That's bad fusing ... which can be exacerbated by a dry cleaner running their pressing bucks too hot - which many do. Turn the collar over. Heat your iron to the hottest setting. Have a friend stretch the collar band flat and as taut as possible on the ironing table and hold it in that position. Sit the iron on the underside of the collar where the bubbling is until it is very hot - about 60-70 seconds. Press down on the iron with all of your might and hold for 20-30...

(But I won't object if you leave Astoria at home).

I didn't get one yet No. Nobody whose name is not on the guest list will be admitted as we are bound by the suite's occupancy limits. Though some time slots are full, others are not ... yet. You can still get an invitation at www.SartorialExcellence.net. The dress code is not "no jeans". I'll restate it: "No jeans, flip-flops, and t-shirts." Unless...
