I searched the forum and didn't see anything specifically on point to my tie's performance issues. I have a silk Armani tie I like a lot. It isn't wrinkled per se, but it looks pretty limp and pathetic---I guess better put, in comparison to many of my newer, crisp/sharp ties, it is lacking (both in form/body and in the cloth texture itself appearing unkempt).
In reading threads on wrinkled ties, it seems steaming is the best way to handle wrinkles, and that dry cleaning a tie is not advisable. In the case of my tie however, I'm reluctant to steam it (don't need it to be any more 'relaxed' than it already is) and my first thought is to starch/press it.
Any suggestions on returning this tie to its former glory or is it time to retire it?
