Yay or Nay: Topman red trench coat

admin Clothing 3 Comments

As you should already know from keeping up with your only source for fashion news and (that’s Brandish, if ya didn’t realise it), trench coats are back in. We featured a couple of the more impressive looking coats over the last few weeks, including a scary one, a fascist one and a musical one. Generally however, trench coats are pretty standard and even a bit, dare I speak out against a trend, boring.

"Boring", however, isn’t a word you could use to describe Topman’s bright red trench coat (£65). "Garish" and "disgusting" are two words that you could use. The phrase "only to be worn by colour-blind flashers" could also be used in conjunction with this garment.

But that’s just my opinion. Despite my belief that it looks like a prop from freaky thriller Don’t Look Now, you might see the coat in a wrong different way. Let us know what you think.

  • Like it (*i think), different from the normal sensible beige, but as with all trench coats…. it’s the cut/fit that will determine whether it’s a winner or not.

    Sorry I really don’t think you know what you are talking about, this trench is a bold move that pays off for Topman. It is about time that we see high street brands making their mark, they have put a twist on the classic trench and come up with a rather cool outcome. I say good on them – and I will be purchasing this weekend.
