Thanks guys. Ended up buying the Aspesi navy cotton m65. Ordered medium instead of small ( to fit a suit jacket underneath easily). Apparently they run slim. $310 delivered seems like a good deal.

Thanks mate. Maybe an olive m43 next. Mr porter is stacked with m43s. Possibly next #menswear trend. They have a lovely Paul smith olive m43 (;

Thanks crdb. That's lots of great information. Didn't expect it here (who would) but will definitely save me lots of time, right when I need it too.

Thx for the heads up- picked up a pair of suede craftsman. Surprisingly quite a lot of stock even in the popular sizes, but they were selling out quick.

Transcended VR to IRL last night over an (sigh had to behave as a dinner was pending) ale with Gerry Nelson, CD, fxh and Coxsackie who demonstrated that men over 50 can look slick with a buzz cut.

Prior picked a PRL purpke silk cable knit sweater on a massive mark down aside from the culture I can say if Melbourne "he came,he saw, he did a little shopping"

Edit;and a little drinking at Naked for Satan great views from the roof bar.

I picked up a Barbour Duke from End last week and wore it for the first time today. Without a doubt a bad ass looking jacket, if you're going for that look. Paired perfectly with a plain white T.

Are they rollers?

Sweat stains on the collars of some of my shirts - what to do?

 

Napi-San?

 

Vinegar?

 

Something else?

 

Give it a soak? Just run something extra through a regular wash? Set the water to super hot and then blast it?

Vinegar, let it soak in. Mix up a paste of napisan, apply over area. Throw in to regular wash, wallah.
post #2158 of 3528
Napisan or any oxygen based cleaner - spray on, leave 30 mins, then wash as per normal. Works for me.

Yer True Black Suede Brothel Creepers - almost the real thing = Rollers - poor old shooey had to take to bed for 3 days after seeing the (cheap, nasty, glued, unmanly etc) desert boots.

No - some brand called URGE - never heard of them. Never worn - had them given to me.
There was nothing wrong with the old Rollers - (except if you step in dogshit) - the ripple soles are very comfy - I don't know how current day Rollers compare.

Napisan - or the Aldi version - in a bucket for 24 hours. Not hot water.
Dry cleaning will set sweat stains - don't do it.
It's the soaking that removes stains.
Napisan stuff essentially makes water more watery.

If you tend to get sweat stains - don't let shirts sit with sweat stains - even if you toss them in a bucket of only water as soon as you get home it will help to stop the stains. If you have a problem - keep a large bucket of water in the laundry or even shower and throw shirts in it as soon as you get home and change (you do change shirts and clothes as soon as you get home don't you?) and even if you then only wash once a week it will stop stains setting.

If its really bad - get a stick of SARD wonder soap and make a past about the consistency of toothpaste and rub it into BOTH sides of the wetted stain and leave for 24 hours.
You can scrub it a bit with an old tooth brush or even more perfect /correct is to rub the same material against itself - say tail of the same shirt.
