1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    Welcome to Styleforum.
    You'll be fine for 10 years. It is short for a traditional length (to or just below the knee) but at your age it won't matter. I don't know this make so cannot comment on quality. Therefore, in that unfamiliarity, I would purchase Burberry at the same price. This may not be a fair assessment. Hopefully others will help....

    I'd agree perhaps a Burberry would provide to be a better value. I have one and it's bulletproof.

    Thank you for the input. The coat is shorter than a traditional trench, probably coming to being above the knee be 5 inches. I ventured into Burberry, and found that the traditional mid-length London line, as well as the Prorsum line, disappointingly all came up much shorter, to around the mid-thigh, making them almost feminine. I did however, notice that Burberry coats contain an extra layer of material over the shoulders to protect the wearer from the elements, rings to prevent the belt from slipping off, and I've read many good things about the repair and customer service. It seems like MMM isn't mentioned much in terms of quality(either good or bad) on the forum. In terms of Burberry, I liked this coat the best, but on my search, it seems hard to find a quality, stylish trench that hangs just above the knee.
