As the temperature rises, and the weather forecast milder, it doesn’t mean you have to store away your favourite gabardine for another six months. Burberry has recently reintroduced their tropical gabardine, made especially for these warmer climates.
Woven at the Burberry mill, what was once a revolutionary rain wear invented by Thomas Burberry in 1879, today uses many of the traditional techniques that set the material apart from other waterproof fabrics, with new and modern finishing processes that make it more water-repellent than ever before.
Compared to its toastier counterparts, the tropical gabardine is made of gossamer threads of ultra lightweight protection in milder weather, ensuring the fabric’s breathability when the temperature rises, while maintaining its durability.
The tropical gabardine trench coats are available in a selection of styles such as oversized storm shield detailing, exaggerated cuffs and car coat silhouettes, as well as an iridescent palette revisiting the soft tonic tones found in the Burberry Heritage Archive – storm blue, canvas blue, bright olive, light taupe and antique taupe pink.
