http://us.burberry.com/product/index...uctId=10797952 Anyone else see this? I like it, as I'm always a fan of punk/corporate mixes. But at the same time it looks a bit try-hard. And is there anything less punk than Burberry.... It looks better in the stormy weather video Burberry has, but anything looks good on a model. I'm not sure how it would go over on a guy like me. (Young, but no model) Anyone have any thoughts on it?

At best I think you'd wear it a couple of times and feel awesome and then realize you spent two grand on a trench coat that is going to look ridiculous to you in 12 months, max, and already does to 95% of the population. EDIT: and even if you really do profoundly like the look, I bet it's at least a little annoying having all that weighty metal on the collar. I have a pair of Dolce tux pants with zippers at the bottom outseams and it's really nice hardwear but it weighs enough to ruin the drape of the pants so I'm planning to have a tailor take out the zippers and just sew the legs into place as normal. Just a guess but all those collar studs might interfere with regular things you do with your collar, hooded garments underneath, etc. On a vaguely related note, Versace FW10 had a pretty crazy punkish studded trench. (I'm not recommending it I just think it looks cool.)

You can pull it off if you have the right attitude.

I used to wear some studded clothing. Jackets for the most part. I may buy a 2nd hand trench and place some studs in it. (More sticking with DIY punk ethos anyway....)

I own a Burberry trench, and love the quality, so it'd be interesting to see how nice this one is.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
