Over the years I faithfully wore it into the ground. So much so, that by this fall the lining looked like spaghetti squash.
Rather than purchase a new coat of a similar quality that could have run close to $300+, I decided to buy some new lining and bring this guy back to life for $120.
I picked a bright fuchsia lining at the fabric store and brought it to my trusty dry cleaner/tailor extraordinaire for re-lining, dry cleaning, and pocket repair.
It’s kinda like a mullet coat – in a good way. Business on the outside, margarita night on the inside.
After completing this project, I highly recommend re-lining an old, high-quality coat. But be sure to give the project to someone you trust to do a good job with the repairs.
And remember, you can always have a little fun with the color!
