Drake's ties ruined in shipping????? - Page 2

post #16 of 17
I've restored ties many times, some of them with huge creasing for bad packaging.

Never never iron a tie you could kill the 3D shape, use simply a steamer or vapor jet of an iron at 10/15 cm from fabric and after brush and press it with a very very soft brush after the jet.
Reapeting this many times the ties return like new and fabric and shape remain perfect.

But your ties are perfect, it's a common fold when boxed, they don't need any care.

bump...

 

rolling and hanging for a few days unfortunately didn't help on the twill.. again, the grenadine will be fine. i'm not sure if it's difficult to judge how deep the impressions are from the pictures but it would look ridiculous to wear the twill like this in public.. from the side it looks like a bent penis.. I'll try hanging in the bathroom while I shower if that's okay. After I will let it dry and then wear around the house a few times before I resort to the dry iron/linen.

 

edit: steam worked—used a steamer and linen hank in between.
