Default Re: Remove shine from your Prince Chas lapels

This may not be the same issue, but I thought I'd mention - I've had issues with satin lapels discoloring as they age, especially with all the sunlight exposure while performing. I'd looked for solutions (replacement/repair) but didn't find any worthwhile.

So when I decided to buy another Prince Charlie, I talked to our Scottish Treasures folks and they suggested getting a jacket with Barathea (cloth) lapels, the same fabric as is used for the jacket. I did, it looks just great, and it's not discoloring with all the playing I do outside. I'm happy with this solution, but it is a bit pricey to have to replace the jacket.
