Mine has a zip-out lining, so I suspect the cost and effort may be more than expected. Has anyone tried this and what were the results?
we are taking trench coat here not over coat.
I found a beautiful Aquascutum 100% coton trench coat in a gold bronze color that was simply spectacular. Unfortunately it was an ample 46 and I am a thin waisted 36. But it was almost 2/3 off, basically a steal. So I took to my favorite tailor and asked if he could reduce it by 10 sizes. He said he could and proceeded to mark it. A month later I tried it on and it was perfect. The tailor basically recut almost everything and all for $200:D.
It turned out so good that I bought a second identical trench coat which was the last remaining.
