I have several HB items but only one topcoat. This topcoat is 100% cashmere and is the only item I have ever paid more than 50% off. I knowingly bought it at the worst possible time (during fall) as I couldn't find any nicely fitted RTW 100% cashmere coats cheaper. I certainly paid far too much for it but I take solice in that I never saw it on sale anywhere after even at the end of the season. It is a very nice cashmere and I recieve many compliments when I wear it.
OK thanks guys

You might have visited another shop instead (Via Uomo?). Yes, a distinct possibility. I know there are 3 or 4 shops on that side of peel and some use the term "Uomo" This could be my chance to try on the 888 last to see how a G&G would fit. Do you gentlemen think that would be completely...

Quote: Originally Posted by onix Where do you live? Do you understand that dry cleaning = using extremely active chemical solvent? And compared to this, those "mineral contents" you talked about is pretty much nothing? The mineral content in city water can include Calcium, Iron, Manganese which when dry act like abrassives. This will definitely abraid the cloth fibers and shorten the lifespan in areas such as where I live (very hard...
Fellow Canuck here and everyone is right. (actually Canada sucks in many other areas as well) Always always try to use any countries government run post service and avoid UPS like the plague. UPS will absolutely make sure you pay the most taxes and duties as well as thier ridiculous brokerage service. UPS = U Pay Us BIGTIME. I have always had good luck with stuff coming from UK in terms of shipping and no duty. It really helps if the shipper is willing to help you...
