Maison Martin Margiela pea coat vs Uniqlo pea coat - which one would you go for?


Plenty of pea coats in the shops right now, so here's a high-end one and a budget one - but which one is worth the money?

The Maison Martin Margiela pea coat (left) is in navy, with gold buttons, high-fastening, double-breasted front, vertical pockets and composed of 75% wool and 25% nylon. In contrast, the Uniqlo pea coat is available in black or navy, with broad lapels, double-breasted front, slanted pockets and large plastic buttons.

And there's one other key difference - the  Maison Martin Margiela pea coat retails for £505, while the Uniqlo pea coat sells for £69.99. With that in mind, which one would you go for?

If I had the money I would go for the Margiela hands down. The cut is so much better and the vertical pockets are a winner. The Uniqlo one looks a bit like a bad version of a donkey jacket. If I didn't have the money then I would go without!
