Model Answer:
I have recently bought a trench coat known as Maison Margiela form a branded shop in Berlin, Germany. This is a gorgeous coat and comes in the latest fashion and style. The coat has some special features and fastening capacities. I would like to thank you for this nice cue card topic and would further describe why I have purchased it, how much it has cost me and my feelings regarding my purchase of this coat.

I bought the coat from Harvey Nichols – a renowned clothing brand across the country. It took 1000 euros – a bit expensive for a student like me but I could not resist owning the coat because of its amazing look and feel. I planned that I will adjust a few other costs next month to cover it.

I bought the trench coat considering the comfort it offers and the cold winter during the winter. It is fashionable and the special cuts on the coat body are very attractive. The coat comes with stone cut double-breasted buttons on the front side. The belt that I use to fasten it is detachable. The fabric is made of pure cotton and it comes with the dry cleaning facility.

After purchasing the coat, I had a mixture of feelings. First of all, I felt a deep sense of satisfaction to have the coat. But when I considered the price, it appeared that I spent exorbitantly. I have spent almost all the pocket money on the coat. However, I am happy to have a dazzling trench coat like this one.
