post #136 of 1334

Hi Kirby,

 

First, I apologize if this question has been asked before -- though, if it has, perhaps that bodes well for my thesis here.

 

At any rate, I've got 18.25" shoulders, and unfortunately, this presents a bit of a Goldilocks problem with the sizes of your suit and jacket hangers. The 18.5" model is too wide for my suits (I've tried), and I worry that the 17" model won't properly fill the shoulders. Do you have any plans to introduce an intermediate size between the Medium (17") and Large (18.5")? Maybe an 18", or an 18.25"?

 

I suspect that my shoulder size is pretty common. It tends to be the default shoulder size for garments ranging from 38 to 40, depending on the maker. So introducing an intermediate size might be filling a very real market need.

 

If you aren't planning to introduce any new sizes, which size hanger would you recommend? The 18.5" is obviously a bit large, and it is noticeably big on my jackets -- but if you don't think it'll do any harm, I guess I can manage.

 

Thanks!

The Repair Cream is just pigment and resin -- perfect for repairing more heavily-damaged leather as it can be applied in multiple coats to build up a finish back to normal. And once it dries, it will never bleed.
But before any of this, I recommend first cleaning to ottoman with Saphir Nettoyant Cleaning Soap using a natural foam sponge. This will clean away any dirt and prepare the leather to receive the nourishment from the Leather Lotion MOD and Juvacuir. Otherwise, you'll just work the dirt into deeper into the leather.
After a little work, it'll be like new!

I used the 'Canadian' product that I bought from Kirby on my leather suitcase. Worked great!

First I cleaned it with Saphir Saddle Soap.
Then I gave it two treatments of Saphir Leather Lotion
Finally - two coats of Canadian.

The Canadian product worked really well at covering minor scratches, etc. etc. And doesn't seem to be prone to rubbing off at all.

Psst. We're getting rid of our remaining Alfred Sargent shoes from our Special Project (we had to order extras in case any shoes did not fit). At $550, they're a steal.

Just a few sizes available.

Jackie - Great question and one that we get all the time. With one's suit hangers, it is always better to be too small than too large. What you don't want is for the hanger to extend past the shoulder into the sleeve head, which will disrupt the drape of the sleeve and can damage the fabric. So, better to go with the 17.0" Width. Because the 2.5" shoulder flares are 5x larger than average hangers, all the extra shoulder support will render the small difference in width insignificant.

Hope this helps.

And always, if you get your hangers and are not happy with the size, we'll exchange them for free under our 100% Perfect Fit Guarantee.

I wanted to place an order but then I got hit with the shipping frown.gif does anyone know if they are going to have a free shipping promotion soon? In the past can you still use the AskAndy discount with the free shipping promotion?

Unfortunately not..it's just too much. But if you PM me, I can see if I can work something out to take off the edge.

Just ordered some Saphir Renovateur and shoe polish, my first purchase. I'm going to add the italian shave set as well and hopefully combine the shipping as its quite high already. Very excited, I've heard great things about Saphir but also from Santa Maria Novella.
