random fashion thought re: the robert geller thread

what's the idea behind making clothes that run tiny? do you think that's something that's gonna change as people realize that men's fashion is, uh, popular? like, for people who are not model-sized? or am i screwed forever?

What are you looking to wash? I machine wash everything on a handwash cycle or in garment bags, or both, with the exception of suits. It all comes out fine.

Woah interesting. What are some examples of 'dry clean only' stuff you've washed? I've hand-washed sweaters before, but that's about it

Really depends on the fabric. If it's something like cotton or linen, I'll just hand wash it. I dry clean silk and wool though. I just handwashed a pair of co-li devoa pants that were dry clean only today to no ill effect.

I mean, I get that fashion labels are generally intended to be an alternative to clothing that's cut to fit the unwashed masses and found at the same place you buy some turkey and bread, but after finances, I blame the crazy sizing on my diminished interest in a lot of clothing. It's interesting to look at and, I don't know, pine for, but at some point, you'd like to be able to wear some of the stuff. And aside from outerwear and knits, that's just not feasible with a fair amount of the brands we like to talk about (and pine for) around here. Not all people who are interested in fashion have the model build, as you noted.

And it's not even a matter of dropping a ton of weight. Even at my trimmest, I found myself either at the high-end of the size spectrum or sized out entirely for brands such as Geller.

I've not had a problem handwashing wool. Silk is dangerous due to the dyes (plain white silks can wash nicely).

I'm guessing it's because the Japanese tend to buy more of these brands? The only solution is for us to become the larger market so they are forced to cater to our size. I will do my part.

I've done alpaca/cashmere/whatever, washi (paper), raw silk, cashmere blends; everything. This includes stuff like LUC knits and Devoa jackets. Use the right detergent and you're golden.

 

If you've got a decent washing machine, buy a good garment bag and try it out.

 

edit: Also, make sure the water temperature is set to 30C at max.

Fok, there's a super annoying Walmart ad that autoplays a video with audio. Please help!
post #99581 of 109053
I wonder, in general, how much difference small differences (e.g., 10 degrees celsius) in washing temperature between recommended and actual really makes? Ive washed linen pants and OL´s raw silk shirts on 40, while 30 is the recommended. Didn't seem to matter much in those cases (esp. not for the linen). Really dislike to have to save a few fragile items for 30 degrees...

They could at least offer larger size options when they market wholesale and then retailers making their buys can decide whether or not they have customers for the larger sizes. The problem is that (IIRC) for example RG's size grid doesn't even go above 52. It's not like RG 54 would be for giants either...

Turns out those AMI anti-fit trousers we were talking about a while ago are actually called "street fit jeans" made from a heavy wool, and not the carrot fit trousers he already put out.

Somebody should buy them and tell me all about them, and then decide they don't like them and sell them to me for 1/2 off.
