The difference in price between this Steal and the Real is drastic, yet there is very little difference in style. With that said, can we all agree that the Steal is way better? The Real is a Steffen Schraut Navy Trench and may be found at for $345! The Steal is from Forever 21 and retails for only $34.80, for a difference of $310 from the Real!

I prefer the Forever 21 trench because the material is thicker than the Steffen Schraut, which gives it amazing form. I also love the tie belt over the buckled. I can’t believe the quality of clothing that I have seen from Forever 21 lately! They have really stepped it up from the days when they sold apparel with super thin material and unfinished hems. Look slimming and stylish in their knit trench coat featuring a removable self-tie belt and belt loops. It is further styled with 5-rows of double-breasted buttons, 2-front pockets, buckled arm cuffs, smooth woven lining, and a finished hem.

  1. I prefer the “steal” more than the “real,” it just looks sturdier and I love the buttons and cuff detail.

    I prefer the “steal” too! It has a better shape than the “real” which kind of just looks crumpled. Doesn’t hurt that it’s $310 cheaper!
