Another note - you must use distilled water in jiffy steamers and rinse them out once in a while. Still - we steamed wedding gowns all day 6 days a week and no problems for 3 years.

I can't find another double breasted camel-colored coat in the price range, either =/ Does it look like a tailor would be able to remove these epaulets without damaging the coat? Very easy to do! However my concern would be if the fabric under the epaulets...
