Nicholas K.'s take on the classic trench coat gives the iconic outerwear an urban and modern overhaul with a removable rabbit fur hood and zippered vest. The gray hue is a nod to the gray leather jackets of the 80s (which are slated to make a comeback) while the overall styling includes heavy military overtones. After all, the trench coat was born during World War I when Burberry was commissioned by the government to produce a coat for the troops engaged in trench warfare.

What do you think? Is the coat fabulous fashion or a fashion flop?
