When is the Next Mr. Porter Sale? - Page 35

post #511 of 600

 

Can anyone comment on what the difference is between these overcoats?  Is the prorsum worth that much more?

The higher price reflects a more expensive brand name as well as cashmere blended with the wool. One is made in Italy (Prorsum) versus the other likely made in China (London), and the Prorsum is presumably made to a higher standard with better construction, finer materials and detailing (e.g. horn buttons instead of plastic), etc.

GT, I think London is mostly made in Romania. Brit is more likely to be made in China.

Burberry London items are made everywhere. Turkey, Romania, Poland, China, Hong Kong, I've seen the odd item made in Bosnia too in the past. 

 

I own a few Burberry Prorsum items, The trench coat below, a few cashmere knits & other pieces all Made in Italy. The quality is amazing, the fabrics, the stitching is the best of the best. Although some of the jeans from the Prorsum line are made in China + Turkey, same with the t shirts.

Regarding the two coats, I actually like the look of the London one better. You will probably find the fabrics and finishing details are the main

differences between the Prorsum. + The London one is likely made in Turkey / Romania. For this particular piece I would settle with the London one.

Got an email saying December 30th. I can only guess that it's going by UK time.

It actually wasn't an email specifically about the sale. It was one of those 'Weekend Guide' emails that had the "Sale starting December 30th" further down in a small tile. I'm not a founding member, though.

I'm a founding member and regular buyer and i didn't get an email either - just saw it on Facebook. So it looks like no advance sale for founding members this year which is quite annoying! Hopefully seeing it's so late they'll just go straight to 50% off not 30% off - here's hoping anyway!

VIP's already had 50% over a month ago. No founders earlybird this year.
