‘INVEST NOW’ Says Gilly Ferguson, editor:
When I say ‘invest now’ I mean start saving now – then buy as soon as you can’t handle forgoing your daily coffee habit any longer. Why? Because this Burberry Brit coat is the sort of hero buy that will never date. The sort of buy to which style sorts will proclaim ‘timeless!’, ‘a classic!’, ‘game-changing!’ and ‘five stars!’
Yes – one-ish grand is a LOT of money. (Yes, I’m in denial and rounding it down already…) And yes, you will break out in guilty shopping sweats for a couple of weeks/months thereafter.
But at a cost-per-wear of approx 0.2p per day for the rest of your life (NB that’s some loose maths right there) it’s very much worth all of the above.
If all else fails, fashion it into a rug and sleep in it too. There are many ways to justify a new season coat and be it Burberry or – more likely – Whistles, I’m a ‘one coat’ sensible sort of shopper. Call it ‘an investment’ and you can explain away anything…
