Another question: My overcoat is waaaay too long. Ankle length to be exact. I, too, have been toying with the idea of getting it tailored, but have hesitated. Can it be shortened and if so, what's the suggested amount. It's a beautiful cashmere winter overcoat. My camera broke this summer so no pics yet, but I'm working on it.
I just dropped off my cashmere overcoat yesterday to have the exact same thing done. It was mid shin length coat, and I am having my tailor shorten it to just above the knee. It's costing me $55 if you were curious. I will let you know the results.
