The guy I bought It from liked to soak himself in drakkar noir :/

Sorry to hear about your experience, but if I'm ever bringing something that I couldn't afford to lose to clean, I always bring it to a high-end cleaner rather than the corner dry cleaner (or just hand wash it myself, which probably would have been better to get the perfume smell out). It'd be ridiculous to make them liable for every $2000 garment that got damaged when they're used to dealing with $50 dress shirts from Nordstrom. I'd take it to an SLP boutique and ask who they use to do their cleaning, see if they can salvage it. Will those stains come out with a mild detergent and cold water?

Sorry for your woes, Max. Hope this gets sorted out.

My SLP leather-sleeved varsity was successfully dry cleaned to try to get the cologne smell out of it but it's still lingering.

Is there a fool proof method to removing the odor? It's not a "bad" smell, just some kind of perfume.

Thanks.

Here's my copy pasta for what I always recommend when people discuss cigarette smoke etc.

I get a dry cleaning garmet "bag" and place the garment inside. I then CAREFULLY add either activated charcoal (not everyone has this handy) or coffee grounds (most people have these, but then your clothes smell like coffee) to the bottom of the bag and then duct tape it shut. Hang for a couple of days and that should do the trick. I'd imagine baking soda would be successful as well, just be careful.

This method isn't magic, but it's served me well as I have some friends who are smokestacks.

Cologne might be trickier if it was sprayed directly onto the garment.

Baking soda should work too
post #1686 of 2314
Thanks, guys. Cyc, I remember you posting that a while back but couldn't recall the details.

I think it was sprayed on the jacket. The eBay seller in the UK "fashionablebargains" said she didn't smell it when she was packing it which had to be bull. She gave me $25 and then blocked me from bidding on anything else.

So, just a box of baking soda in the bottom of a closed dry cleaning/trash bag with the jacket hanging? Does it need to be air tight?

How about non-scented febreeze?

I bought a jacket that was just drenched in cig smoke. I put it in a garbage bag with an open box of baking soda and sealed it up tight, left it in there for 3-4 days, took it out, let it air for 3-4 days with a fan pointing at it, did the baking soda bit again, and then after I airing it out a second time the smell was almost completely gone.

SLP jeans that have that chain in the back above the tag... is it normal for them to just fall off?

 

Any way to repair/permanently attach it?

I had a leather with a dank smoke smell. I fabreezed the inner lining and hung it outside almost everday for two months. The smell eventually went away but it took time.

Yeah they're pretty flimsy. If you take it in store apparently they can re-attach it for you.

damn dude, I feel you; I'd be devastated too… especially if my guitar was broken by the delivery guy on top of the jacket being ruined. I wouldn't get involved with suing, but I'd definitely look into trying to get the most out of them as possible. $100 back on a $2k jacket sounds ridiculous. 

 

I feel like a lot of dry cleaners and tailors in the states are relatively rough with clothing. ever since moving here from Seoul, my family has had a lot of wool sweaters shrunken, etc. I know in Korea customers would go fucking nuts if the service had ruined the clothing, so the services are really really careful about handling pieces. I remember back when I was younger, whenever my family and I would fly out to Korea to visit, we'd always take certain pieces to get dry cleaned and tailored in Seoul.

Dude I was as angry as you are right now, I'm not a saint or anything. I'm just not in that situation right now so I can just say I'm not much of a sue everyone kinda guy and this appears to be one of those situations. BTW your dry cleaner may send the pieces to be dry cleaned elsewhere, maybe tell him there is a difference between a spot not going away and a jacket coming back to you with holes and some NEW stains and see what they can do. I certainly do not see them paying you back 2k or whatever but see what they can do.

Yeah pretty stupid reason to take it to the dry cleaners

Just take the L
