Hello everyone. I am new to the forum but wanted to get your opinion on this.

I am looking to purchase a gift for a good friend and have narrowed the choice down to two items: Burberry Kensington mid-length trench or Louis Vuitton Keepall 55 Damier Graphite. I know that he would use and appreciate either item and the price is basically the same so that is not a factor.

The Burberry trench can be a staple in his wardrobe and I the mid-length was chosen because he is on the short side and I would not want it to look like he was wearing his father's clothes.

With the Keepall, he travels several times a year and this would work not only as a carry on for flights, but would also work on a night or two getaway.

I see both of these items working well for him. Please give me your thoughts and opinions, or other suggestions.

Thanks!

I think the Burberry Trench is an excellent gift. You could also look at Mackintosh trench coats, which are priced similarly.

Regarding bags: For $1,800 you could get him a handcrafted travel bag made of real leather. It would be of higher quality than the LV canvas bag. Perhaps something from Frank Clegg, such as this Private Jet Bag:
