You can find very cool trenches all the time at thrift and Sal Army stores for a few bucks and not feel any guilt about experimenting on a new spendy coat. Some time they are missing their belts which gives you even more things to play with---scarves; leather sashes. mens belts--ribbons---you name it.

Tan trench with studded out wide black leather sash---mmmmmmmm...I even have a black leather trench I have been thinking about doing something with if I don't hack it up into a pair of chaps and a vest---cost a whopping $3 at Sal Army 1/2 price day---couldn't buy one tiny scrap of leather for that!!!!
