Dry Cleaning 3-Roll-2 jackets? - Page 6

Actually, they've previously managed a 3-2 RLPL when given a similarly specific request, and I've used them for bespoke stuff too, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed... we'll see what happens... it'll be amusing if nothing else. laugh.gif

 

At worst, I'll get it re-cleaned again, without pressing, and then ask someone at my tailor's to press it. But I'm astonishingly lazy, so will see if the dry cleaners are able to perform a minor miracle in a single attempt first.

The good wishes obviously paid off. Jacket came back perfectly fine, which considering its partially-lined construction, very lightweight fabric, 3-2 roll and MOP buttons, is little short of remarkable. They also managed to press a normal 2B linen suit to have a nice soft roll at the same time.

 

All I specified for the 3-2 was "a soft lapel roll to the second button down" (for other suits, I still specify a soft lapel roll, but no need for button instruction). I think it's the hand-pressing that makes their service reasonably safe to use. Either that, or luck. :)

That was my expression.

Your success story is not quite as interesting as an utter disaster would have been, however. I am disappoint!

That just means it's your turn to give something to the tender mercies of your local cleaner and report back. It's the SF version of Russian Roulette. Sooner or later, someone('s garment) dies...

The Government wants to make sure banks and corporations are held accountable for their actions. That is silliness, they should be forcing dry cleaners around the globe to be held accountable. That is what we really need.
