    Which Coat?

    Hi! I'm 18 years old and I'm starting to change my wardrobe into something a little smarter; think Joseph Gordon-Levitt in (500) Days of Summer, but occasionally wearing bright colours. Anyway, at the moment I'm looking around for a winter coat. I'm a starving student, so my budget's pretty low, however I understand the need for quality. I've seen two rather different coats I like, both on quite good reductions, and I'm having a hard time deciding between the two of them.

    The first one is from All Saints:


    And the second one is from Austin Reed:

    (apologies for the small photo, this is the link to see it on the website: AR RED Navy Trench Coat - Casual Coats - Austin Reed)

    Any input would be greatly appreciated!

    Much prefer the 1st one - The belt on the 2nd makes it look like a bit like a bath robe imo

    The All Saints one will be much more durable and versatile, and is just generally nicer.

    The AR one isn't so much of a warm winter coat, I'd go with the All Saints one.

    I got it from eBay, someone was selling it new with tags for quite cheap. They've called it a 'Herz Pea Coat' but I just did a quick search on eBay and there doesn't seem to be any others on there.
