Influencers all over Instagram have been spotted in the £75 Burberry-esque number, weathering the various storms of the great British seasons in style and cementing the fact that it’s never been so hip to be square – when it comes to your prints, at least.
The trench combines classic beige with gingham black and brown check; a perfect neutral colour palette that, combined with its comfortable silhouette and reasonable price tag, makes it a winner in almost everyone’s book.
But therein lies the problem: as is all too often the case with a popular statement buy, ASOS’s original coat is now out of stock in almost every size on the site, and there’s no word yet as to whether it’ll be coming back.
Short of keeping the page bookmarked and refreshing regularly in the hopes of a return, there’s not much you can do about the sellout; but if you had your heart set on a checked trench coat to see you through the chillier weather, all is certainly not lost.
There are still plenty of gorgeous options on the high street that haven’t yet flown off the rails, both in all-over check or with ASOS-style splicing, and you don’t have to break the bank to get the look either.
Here are nine of our favourites so far, starting from just £25.
