    Sort of a weird question, but does clothing come with any sort of warranty or repair option by manufacturer?

    I bought a Junya winter coat a couple seasons ago ('11 maybe?) from Barneys. Because its a heavy winter coat, I barely wore it since I live in San Francisco. It's probably been worn 10 times max over the past four years.

    While cleaning out my closet today, noticed that one of the toggles had been cut through by the very string that was holding it in place! Seems like a manufacturer defect. Either way, this shouldn't have happened after 10 or so wears.

    What are my options? What do other people do when they discover defects/issues after the fact with expensive clothes?

    Depends on the generosity of the brand or, failing that, the relevant contract/sale of goods law that applies to the vendor...
