How To Care For Your Burberry Coat
We recommend taking your Burberry coat to be professionally dry cleaned. Before bringing your coat to the dry cleaner, be sure to check the care label for any special instructions. After dry cleaning, make sure your coat is reproofed by a specialist, this keeps the material’s water-repellent properties in tact. If your coat has leather or fur trim, ask your tailor for their recommendation on how to care for it properly.
Washing the brand’s coats yourself is not advised.

- Is the Burberry Trench Coat waterproof?
No, Burberry trench coats are not waterproof. However, they are weatherproof, which means that they protect the wearer from the rain thanks to an innovative water-repellent cotton gabardine created by Thomas Burberry in 1879 that successfully blocks the rain from seeping into the fabric. After you dry clean your Burberry coat, it is important you make sure it gets reproofed to maintain this special quality.
