I paid $600 + tailoring for one last year.... ended up being $650 or so total.

what's the most you'd drop on a nice jacket/coat.

On this forum you're asking that?

An overcoat will almost outlive most of us. So it's more a question of price/quality then anything else. My last one was €400 on deep discount and I'd happily have paid twice that.

You are referring to overcoats?

My tailor is offering bespoke ones of Loro Piana vicuña cloth for EUR 25,000.-
That is definitively too much for me.

At present I do not like spending too much on these items, as the theft risk is quite big: I mean, this is the kind of stuff that you often leave in the wardrobe in restaurants and clubs, or on the hanger (and you will not sit watching it all night, or?). And, also, overcoats and "overjackets" can take a bit of "beating" in hard winter weather. I only own one overcoat and I think i paid about EUR 300 for it.

That is not my upper limit, though. At present, I guess I could stretch to EUR 1000 for something "very nice". But not much more.

$0.00 I thank my lucky stars I live in a place where I don't need one.

That's what my worry used to be until I saw a Loro Piana storm system coat a few months ago for £500 and thought 'what the hell...'

For a bespoke overcoat, I'd probably expect to spend £2500-3000.
