I had this on one of my jackets, but it has disappeared after the first dry clean. Just don't try anything on your own and do as suggested, give a couple of bucks to a local dry clean lady if she can iron it out on sight.
I've just got an e-mail from the C&J with their new Winter styles, and indeed it appears they have altered even their iconic 314 rounded last the Boston was made on (Hopefully only for this style). It's now designated as the 376 last ..
