Where do I find Trench Coat fabric?

Where do I purchase trench coat fabric for the classic look?
Would you recommend a cotton gabardine or a mix?
Finding quality selvedge denim on ebay is easy but in this case, seaching for cotton gabardine brings about a flood of low price fabrics.
Your help would be highly appriciated!

Holland and Sherry make a series of trenchcoat cottons.

My tailor made me a lightweight raincoat a few years ago in a wool gabardine that's light and strong, I'll have to re ask him what fabric he used.

Thanks for your help!
Film Noir Buff, that is exactly the kind of page I was looking for. I also bookmarked Acorn fabrics that you mentioned earlier. Very nice shirting there, indeed.
However, there is a slight green tone in their "stone solid" trench coat fabric that remind me of either the movie "Match Point" or a french detective in the 70´s. Good connotations indeed but i´m looking for a more beige/camel tone. I been searching ebay further and although the advert itself doesn´t look too sassy, could this be a suitable fabric?

I once owned a TC which I thrifted (Rudolf Beaufays). I looked like a pervert.

I can´t explain how I missed the color Antique Bronze on the Holland & Sherry page. Email sent!

The cotton in that eBay.com link may not be properly treated to act as as a water resistant material.
