Ankle length trench coats are weather-ready, look professional, and can be a versatile addition to any man's wardrobe. They are a great choice for men who prefer longer lengths for more protective coverage from the elements. However, ankle length styles can be difficult to find if you don't know where to look, since most retailers sell trenches with lengths at mid-calf and above.

Ankle Length Trench Coat Styles for Men

Fashion Long Trench Coat

You can order the Dr. Brown Fashion Long Trench coat in men's sizes small to 2XL from Amazon, and custom sizes are also available. This casual-styled trench is ideal for everyday wear. It comes in a deep tan faux-suede finish with flap-styled pockets and notched lapels. It is doubled breasted and outfitted with marble-colored buttons for added detail. It also has an inner welt pocket, ideal for carrying glasses, a phone, or other small items. The style of this trench resembles the coat worn by the title character from television's Dr. Who.

The overall customer review ratings are very positive, and purchasers speak highly of its great fit, warmth, and the nice look of the fabric and inner silk lining.

Single Breasted Wool Full Length Topcoat

The Cianni Men's Single Breasted Wool Full Length Topcoat is available from Amazon. This coat is black and made from mixed wool/poly blend fabric.

Custom Made Options

Burberry Bespoke Trench

Burberry carries an array of trench coats in varying colors and sizes, but none of their ready-made men's styles are ankle length. However, you can custom order an ankle-length 'Bespoke' coat in the style of your choice.

Visit Burberry's create your own trench coat page to start your custom order. You will need to select your:

  • Style and length
  • Fabric and color
  • Sleeves
  • Lining
  • Collar
  • Buttons and hardware

Commission a Tailor

You may want to consider having a tailor custom-make an ankle length trench coat. A custom-made trench is often more expensive than an off-the-rack coat, but the trade-off could be worth it for a perfectly-fitted trench coat that will give countless wears over the years.
