I didn't because of trends, and I don't stop because of them either.  

I've had my leather trench for 12 years and I wanted one for longer than that. I bought it in high school. I love how it billows, and every year I look for the seasons that are just the right temperature for it. However this season is being annoying. I am not in the Matrix and I am not copying Spike. It is no one person saying it, and I'm not annoyed at my friends that have mentioned the resemblence, but I would like to avoid as many further mentions, since the accumulation is getting tiresome and at this point I can't remember who I've explained that my coat was bought well before either reference.

Hm... now I sound more annoyed than I really am. I made an icon, but the problem is that coats are long and thin and make poor 100x100 images. So I'll not added it to the rotation and instead say, look! it's a little black blob that kind of resembles me and my coat:

Hm... this maybe one of those posts I shouldn't post while tired, sick and having had alcohol.

hmm. I've only had mine for ~4 years. But I had been searching for the right one for at least 4 prior to that. Noone has ever accused me of trying to imitate Spike or Morpheus though...

Such a coat on either you or Cat strikes me as more "you" than any media figure. I think part of it is that people who are copying a media figure tend to copy other attributes (e.g. sun glasses, style of walk) that makes the copying apparent.

my trench of 8 years was lost during the winter when my car was stolen from the train station parking lot.

I honestly miss the coat more than the car.
