    Two years ago I bought a Peacoat from the GAP (I know, I know...). I really like the coat, because it looks really cool with the collar turned up; a quality most other peacoats don't have, thus I bought one from the GAP. The worst thing about it, is the full boxy cut. I'm wondering if there is a possibility of taking it to a tailor and have the sides taken in for a slimmer fit. Is this even worth it, or do you think it can be done?

    Can it be done? Yes. Is it worth it? Well, it might be an attempt to make a silk purse from a sow's ear, but if you're going to wear it to death after you have it altered, it's a reasonable investment. Better that than having it sit in your closet because you don't really like the way it fits.

    Find a competent tailor and ask for a quote. Then you can decide whether the coat is worth an additional investment of $ xx.
