My dear fashionistas, I hope you are ready for a new fashion adventure. Autumn is the most interesting fashion period when we all tend to experiment a lot and play with fashion. A trench coat is the best investment with which you can always create a large number of outfit combinations without much thought. My story today will be dedicated to my most favorite British fashion house that you had the opportunity to see years ago on the Mr.M blog – Burberry.
All the people who have been following my blog for years know that I have a great love for Burberry trench-coats and coats, honestly I don’t even know how many of their fashion pieces I own anymore, but I know that this is my favorite trench and the color that I always like to wear – the color of honey. Soft pastel golden camel color that blends very easily with other colors.
Burberry trenchcoats and coats represent the pinnacle of world fashion and have become indispensable fashion classics today. These coats were created by the founder of the Burberry company, Thomas Burberry, more than 100 years ago, inspired by the British heritage, and at the same time introduced elements of urban fashion.
You can find all classic Burberry coats in 5 basic models: Legendary Kensington, Westminster, Chelsea, Waterloo and Pimlico. All models are named after London districts. What is the difference between these models?
The Kensington – a classic model with a modern cut that easily adapts to any silhouette. The most popular model, which is available in four basic colors: gray, navy, honey color (camel) and black. Also, this model is made in two lengths. The coat you see on me today is this model.
The Westminster – a model that is extended (oversized) and lightly cut for a draped silhouette. Basic colors: honey color (camel) and dark green (khaki). Also, this model is made in two lengths.
The Chelsea – a model characterized by a slim fit (narrow form close to the body) with narrow shoulders and a cut waist. The basic colors are honey and taupe and it is also available in two lengths.
The Waterloo – A more comfortable fit, a longer model than the classic with a subtle and relaxed fit that is ideal for layering. This model is usually made in three basic colors: maroon, black and honey-camel and is available in only one length.
The Pimlico, a simple flat cut decorated with a single-row fastening of a minimalistic character and a modern cut. This model is usually made in navy, biscuit (biscuit color) and honey color – camel. This model is also only available in one classic length.
I would like to note that all the listed colors are only classics that are always produced, but the Burberry company introduces seasonal colors to enrich its offer.
Most Burberry coats have been hand-crafted in Castleford, Yorkshire for over 50 years from gabardine – a revolutionary fabric that Thomas Burberry proudly introduced in 1879. Polished, light and practical, beautiful cotton resistant to all kinds of weather conditions that remains at the heart of the Burberry brand to this day.
The classic coat model originated and developed from the basic form of the Tielocken coat, which was patented in 1912 by Thomas Burberry. A simple but refined unique shape that has been adapted over the years and has become a recognizable Burberry coat.
Each Burberry coat is special and has its own story – one that is made to last and write new pages of life’s chapters together with you. Buying a Burberry trench or coat is an investment, it is a fashion piece that can really be worn nicely and for a long time with proper maintenance and it is a thing you can leave for generations to come. I inherited my first Burberry coat from my grandfather and today I keep it carefully and wear it on special occasions because it has a special sentimental value for me.
When the time comes to buy a Burberry trench, it’s a big deal and especially if you are buying a coat for the first time it is very important to buy a “iconic” piece that you can combine with your items from your wardrobe and it is best to buy a coat in your favorite color, without blindly following trends.
To the readers of the Mr.M blog, I have become a recognizable symbol of autumn precisely because of the Burberry trench coats and I have received numerous questions about the advice for smart purchase of a Burberry coat. I have tried to highlight important questions and provide you with adequate answers that can help you during your purchase. All answers represent my personal opinion and certain observations, so don’t generalize things, take this as buying advice.
What are the basic colors you should think about when buying a Burberry trench or coat? There is no universal answer to this question, but I will share with you my opinion and some of my colleagues and fashion experts with whom I like to exchange opinions. I think that for a start, there are 3 colors by which the Burberry trench or coat is recognizable, and they are: Beige (washed stone color), Camel (honey color) and Black color.
These three colors are some fashion statement basics, but as I said it all depends on the taste of the owner of the new Burberry trench, maybe that customer thinks that the basic colors in the palette are: red, purple and olive green. Therefore, a person will decide to buy a coat in one of those colors, which Burberry has in its seasonal offer.
Is the length of the coat crucial when making a purchase decision? Of course! I always try to advise people to buy iconic items in classic cuts and lengths and not to blindly follow trends. Trends are changing, one season there are modern coats of casual cuts with puff sleeves quite long length to the ground, after two months or a year later another trend comes. My most honest advice is to buy a coat of length that suits your body constitution in proportion to your own height. Burberry trench coats exist in several lengths and I am sure you can always find the ideal coat for yourself.
Once again, is it worth investing money in a honey trench coat? If you are a fan of camel color and have a lot of things in pastel or neutral colors, then I think you know the right answer. If you feel some kind of insecurity while trying on a camel coat and reconsider your decision several times, I think it’s best to try another color. When you buy an expensive item like a Burberry coat it is something that must be accompanied by a feeling of fulfillment and security.
The trench coat or a coat are pieces that are worn over other pieces of clothing, so it is best to look at your favorite pieces of clothing and shoes before buying and judge for yourself which are the two or three colors that might come into consideration when buying a coat. Camel color is a neutral color and blends with other colors with great ease, but each of us knows our wardrobe best and you may find the ideal solution since buying a Burberry coat is a real investment.
Did we fit in nicely at the end? Honestly, I believe we are. After so many years of loyalty to this British brand and because of my personal interest, I have learned a lot about their offer and I am lucky to always be able to show my favorite pieces from the fashion house Burberry on my blog.

Watch: Schroeder Joailliers 1877
Schroeder Joailliers was founded back in 1877, the official supplier of the Grand Ducal Court, which has a long family tradition behind it. In addition to its main jewelry store located in the heart of Luxembourg, this jewelry house also has its jewelry and watch workshop in Paris.
The story of Schroeder jewelry began back in 1860 when Mr. Lambert Schroeder left his hometown of Luxembourg to continue his training in London and the United States. A few years later when he returned to Luxembourg in 1877, he opened his goldsmith’s shop, in the same place where you can still find the Schroeder jewelry house today. Mr. Lambert Schroeder, in addition to being a skilled trader, translated his creativity and passion into the core values of the work policy of the Schroeder jewelry company. He had a great passion for making quality gold jewelry and was an ambitious innovator significantly ahead of his time.
His only son, Ferdi Schroeder, learned the engraver’s trade in Paris and took over the company with the difficult task of running it during the two world wars. His great skill in his art earned him the prestigious title of chief supplier to the court, which the Schroeder jewelry house still holds today. During 1979, the company was joined by Pierre Rossi, Lambert Schroeder’s grandson and current director of Schroeder Jewelry. Under his leadership, Schroeder jewelry expanded internationally by deploying to various markets and participating in various exhibitions and fairs on five continents.
The family tradition continues, so that at the head of the Schroeder jewelry company, in addition to Mr. Pierre Rossi and his wife, their daughters Anni and Sophie were also involved in making business decisions. This fifth generation continues the family tradition that is associated with traditional approach, knowledge and creativity.
