I have always had the best luck with OxiClean products. Most recently been using their gel stick, rub it on a stain 15mins before throwing the garment in the washing machine. Has worked on everything I have tried it on (blood, vinaigrette salad dressing, red wine).
My BBBF OCBDs have shrunk in same manner as my regular BB OCBDs. In my experience all BB OC shirts (both regular and BF) tend to shrink more than shirts made of non-oxford material...but even then, they don't shrink by enough for me to size down.

Having just looked into this, I think the consensus is around .25 is the max you should shorten at a cuff if there is currently the standard 1.5 of space from the last button to the cuff.
To be honest, I am not sure who is at fault with the sleeve length issue. I had to rush out of my last fitting to get somewhere and I clearly overlooked the sleeve length when picking up the suit. That being said, there is no way, I would have been fine with such long sleeves during the fitting. Regardless, my tailor is awesome, I just stopped by his shop and he offered to bring the sleeves up at the shoulder for free. Having used him for a number of flawless jobs in the...

Yes it is expensive $100-$150 depending upon where you and for the best in town tailor. I'm sure you can find someone who will do it cheaper but I would pay more with the tailor with the best rep. Is that a per-sleeve or total price estimate?

no need for another of these threads his casual looks are often ok in my opinion, i have never really cared for his suits/ties
I cant't stand not seeing any of my shirt sleeve when wearing a suit. Right now my suit sleeves are just a tad bit too long. I know that having working button holes really limits what you can do regarding sleeve length, but is there any way to decrease the sleeve length, even slightly, without messing with the shoulder? I am hoping for maybe a little more than 1/4th of an inch. I am apprehensive to have my long time tailor mess with the shoulders on this suit. My...
