Supposedly, you can rub the water spot with another part of the silk of the same tie, and it will magically disappear. Never tried it, though.
Yes, I received and tried that suggestion for the tie at issue. Â I guess the object is to redistribute the sizing; unfortunately, it didn't work for me. Â One of my favorites, it was, too--a pumpkin-orange Zegna with small woven blue squares. Â Gentlemen, don't let this happen to you. Tie shopping has been the most frustrating aspect of my eBay experience. Â I won a positively cynosural chartreuse Charvet herringbone a while back; it arrived in a soft envelope, and resembled nothing so much as a balled-up newspaper. Â The "shower treatment" and 3+ months of hanging have done little to remove the creases. Â
