im pretty sure its mailing isaia or zegna, doubt its fused. probably because its a lil tight and it needs a press.

Nah man. The jacket looks fine. I am looking at it right now.

It's a RLBL, so no fuse. Let me see if another pic during lunch comes out better.

well thats a relief!

Yup. But I also have no idea what bubbling looks like. So I'm kind of curious.

No three-piece for me today, but I have channeled my inner AAS and gone with some layering. Not least because it is f-ing freezing here today!

I do, and I'm not too proud to admit it in public!  I first came across it when I was about twenty and bought some extremely cheap suits for work.  After a couple of dry-cleanings, they started to bubble, I guess as the PERC degrades the glue.  But I was young and foolish.  

 

More recently, being older and still foolish, I had a jacket made by a local Indian tailor.  I discovered that he had used bonding liberally, on the very decent cloth I'd provided, and naturally that was the end of out relationship, with a modest amount of shouting.  The jacket was entirely ruined after one cleaning.  Never mind, it made me look like Herman Munster anyway.  I'm now on my fifth tailor here - this one's Chinese, and not doing badly.

 

Not feeling the need to immortalise my shame, I didn't take any pictures of the item in question.  But here's one I've found on the Googlesphere that shows a similar effect - even worse; this one appears to be bonded all over!

No pics yet, but seeming that I have my Purple Label suit back from the tailor's, I'm rocking that bad boy today for the first time. God its comfy.

Hmmm....I did use a steamer once until I realized that I shouldn't be doing it. It does look like maybe it needs a visit to a dry cleaners. 

And then a visit to the gym cus that jacket is getting smaller.
