It’s a timeless piece. It’s a one-time investment


All I needed for convincing - done


Good investment but also consider something a little unconventional. I bought a secondhand but unused handmade Japanese black trench coat with an asymmetrical zipper and belt. Apparently cost $2,000 new and I got it for $240 on eBay. Get lots of compliments.


It’s ok. Maybe just keep the check print on the inside and stick with a solid color


My wife got on from the Burberry outlet for like $700


It may be timeless, but it can also look creepy or old fashioned. Try it on first.


Go for it. I wouldn’t get the flashy print on outside if being used for work / everyday jacket

Doooooo it!

If you can afford it with no debt, go for it. You’ll be able to keep it for the long run and pass it on to your kids at some point. Rímelas piece.

Good Burberry trench recs for a dude? Looking for something shorter

Anyone else ever told that you go “too above and beyond” for your customers? For example, I deal with a lot of returns and repairs and sometimes customers don’t have their order information. I offer to help them find it with just some supplemental info. Could take anywhere from an extra 5 to 25 min of digging, depending on what info they can provide. Direct manager? Doesn’t care. Her boss however, made that comment this morning when asked about my daily productivity.
