Men's trench coats - where should I get one online or Vancouver?

Hi all,

I'm looking for a trench coat for the winter. Preferably something under $300 (not looking for Burberry or anything).

Colour I'm looking for: black, tan, or lightbrown

Any suggestions / places you guys have gone yourselves?

I would suggest navy over black.

Look into Kent Wang. Highly recommended over at styleforum. I have bought a linen pocket square from him before and I can attest he only sells quality pieces. I am actually going to buy his trench coat come March.

They are $350 USD.

Thanks ar2020! I'll look into Kent Wang. I thought about the colour I wanted a bit more and was thinking more of a traditional khaki.

is there one particular colour, between khaki and navy, that coordinates better with more pant colours? Also, do guys actually use the belt, or is it there more for aesthetics (i.e. like the 2nd button on a 2-button blazer)

This one is similar to what the guy in Breakfast at Tiffany's is wearing 'cuz it is not double-breasted:

There is nothing wrong with trying it on, even though it is not on sale yet and doesn't fit your budget.

Khaki goes with more colours because I think wearing navy and black together might not be ideal.

Personally, I think it is a pain to tie the belt after doing up all the buttons. Maybe that's why traditional trench coats aren't as popular these days.

true, khaki > navy > black on the grounds of versatility. I found a nice navy trench at BR, so will probably pull the trigger for a khaki one next year... as much as I want to get both now :)
