Dyeing Poplin Type Fabric

I have a light-weight summer sport coat that looks to be of a poplin type fabric. It’s a light tan with a very shiny surface. I’d like to have it dyed to a darker color and get rid of the shine. I don’t know the composition of fabric. Is there a way to do this? Who would I take it to? What would I ask for?

Dear Jim: Time to replace your sport jacket. The shine will never disappear no matter what you do. The amount of time and money to dye the jacket will be more than replacing it. For fun, visit www.ritdye.com. Good Luck, Andy
