Nope, not at all.
Alright, got the package today with barely enough light to take a few pictures. First off, I forgot that I only sent the jacket and not the full suit. So the price for the "bespoke service" cleaning and press for the jacket alone was $55. Shipping cost me another $35 total to and from CA...they charge you for return shipping once it is shipped. Here is how it arrived..
Do you think the postal service cared that it was labeled "FRAGILE" and "THIS SIDE UP"? Hell no. Completely out of Rave's hands, but this is the mess..
Once I got all the plastic off, all was good. The first thing I noticed was a nice wide flared hanger that the shoulders were resting on. The fabric was nice and soft and not a hint of any chemical scent. It seriously looks and feels even better than before I sent it. I took these pictures seconds after it came out of the box so it was a little wrinkled, but after hanging for about 10 minutes it's wrinkle free and perfectly pressed...with a nice 3r2 roll, which they called to confirm before beginning work.
All in all, they exceeded my expectations and I am very happy. Unfortunately for my checking account, they will be getting all my jackets from here on out. If you guys have any questions, just ask.
