I recently bought a navy Burberrys' trench coat from the 80s and I love it!
The problem is that it reaches to about mid-calf which is a bit too long for my liking, especially considering I'm not all that tall at 5'9".
It's also a bit baggy around the midsection which is to be expected with a traditional design.
I'm considering having about 10-15cm taken off at the bottom and maybe have it taken in at the same time, if this is at all possible.
So that leaves me wondering, is this feasible? Would I need to seek out a special tailor to do the job and would it possibly ruin the coat?
I expect I'll have to have it reproofed, since the side seems would have to be undone.
Any suggestions or ideas are welcome
