    Is Burberry worth the money?

    short mackintosh coats will almost always make you look like a potato. I like belted trenches because they at least have some shape while being protective in the rain. I have no idea if Burberry is worth the money.

    Seems like you really want it...

    If it's "worth" the money. I would say in general no for Burberry, as in they'll have a pretty high markup compared to their production cost and it's a common design. But really, that shouldn't affect your decision too much if that coat is going to make you happy.

    Not really. Not a fan of this style in black... only posted this in hopes that someone would post a far cheaper alternative (the coat pictured retails for $1,600).

    That said, why all the Burberry hate?

    ^^ I'd kill for that CN leather in size 48. Still toying with the idea to order the 46 in the hope that it runs big, or the 50 in the hope that it runs small...

    Not a fan of those Acne's, though. If you want a pair of coated Acnes go with the 'Max' or 'Roc' cut instead... ( unless you're chubby of course )

    Do straight fit waxed denim not look good? I've tried on the nudie thin finns in waxed black denim and they looked pretty comical on me for being so tight. I actually have really skinny legs, which is why the thin finns looked funny b/c it looked like i was wearing jeggings.

    Edit: by the way, the CN jacket is availabe in a 38 on the CN website.

    i like the higher rise on these..and they seem less tight in the thighs.

    also if it works out i could get the same pair in a diff colour (dark grey)

    You must have a PACKED wardrobe. Why don't you play around with what you have for a while?
