Quote: You could just take off the remaining one .... Would be better than putting one on that doesn't match The trouble is that the coat has the sort of sleeves that run all the way through up to the collar (there's no shoulder seam like on a suit jacket). When I take the orphaned epaulette off, the shoulders look a bit saggy -- so I'd rather have two that matched each other, even if they didn't match the coat exactly, if you see what I mean. I...
So I got an almost perfect Burberry trenchcoat from a charity shop. It's one of the old ones from when they were still called "Burberry's", it fits well and it cost me a mere $25 (CDN) The problem?

(prices in $CAD w/ tax included) Jeans/Pants: $100-150 Casual/Dress Shirt: $75-125 T-shirts: $20-30 Long Sleeve T-shirts: $50-75 Shoes: $150-275 Sweater: $75-150 Spending anything above those prices would be considered a luxury for me and I couldn't really justify it, at least not at the present time. In Toronto, if you want to go top-end for jeans, try a store called Over The Rainbow...
