so the one tie I had that needed some serious help, a Canali thick woven silk job, I couldn't get the wrinkles out despite the ideas posted here. Light ironing, heavy steaming...lots of long hanging...would not fix. Rethrifted. The other tie with a couple weird creases at the point, a Bloomingdalies printed silk...good to go Lesson: Bad wrinkles: Don't bother. Not so bad? take your shot.

I don't ever see suits, but maybe that's just because I haven't been looking. It's always nasty (formerly) white shirts, threadbare, made of more plastic than a coke 2 liter. I'll keep my eyes peeled, but I have to say I'm not sanguine, heh!PS: Can you post/point me to a couple images of good examples of rocker style suits? Used to be a rock writer (it doesn't pay the bills when you have kids and a mortgage so you have to grow out of it at some point...but you forever...
I know this was posted a while back.Every time I see Stafford now, I laugh. But I'd also like to add...Towncraft. Towncraft.Where's all this Club Room riffraff coming from? Macy's, I think. And Croft & Barrow...
