A classic trench coat

On the left: double breasted trench coat , on the right: classic double breasted trench

I had some spare time this afternoon, so I wandered into Harrods for some window shopping. I managed to persuade myself that I didn't need another matching set of Calvin Klein underwear, and was smugly leaving the building when I walked by the Burberry concessionaire. On a whim, I tried on the classic double breasted trench (pictured right), and am now in serious love. 

Having always wanted a classic trench coat, am thinking this is probably the best time to buy one, since I actually live in a city that requires some trench coat-wearing. Now that I'm at home, I've been looking through the Burberry website and am completely flummoxed by the variety of choices in trench coats. How on earth does one tell them apart? Case in point with the two coats above, what's the difference?

I can't tell the difference between them. I'm not a fan of trenches either but I got one from Miss Selfridges because I liked the cut. It's a nice fit and it's got an a-line cut to it so it kind of poufs out at the waist.

By the way, I've got beautiful pearl earrings to give away over at my blog. Come check them out :)
