Fashion Math: Is A Burberry Trench Worth Giving Your Budget the Cold Shoulder?

December 17, 2009 by Jeanine Edwards

Burberry is famous for their iconic trench-style coats, and this wool cashmere trench coat is perfect for the frigid season. It also happens to be $795, which is more than you would spend on seven iPod Nanos. Yikes! We love a great coat, but that’s expensive. The good news is that it’s also worth it (and we’re not just saying that because we just came in from outside). Let’s do the Fashion Math:

So if you make this seriously classic camel trench your go-to winter coat for the next five years-wear it every December through March until 2014-you’ll only have spent a little over $1 to fashionably keep the cold out. After the five year mark, continue wearing it (yes, it will still be wearable) or pass it along to friend for even more savings.
