Rock & Republic 'Bogart' Coat

From a reputation forged on the battlefield, the trench coat has found itself taken up by all manner of heroes -- from the many characters in Frank Miller's Sin City to Mulder & Scully in The X Files; from the stars of The Matrix to The Pink Panther. In particular, Humphrey Bogart became associated with the trench, which he wore in a number of films, none more famously than Casablanca (1942). This swanky, beautifully detailed coat with a slimming cut from Rock & Republic may be a different beast than the traditional trench, but it's definitely a timeless key piece for a stylish tough guy's wardrobe, with the ability to take one from season to season.
