A trench that's truly a work of art. Plus, a wrist-friendly hairbrush, a stacked ring, furniture with forties glam...


The Best Bet
There are dozens of indistinguishable classic trench coats—and then there is Thom Browne’s version. The British designer’s knee-length, double-breasted trench takes six weeks to make by hand from waterproof cotton, and its impeccable tailoring is obvious even at a cursory glance—the slim cut, the double vents set on the side seams, the mother-of-pearl buttons resting higher than usual, the striped oxford-cloth lining, and the white cotton piqué undercollar. It’s a work of art, down to its limited edition: Fewer than twenty are for sale in the United States ($3,500 at Bergdorf Goodman Men’s Store, 745 Fifth Ave., at 58th St.; 212-753-7300).
