I think these coats are rather classic tbh, if you get a good quality one it'll last you for quite a while. A lifetime even!

I love these! I'm just not sure if they're that timeless (and if I want to spend so much money on something that'll last one season, because I think they will be quite expensive)

^^^Same. Asos had one in Grazia that was 350!!!! For asos?!?!? They have one on the site for 100 and something, but I think for the 300 mark I want something more classic and wearable.
I do love these though. Hmmmmm.....

I agree that is way too much for ASOS!!!

I really love the trend though, its pretty much my style anyway which I was happy about when I saw them on the catwalk.

They are growing on me now and I really want one, just not as expensive as the ones I have seen around. Hopefully I will just the perfect Aviator jacket though!

I've had one from Topshop for a couple of years! Damn now everyone is going to have one!

I absolutely love it, so comfy and easy to wear, really versatile. I might buy a more expensive one this winter considering I've gotten so much wear out of my old one.

Can't wait for H&M to come out with their version.

I love this trend! It's so practical because it can carry you all through fall. And it looks so cozy!
I think the H&M one is very nice! I hope it's not too cheap-looking in real life. Now the challenge is to find it in store before everyone else snaps it up.

I've had a leather jacket that has influences of an aviator style for many years.

I wear it constantly once Autumn comes around, and into Winter before the weather turns serious and I need a full winter coat. I think it's a really great piece that can be somewhat versatile. I find them super comfy too, and a piece that can work well with a 'layered' look. Mine's just big enough to put a sweater underneath, and still have enough room to move.

They've been fashionable for about 100 years (but way too 'overexposed' this season) so I wouldn't worry about wasting your money

An aviator jacket is an investment piece and timeless classic. My problem is not whether to purchase one, but which to purchase!

Same here. I don't have the money to buy a designer shearling jacket like the burberry one but i don't want a cheap looking faux leather one either. The H&M one looked decent on the pic but it's not available in the stores only online and there it's already sold out.
