Beer spilled on suit sleeve?

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
I was in a student bar coming from a job fair so I was wearing a suit. Some schmuck spilled beer on my suit sleeve. There's no real damage and it's no cause for dry cleaning, but what tricks do you guys use?

I figured I'd just dab it with a damp napkin and spray a little Febreeze?

Funny how Boston bars play nothing but 90's grunge... Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots.

Been partying a bit too much?

Beer, calamari sauce? Spills abound...

Haha. Think again.

I don't know if you're aware, but unlike water, there's actually "stuff" in beer that will stay behind in the suit. Sure, the stain won't show, but the stain may harden, there may be a bad smell, and it's like pheromones to moths. Not to mention the fact that you'd be known as "that dirty bastard who won't clean his clothes after being soaked in beer." Why do you hate your clothes so much?

Very true. It's been said that moths don't actually like the fibers themselves, they like chewing holes in areas that are soaked with sugars and other foods. So be warned, homie.

Guys, come on, two similar threads is no reason to be an asshole to him. josepidal: You indeed need to take it to a dry cleaner unfortunately.

jose,
beer splattered suit,
tartar sauce splattered tie,
stained black pants,
and when you have nothing else, you intentionally ruin your lobb monkstraps, and buy a suit one size too small.

you are a sartorial masochist!

what are you going to do next, set your tux on fire at the office banquet?

run your brioni tie through the 20-sheet paper shredder?

accidentally flush your pantherella sox down the toilet and retrieve them back at the county sewer?

i cant wait for the next episode! (sorry- i just love that smiley <--)

When such mishaps occur, I follow a three-step process:

1. Give the fool who spilled beer on my suit a withering look and make him feel very small. If he is too drunk to register a withering look, express your displeasure in no uncertain terms. Settle for an apology, dry cleaning money, or a drink.

2. Shrug and say something like "what the hell" or "shit happens" and relax.

3. Take the suit to be dry cleaned as soon as possible.

it is unfortunate that we seem to all be free from spills from time to time. "Let he who is free from sin cast the first stone..." Surely we have all spilled at some point in our lives? If not, you must be perfect.

Don't condemn him for being the unfortunate victim of spills. Why not answer his question like the civilized gentleman that we surely are? If it was a newcomer who had never before posted such a question, would he be treated with such disrespect? I fear not.

To answer your question sir, I would definitely take it to the dry cleaners. That seems the best way to treat the stained area of the suit sleeve.

That's pretty much the same thing I said above, but more to the point. This roasting of jose is pretty uncalled for.

If you really need to ask (yet again) I would suggest you burn it. Life's little mishaps are of no interest and if you cannot exercise a judgement as whether to sponge or dry clean then....
