I have a pair of suede AEs where the suede has cracked, for lack of a better term, at the stress points on each shoe. Because of the crack I can see through to what I believe is the sock liner. I am going to take them to my shoe guy to see if he can fix them, but anyone have suggestions on how to avoid this problem in the future. This isn't my first pair of suede shoes, but it is the first time this has ever happened.
Thank you so much. I used Angelus dye. What am I looking for on the bottle that lets me know which solvent to use?Also, a little bit of color comes off each time they rubbed or used. Anyone have any suggestions on how to make them colorfast? Do I just need to give them more drying time? Will the waterproofing spray help the issue?
I just dyed a pair of suede shoes navy blue. I love the look but some of the dye got past the painter's tape that I put around the edge of the rubber sole and stained it in a couple places. I am afraid I already know the answer, but does anyone have any suggestions on cleaning the dye off of the rubber sole? Can I maybe sand it out?
How does one order a jacket? I received a quote on the price but I don't know how to go about paying for it through the ordering process.
Hopefully this is the right thread for this question. I just re-dyed some suede shoes. Any suggestions on how to keep the color from fainting rubbing off on things that contact the shoes?
Is 8 oz linen heavy enough to use in the making of an unstructured jacket? I won't have any padding or lining.
Is 8oz linen heavy enough to use in the making of an unstructured jacket?
I am thinking about having a super casual suit made. I have what amounts to a shirt jacket, which has no lining or canvassing of any sort, that I will send in for copying, and I would have pants made to match. The problem I have is that I have no idea which linen will suit this project. I would very much like to use the Linen Indigo. That fabric is listed at 8oz. Is that heavy enough to make an unstructured jacket and pants? If not, can someone suggest a weight that would...
I emailed them about this and yes you can still ship to Portland if you prefer. I gather that THEY prefer that you ship to India, so that is what I am doing.
I have had to resort to MTM and would suggest the same to you. If you don't want to go that route, you might want to take a look at the Washington fit (long) at Suit Supply. They ship right to your house and the return shipping, if it doesn't work, is totally free of cost or hassle.
