    Does anyone know where I could procure 8 trench coat buttons in a khaki or beige colour?

    Thanx!!!

    German 30-50's trenchcoat with raglan sleeves and civilian "Ulster" design (no collar hooks, shoulder straps etc.).

    Fawn-sand (no hint of green) gabardine with plaid extra liner.

    I've been following Burberry trenches on ebay for a while now and watched them go for all sort of prices. When one appeared with a buy it now for 25 I jumped on it. It's got a couple of small marks but other than that it's in great condition. The seller thought it was from the 70's but it's a poly/cotton mix so I think it's later. Anyway, I'm happy!

    You did extremely well and I'm envious! That coat fits you superbly well - lots of length but trim around the torso. The poly/cotton blend will resist wear and tear longer and will be more weather repellant. That small tab to close the collar might seem less interesting than the classic ones with the buckle and straps, but the tab is a lot easier to use, especially when it suddenly starts raining and you don't have 5 minutes to fuss with the buckles, etc, before getting wet.

    Yes I'm so lucky, I'd been watching them sell for upwards of 80 for the previous weeks and when I saw it I just went for it! Glad I did as it's a great fit.
    Good advice re the collar tab, I hadn't realised that there is a button to hold it back too to stop it flapping about as well.
    I'm not sure whether to have a go at re-proofing it or to leave it well alone and see how it copes with the best that the north of Englands weather can throw at it! I suppose if it aint broke, don't fix it.
