If you have it, you can. Make sure it is worth it though. By that I mean, shop around & get the best deal. Don't buy something just because you "love" it. Buy it because it's nice & it will look just as good next year as it does this year. Only folks with lots of $$$ can buy many coats year after year. Functional: make sure it is functional, warm, holds up in the weather, and does not have to be dry cleaned. Practical: does it go with everything you have? Or just about everything.
I think it's alright if you're certain you'll be able to wear it a few years. I've also spend pretty much on a new winter coat and it's very comfortable and it fits very well. It's a delight to wear and it's the kind of quality that will last for many years to come.
Personally I don't think I would. It depends on A) why you want it, B) the intensity of the elements you're dealing with and C) whether or not it a legitimate, good quality jacket or something fancy that has a large price because it "can".
It's okay if you have the money, but you should shop around. The Moncler look is often duplicated for under $100. If you want the Monclear name then it is a great deal. I think they look like something the Michelin man would wear, but I am sure some hot model makes them look great. If you are smoking hot and thin and look good in the jacket, then okay. If you are a little round in the middle, hello Michelin girl.
I don't think I ever would tbh. There are plenty of other jackets that can keep me just as warm that don't sacrifice looks whatsoever. Probably the most I would ever spend is $100, and for something like this link . I kind of feel it's just a splurge, but that's just my opinion.
Jackets, bags, sunglasses, and other things you'll wear for a long time and get good use out of are worth the money. I've had a coach bag that's lasted 6 years, it was totally worth the $250. I've had some Chanel sunglasses for about 4 1/2 years, totally worth $300. Both of my winter coat's (one casual one nicer for work and stuff) were about $200, I still have them, totally worth it. It's not worth $200 for a T-shirt or something that you won't use almost everyday.
First off if you have the money, go for it. It better be a good jacket that it costs so much, most of my coats are around $180-200 price range and they are great coats that last me more than a year. But if you won't wear it often don't waste your money on a jacket.
YES! I bought mine two years ago, and it was one of the best decisions (as far as shopping goes) that I have made. If its good quality, it can last a long time, and be a chic staple you can always fall back on.
