    sorry for starting a new thread but I posted in the pea coat section and no one answered...I also searched and didn't come upon nething so i made an effort.

    I was at barneys the other day looking to buy a pair of dior raws. jeans were sweet but IMO they were not 200$ nicer than A.P.C so i decided to opt out. The sales person handed me a Dior toggle pea coat to try on. this was the first real high end pea coat ive seen and I thought the quality was beyond nice..it was extremely comfortable and was one of the first coats that fit me perfectly (im 6'4 and around 155 pounds so skinny). I'm wondering if the 1800 dollar price tag is because of the name or if its 1800$ quality and If the price is that high because of the name what other companies have similar quality pieces for less price.

    thanks

    I have money to spend on a winter jacket but 1800 is really steep...i would wait for it to drop. I dont have any experience with other brand pea coats so Im wondering if the quality is reall worth it

    If you spend that much on a peacoat (which is probably marked up by 1000% easy), you might as well get a custom peacoat, such as one from ToJ. At least then you'd be getting your moneys worth with all the effort and custom fitting that will go into it.

    I didnt buy it but Im saying it was the nicest pea coat ive seen. I understand theres a major markup so im wondering what brands are worth it?

    Ive read of about TOJ but I cant find a retail store that carries them.

    Why not?

    Are you talking about the hooded toggle jacket? That piece is sick. I would have no problem dropping $1800 for it if I wasn't broke.

    Okay a couple things then.

    1. It's not a peacoat at all...Visually, I think it's a lot more interesting of a piece than a peacoat.
    2. You're pretty well built for fashiony type clothing...maybe a little too tall but brands like dior are geared towards skinny people.
    3. Yes they are. I hope to see them live one day.

    if you really love it and will wear the hell out of it then it will be worth it. Yes, it would be great if it were on sale, but often sales are too late (i.e., you miss key time) or they're on sale for a reason (i.e., doesn't fit quite right, or some other issue). Many SFers distort the process with too much emphasis on sales or illusory bargains.

    I don't get why people have this belief that if you spend a ton of money on an item of clothing you are obligated to "wear the hell out of it." It kind of cheapens the experience of wearing awesome clothes if you're putting it on everyday.
