need some help/advice for a personal grail I gotr earlier this year.
rescued this vintage Brown's Beach coat at the bins, one of my holy grails to get, but it is in need of some serious repairs. appears something chewed up a pocket, and the collar is in rough shape. does anyone know who might be able to restore this? is it worth it?

You may want to look into having it repaired like Vader recommended, maybe with a company similar to Atelier & Repairs where they repair it and make it something unique.

It may not be your style, but kind of a cool idea if your looking to save it and not have it repaired to original.

Good stuff recently:
Vtg tees:



MJB because she's a Queen. $1:


This suit was part of a fill a bag promo (rare for these parts) so each piece was $2 each. Had to reunite it, too. Also, sold right away for $229 and I probably set the BIN too low:brick:. If you see a $2*, it was from that bag day:




$2* prolly keeping these for me.


$2* each. The epaulet is $old:


NOS tee, maybe $3:

The last all birds I picked up were $10 or 11. I had to talk the CSR down for those as they had no laces. These were complete, better shape, laces...$4.99. Also from GW.


Staple Canali suit ($17)and SC($9):



NOS lee jeans, $5 or $6:


Both already $old. the C Haans were made in the 3rd world but minty. The crocket jones were $11.

I'm thinking a proper color suede over the pockets and collar? It would diminish value as far as a collectable... but would look pretty nice if you just wanna wear it?
