Perhaps no garment is as romanticised as the trench coat; from South Africa to France to Casablanca to London, it has remained functional and almost unchanged for over 100 years. A trench coat should be large enough to be worn over a suit jacket or heavy sweater.  A good measure is to try on a coat and button it up fully – the shoulders should extend out past your natural shoulder by .5 to 1 full inch (to allow room for a suit jacket), and you want to be able to fit a full fist in the chest area while having full arm movement.  Next look at the sleeve length – they should be worn 2 to 4 inches longer than a suit jacket’s sleeves, to about the pinch on your hand. Modern trench coat length ranges from 37 to 45 inches; the first trench coats were made longer, often worn only a few inches off the ground to better protect the wearer from the elements.
