! Preston
