I know there are several threads on this already, but I haven't really been able to find what I'm looking for. I'm looking to buy a trench coat sometime this summer and I really like the Burberry Gabradine coat because its not to long, its thick, which means I could wear it for outwear as well as rain, and I really like the DB belted design. My problem is, being only 20 years old and having a job in the summers, I dont know if I want to spend $1200 on it. I was wondering if any of you could recommend some other trenches that are made from a heavier material, are DB with a belt, and (oddly enough) I need it to have a very strong collar that wont flop around in the wind. Thanks a lot SF.
