Edit: After poking around I found the Culinary Classics website. Seem like very nice coats but $$$! Will invest and write it up for others looking for a fancy coat.

I believe that the gear is part of the job. If looking good is important, then it may be better to invest in something more superficial, at a lower cost. If your concern is over protection then you pay more for it, but you have to live with the idea that it's going to take some damage over time.
Peter, are you arguing that in ScottyBoy's position you don't think he should be worried about how his coat looks?
Generally, given the above conditions, if appearance is important, than you're better off to buy cheap and disposable, and give yourself that "just pressed look". If you want the battle-hardened look, then you invest in something to keep ( but it may not be cost effective).
I've found that, over time. it's better not to get attached to equipment. It's cheaper that way.
Cheap is good.

Cheap coats are cheap, best used for "messy days" when you know you'll be getting dirty.
