The Beauty of Burberry Bespoke
Burberry has been making iconic trench coats since the nineteen century. While their website has a link to an online store where you can buy trenches from the Heritage, Prorsum, London, and Brit lines, there is one link that gives buyers more control than ever before. Burberry Bespoke has the tag line “Create Your Own Iconic Trench Coat,” and they aren’t kidding.
Bespoke allows men and women to customize style and length, fabric and color, sleeves, lining, collar, buttons and hardware, belts, and even gives you the option of adding a monogram with a choice of four stitching styles. While this sounds amazing, Bespoke isn’t completely customizable. The only options available are the options given so if you want the women’s Wiltshire trench coat in a length other than 84 cm or 101 cm you’re out of luck.
Like most Burberry trench coats, every option available on Bespoke is over $1,000. For those who can afford something so pricey this is the perfect mesh of iconic style and personal taste. For those who cannot afford to spend that much money on a Peacock colored trench coat, my favorite color out of all the options, the website is still fun to play with. Even though I can’t personally afford a Burberry Bespoke trench coat I love the idea behind it. I hope more and more designers use the internet to give buyers more choice and control over their clothes.
