1 BURBERRY TRENCH COAT
Year Invented: 1901
The Burberry trench coat is a staple of everyday attire. It was originally developed as an alternative to the heavy coats worn by British and French soldiers in World War I. The garment was an optional part of the uniform for officers, but it was not permitted to be worn by any other rank. Because of their original role as a staple for military officers, the trench coat gained respectability as businesswear.
2 WEBER GRILL
Year Invented: 1950
Designer: George A. Stephen
George Stephen worked for Weber Brothers Metal Works, a metal fabricator that primarily made buoys. Stephens was frustrated with his open-brick grill, because he felt that it produced uneven heat and too much smoke. The open top also allowed too much wind to blow ashes into his food. So Stephen took half of a buoy and welded three steel legs onto it. This marked the beginning of the Weber-Stephen Products Co. and one of the most iconic cooking objects to date.
3 RECORD PLAYER
Year Invented: 1877
Designer: Thomas Edison
In 1877, Thomas Edison invented the the phonograph, the ancient cousin of the record player, capable of both recording and reproducing sound. The record player is now an iconic object perfect for a gentleman living room. I suggest you to find out the beautiful models available on Urban Outfitters!
