Gothic Trench Coats
Gothic Trench Coats Work for Men and Women
Similar to Gothic shoes and boots, Gothic trench coats work on both men and women, and keep both masculinity and femininity intact.
Trench coats have been a key part of Gothic fashion for a long time, but the Matrix films brought them out of the Gothic subculture more into the mainstream; although much of Gothic fashion has been moving in that direction as well.
Some of the more popular Gothic trench coats are made from either leather or PVC, and both styles work and look great.
It's interesting the way a trench coat isn't a trench coat, as when you look at the western or cowboy style trench coat, the difference is really easy to see, but still, they're trench coats.
I do like how Gothic fashion allows men and women to wear similar styles and yet not embrace the unisex or metrosexual look.
Each bears up well with the trench coat, and still look like men and women.

Gothic Trench Coat
While this Gothic trench coat is called a bondage trench coat to generate interest and curiosity, other than the chains there's really no connection; but the implication is definitely there from the style.

Poly Cotton Gothic Trench Coat
Here's a Gothic trench coat made of poly cotton, which would obviously be much lighter and easier to wear in the heat, where many Goths refuse to compromise with their chosen attire, and would rather swelter and sweat than wear something they feel would compromise who they are.
This coat would make it a little easier to go through the heat and still look good.
