Yeah, I am surprised he did not get beat up yet by local thugs hired by the hotel, I guess he lived in some international hotel chain. If that's case, our poster should expect some form of compensation from the hotel. But in any case, I don't think the staff committed any serious gaffe esp if you take their sartorial knowledge into account. I am pretty sure they don't throw a cashmere sweater or a suit into a washing machine.

If that's any consolation, I think some dry nudies are still available in HK Sebiu for under 100USD.

I know, but those have care labels and it's much more common knowledge that you don't hot dry a cashmere than it is that you don't wash dry denim. I'd be pissed, but I think it's somewhat understandable.

Don't worry so much about it man, just wear the shit out of them, they'll still fade fine. My RRDS are at 5 months now and fading very nicely, and their first and only 3 washes were within the first 3 months. They're certainly not ruined...

I find it kinda funny that you are angry when they were providing you what most people would acknowledge it as good service :P. Don't get me wrong though, i would have been quite angry too assuming what you said was true.

I dont think the jeans are ruined. You will get your combs back, and i dont think that 'one wash' would have removed too much indigo anyway. As for shrinkage, they will strech out, unless theyve become too short lol? You can always try and pull the leg to stretch it out the length.

Jeans are like a delicate lace thong, wear them gently, and try not to be too cheeky.

My sympathy-

Slightly off topic but related to hotel service and negotiating tactics in China. My wife and I stayed in a quasi-luxury facility by a beautiful lake in Guang Dong province. The hotel was almost full. The room we were given was fine, but for the fact that there was an immense slash in the window screen and all manner of insect life, including mosquitoes, had moved into the room, attracted by the light, while we were at dinner. We did not discover this until after we returned to dinner. We complained and we immediately moved to another room - what might be thought of as a junior suite.

The next morning upon checking out, the hotel sought to charge us an additional 20%. The reason was that we had upgraded our room. We explained about the invasion of insects and the fact that the room switch was the night staff's remedy. The staff were unpersuaded and argued that the insects were not the hotel's and, having come from outside, were not the hotel's responsibility. The front desk manager stood by mutely.

My wife, a very patient woman, tried reasoning in Cantonese and Mandarin. Finally, I, far less reasonable, asked her to tell them that they had exactly five seconds to decide to take the original room price or nothing. She did. They stood firm. We started to walk to the waiting taxi. The front desk manager approached us before we reached the door and, insisting that we had misunderstood the bill, agreed to accept the original amount.

Since then, all of our disputes regarding service at virtually all establishments in China have resolved quickly with firm, almost obdurate, insistence on exactly the desired outcome. Different appraoches have worked in Western Europe, the US, and Japan.

Morale of story, stand very firm.
