    I normally wear a 38 in a suit jacket and expected this peacoat to need to be sized down. I tried on a size small and was surprised to find it too tight. The fit seemed to be much trimmer than on a more traditional peacoat. I ended up ordering one in a size medium. By the way, there's a 30% off coupon code for Polo.com -- HOL2006.

    Yeah, it was the regular Polo one, not Purple Label. I hope they work for us both.

    I ordered a medium too, if it doesn't fit I'll just exchange it for a small...

    I'm so sorry . . . burns are often a lost cause. Sometimes fabric can be re-woven, or set into the burn, but that takes skill and patience. This once happened to my mother, dozens of years ago, at a sixties cocktail party. There was a crush; someone got too close. End of brocade cocktail dress.

    ouch man! this is why you can never treat clothes like they're an 'investment' as you so often hear. Too many variables in life that will fuck your shit up thru no fault of your own

    Just write it off as something that 'adds character'.

    Just say it's "distressed" and pretend you bought it that way.

    Except when it does, like almost always.

    I had this happen to a charcoal wool coat of mine. My fix wasn't perfect, but it helped lighten up the burn spots from black to charcoal.

    Take a fabric brush and comb out the ash, if there's any left on the jacket. Then dab out the rest with some water or something, let it dry, and comb it again. Then if the coat is navy, charcoal, or lighter, take some dark women's powder makeup and use it to dust the burn spot. Apply and comb to match. Unorthodox, yes, but it mostly worked.

    exactly. If your peacoat is such that it can't have a burn or two, you are wearing it too poncey to begin with.

    I got the medium and it was too big for me. I'm exchanging it for a small.
