Banana Republic's men's chino trenchcoat

Mother Nature’s moody temperament in spring naturally means a trench—perfect for heading off both morning chills and evening breezes—becomes a necessary part of any wardrobe. This season, Banana Republic returns to its roots with a utilitarian aesthetic. The preppy American brand has re-imagined the classic coat with such textured details as crinkled, metallic-thread silks and satiny poplin to create soft and versatile silhouettes. Ladies can don the classic chino trench ($240), while men can slip on a four-pocket utility jacket ($210).
