The perfect trenchcoat
I have my eyes set on a trenchcoat. Although I’ve mentioned before that I think investing in a proper coat or jacket for Spring is a waste of money when living in Northern-Europe, but now comes the time that I’ve fallen in love with one. Or multiple ones, should I say. Where this Burberry one will be out of the option for now, I already made my pick for a worthy alternative. Frankly when considering the Burberry trench I comprehend the concept of paying for quality, but no garment made of gabardine should be THAT expensive.
Slightly cheaper (with the difference being more than € 1000, gulp) are the trenchcoats made by A.P.C, such as this model. As I come of as a tad obsessed I really find this the best buy out there. Vanessa Bruno does trenchcoats that are too frilly and not clean enough and I dislike the colour of Comptoir des Cotonniers ‘classic trench.’ Also, I don’t want to buy such a classic and timeless piece at a fast-fashion store as there is always a little detail that puts me off. Alas, I’ve become completely smitten with an item that has run out of stock everywhere – I think A.P.C. discontinued my favourite Rebecca model. So, best thing to do is to lay low until I’ve completely figured out which style is right for me – and my wallet mostly. I will always be a fan of the clear cut of an A.P.C. trench coat, and I am hoping they are releasing a new model anytime soon. Let’s just pray Jean Touitou is reading my blog right now.
Anyway, back on the subject of the trench coat: if you need further convincing, check out the website Art of the Trench, which is created by Burberry to celebrate the timeless style of the trenchcoat.
