Andrew Garfield was pictured at the Sony Center on 15 April 2014 in Berlin, Germany. The actor is currently in Germany promoting his new film 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Rise Of Electro'. Andrew Garfield wore a classic Burberry trench coat, over a brown / copper coloured suit, white shirt and brown lace-ups.

It is a little "Inspector Garfield is here to examine the crime scene", but you have to agree with me that was a very good look. Love the dark brown hue of the suit, and the cropped trouser length was so on point. The stone / honey coloured trench coat complimented the suit so well, and it kind of pulled the whole look together. The buttoned up white shirt and well polished shoes were the icing on the cake.

Andrew Garfield's Burberry trench coat is such a classic and iconic piece which can be worn across the ages, well worth the investment. He wore the coat over a suit with updated proportions to create a very modern stylish look. Originally created to protect officers from wind and rain, the Burberry trench coat has evolved over 100 years to become an icon. 

Interesting tidbits: the coat was named after the trenches where military personnel were stationed. The coat began as the Burberry Tielocken, patented by Thomas Burberry in 1912. Over the years, the coat was developed to serve the needs of officers in the early 20th century. The design grew in popularity since, and was worn by royalty, film stars and artists all over the world.

At the heart of the Burberry trench coat story is the tightly woven cloth that sets it apart from all others. Invented by Thomas Burberry in 1879, the fabric is called gabardine. Gabardine was made from yarn woven in a compact twill construction with over 100 interlaced threads per centimetre. The microscopic open spaces in the weave allowed ventilation, while the compact structure prevented rain from permeating the fabric. The cloth is triple proofed, creating a lightweight, highly weatherproof and breathable garment. Gabardine is still woven at the Burberry mill in England, alongside new, modern finishing processes.

  1. No tie? Shame on him! Suit without tie = incongruous, sloppy and unfinished.
