SPLURGE - A.P.C. Navy Trench - $490
In honor of the rainy New York weather, I think it's only fitting that I post the perfect trench. While no one can outdo Burberry, most people don't have 1000 large to drop, so while this will be considered a splurge, it is certainly NOT in comparison.
A.P.C. is a french brand based in Paris that is known the world over for their amazing denim, but it is their trench coat that really impressed me when I first discovered their store on Mercer St. in Soho. The trench is heavy enough to beat the wind, yet not so overbearing that it can't be worn around with a pair of shorts in the summer. While the price tag may seem a little daunting, it is truly the definition of an investment piece that, if bought in the appropriate size (not to small that is), can last you for years. Check out the trench here. Splurge.
