I have been following Burberry coats on eBay for quite a while. This is part necessity – I want and need a nice warm coat that will last – and part curiosity. I don’t particular understand the Burberry brand, you see, and I wanted to see what people would pay lots of money for and if there was indeed anything that made the brand special in my eyes. As it happens, generally I have remained unimpressed. The brand seems largely uninspiring, expensive not for design but mainly just for the sake of being expensive. This is, in my eyes, elitist fashion, and I am happy with high street in comparison for looks and costs.

That said, I love this coat. I think the pattern and colour scheme is unusual enough for it to stand out from a sea of largely khaki trench coats, and with this piece I can see what people love about the Burberry trench. It is just £31, too, which always sweetens the deal!

My mum bought a Burberry trench coat from a vintage shop in Birmingham and it’s the warmest and smartest looking coat she’s ever had. It was a £25 bargain too… do you know Birmingham? I could tell you where it was!

Ooh, what a bargain louise! I am actually just down the road in Leamington, so let me know where it was and I will try and check it out!

Do you know the custard factory? If you walk from the bullring in the direction of the custard factory you will see on your left a big yellow shop. It’s got a huge glass front and you really can’t miss it, that’s the shop. The custard factory also used to have a vintage sale on a Saturday which was pretty good!
