Yeah jefferyd has a guide posted here on sf and posted on aaac also. His post on aaac has a good pic demonstrating the effect of pressing.

The suits seems fine with normal movement - albeit poor pictures which cannot be seen without inclining the head.

Maybe steam your keyboard as you want to steam something

I remember seeing that page and almost crying. I can't press because it is too difficult. I can't steam because it has problems and I can't dry clean because of chemicals.

Why did I have to be sick today? This thread is really hurting my lungs with laughter, but I love it.
What are the differences between 'poofing' & 'popping' ? This I need to understand.

I think the jacket has bigger problems, like severe bubbling on the right lapel.

Any one else see this, or am I hallucinating again?

I see it too. I hope the man hasn't washed that in his bathtub. Looks like fusing separated. Definitely needs a light ironing. Poofing, Popping -and- bubbling, all on one jacket. ouch.

On a similar note, do pant creases get removed/replaced easily? I had pants trimmed since they were too full, but now the creases seem messed up.

I just got the jacket tailored and I noticed the bubbling a bit of the right lapel.. can anything be done? How can you even see that in those pictures? Is it the tailors fault? I didn't notice the bubbling when she pulled the sides in as I was wearing it.
