This is the one I posted about a couple weeks ago/use personally.

I've found that it does the job 90% of the time if it's a stain that's dried up, especially in suits/jackets that have nap.  I think oil stains are a different animal and I've heard people recommend baby wipes.  I think a nice brush is the #1 tool for maintaining your own suits as well.  Dry cleaning frequently will shorten the life of your clothes substantially.

How does one care for a vicuna/cashmere jacket in general? I'm going to be steaming it then taking pics on a mannequin.

Why not.

Does anyone know this label/item?  The neck tag was cut out.  It says "Made in Jersey British Isles", all wool and leather. It needs cleaning, but nice fisherman's sweater or 'jumper' as they say.

Well under the 10% suggested "rule".  Awesome skate park, movie set, Walking Dead filming location, etc.  On 1600 riverfront acres.

Just to chime in Kent has an eBay store where they sell seconds / extra stock. Mines perfect tho
