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.

I like the colours & patterns a lot, but the jacket looks a bit tight around the chest. Leave it unbuttoned, if that's the case. It'll look nice.

It looks to me like he might have something in the inside pocket too, which might be contributing to the effect.

 

Cheers,

Great suit!  Perfect length on the trousers  That tie is also perfect with the suit.  I think this is the best I've seen you look.

Bought a pair of shirling lined anthracite boots and kept waiting for the first snow to inaugurate them. Turns out we won't be having snow till march. Thanks Obama.
