    Is it worth to you?

    Would you rather have it or £1,395 in your pocket?

    That's a really nice coat, I'd pay $1,000~ for it.

    It's a fine coat, but I wouldn't pay even close to that amount; it's not worth it to ME. Not to mention, it's not going to fit that perfectly on you or I. It's called "editing." Is it worth it TO YOU?

    Before you consider spending the money, pay a visit to the Burberry outlet in Hackney, near Mare Street. Bought my Burberry winter coat 50% off RRP 2 and a half years back.

    Just follow the Japanese and Koreans.

    i don't know your lifestyle, but i've had many experiences where i find something like this that looks so beautiful to me,
    and i buy it and put it on and feel like a boss, but then upon consideration, can't really find a proper situation to where it in.
    then it just kind of lies in my closet for me to wear once a month maybe. if you know you will wear it often (daily for that price), then go ahead! it looks sinfully luscious

    Besides the almost inevitable bad fit of OTR coats (regardless of what the picture shows), the fur makes it a tough sell for my day-to-day life.

    Burberry coats typically have a great OTR fit if you are tall and slim. The problem I sometimes find is that many of the coats dont have room to account for a blazer or suit jacket underneath. Then you have to size up and it may or may not work...
