What were Mina's care instructions?

Does she give them to people who look like they really care or people who look like they'll otherwise mess it up?

I didn't get any care instructions frown.gif

Big A, they're machine washable.

Aren't you supposed to wear them raw and never, ever wash them? This is the streetwear and denim thread right? smile.gif

RE: Mina's instructions, not that strict but she made it clear that for the sake of the lapel roll the lapels should only be ironed from the back. Dino also mentioned that it's best to put a piece of cloth (like a handkerchief) between the iron and the fabric of the suit. I'm still giving my local guy grief over half folded shirt collars so my guess is that these types of requests are way outside the realm of possibility.

Anyway, thanks for the recs. I've received a few other nods for Meurice so I may go with them. I'll report back when the time comes.

Go for a cleaner who does does the cleaning all by hand. You won't get special considerations from those who do it by machine. I took my SC to a regular cleaner, paid $3 and it came back darker and had also shrunk at the sleeves. I took it to a hand cleaner, paid $25, the dark color came off and looks much better.

This is pretty basic stuff, and most quality cleaners follow these steps (i.e. C. French, Hallak, M. Paulette etc.).

Is there any way Mina will come to DC, and is it possible to achieve the Phineas Cole look through her I've noticed she cuts a slim suit?
post #2235 of 3926
asking a bespoke house to conform to a mass-market brand's cut is like telling a fine restaurant to make something you ate at a chain restaurant, if I were you I would let her do her thing, if you're looking for roped sleeves, go with a british or northern italian tailor instead of neapolitan, although theres nothing wrong with having both styles in your closet
