You're right. I've been wearing it indoors now for an hour and there is already some graining on sleeves. I thought about deleting the epaulets, as I am not a fan either, but then I decided that this style needs to have them. I feel I made the right decision. I don't understand what you mean by "m(aaaa)any jackets". I have only bare essentials! Or are you saying that one can survive with less than 30 jackets?
