I don't even bother with the dry cleaning bags, though that's probably safer. I just lay my jackets/SC:s in the bottom of the suitcase and wrap the arms and bottom around everything else that goes on top (err, kinda hard to explain). Anyway, if you unpack as soon as you get to the hotel and hang up the suits and coats they shouldn't have any wrinkles. Oh, and if they do, there's always the steamy bathroom trick (though some say that it can harm your jacket, but I've never noticed that).

It was an enjoyable evening. The Ring Jacket stuff was nicely made, but the cut would need some work to accommodate my non-flat ass. Lovely fabrics, and a very small arm scye. But pricey. $1300 for a jacket. I didn't try on any of the pants.

Jim Ockert is clearly passionate about his store and the clothing business.

Murl, you gotta come up next time and meet everyone.

Keep me posted. I'll head up there for one.

This. Unless your suits/jackets are made of tissue paper, they wont wrinkle too bad as long as you dont fold them up super small. Just try to fold them as few times as possible (for me, that's arms across the body, then once in half) and put them in the bottom of the suitcase. Then hang them up as soon as you get in. Never had a problem with it.

I wouldn't do the bathroom trick because I'd be worried about puckering, but I've honestly never needed it.

Double Post from WAYWRN!

Just wanted to share the Formosa suit with you guys. 

Special thanks to @Murlsquirl for helping me get this suit! :slayer:

Thanks all for all the help along the way. Hope this looks good.

Concern: The tie should have been something thicker. The pants should've been pulled up before the shoot. They're not long.

BRACES
post #12818 of 37662

I'm still not sold on the huge lapels. 

 

Said it before and I'll say it again, roped shoulders look great on noods.

post #12819 of 37662
They shoulders aren't roped!

My pleasure, Noodles. Looking good.
post #12820 of 37662

Jacket fit looks really good Noodles! 

 

congrats...

 

and I second the braces....they are sort of nerdy...but are super underrated in their utility...

post #12821 of 37662
Braces are one of those things that you're hesitant to try, but once you do, you'll never go back.

Wait, they bump up though right? I thought that's what it was called when they did that!

I think where you may be seeing that is his left facing arm, third pic down. But if you look at all the photos as a whole, you'll see the shoulders are not roped.

Roped shoulders have a very pronounced ridge all the time and are easy enough to spot.

I was just giving you a hard time. JRD kept calling them roped shoulders and I kept saying they were not. The little bit they poke up will settle with wear.

What do you guys think of roped shoulders on jackets, by the way?

Nearly all my stuff is more of a soft, natural shoulder.
