While in Toronto this weekend, I picked up a high-twist Armani Collezioni coat for $250 that retailed last season for $2100. The only catch: there are about 12 or 13 very small pulls in the fabric on one of the sleeves. One option is, of course, to leave the coat as is and not to stress about the pulls. Another option would be to ask my tailor whether the fabric can be repaired (I expect that it can, although it may be pricey). Someone once suggested to me that pulls in a tie could be easily eliminated by running a lighter or match over the fabric. Apparently, wool and silk are somewhat resistant to flame. Has anyone ever tried this technique? I'm looking for something tightly-woven that I can experiment on, but I don't really have anything suitable.
