Cleaning and restoring your classic trench coats

Trench top rightThe Wall Street Journal had an interesting article in the Off Duty section of their February 26, 2011 edition entitled "The Trench Gets a 'Nightlife'."

The article focused on designers who are coupling this iconic coat with semi-formal blouses, skirts and dresses, to create an entirely new look.

Whether it's a classic Burberry, Acquascutum or Ralph Lauren trench coat, we can restore it to "like new" condition - expertly and safely.

Take, for example, this classic Yves Saint Laurent cotton and silk trench coat.

When it came to us, it had been through the wars - a two week trip to Chicago in January. Apart from the dingy color, it exhibited multiple stains: oil from the back of the neck, lipstick, coffee, grease and old yellow spots.

We told our client that it would probably take a week to complete the restoration. The results were, hopefully, worth the wait.
