Dude, dont try to do anything with it at home. Your chances of further screwing it up are much greater than success. My suggestion (if you have some time and a little money) is to send it out to Rave fabricare in Arizona (http://www.ravefabricare.com/true-quality-cleaning/2012/3/16/rescuing-a-dairy-product-saturated-suit-used-in-a-commercial.aspx).
It isnt cheap but after a garment has already been dry cleaned and the stain wasnt taken out, it could have set in the stain. That is why i would send it to the best cleaner in the country. Oh and try to get your money back from the previous cleaner if you can.
Thanks for the response but I already tried to remove it at home. And guess what, the stain miraculously disappeared!
It must have been a sweat spot or something because a heavy pollution wouldn´t come off so easily. I used body temperature water and a soft sponge. I had to go through the stains approximately 3-4 times, gently rubbing the afflicted areas, and now the blazer is dry and clean.
I guess this is just pure luck, nothing else. But from this lesson I learned that I will try to remove less serious stains at home first before taking my clothes to the cleaners. Of course unless I come across with an obvious "unremovable" stain...
Since I´m from Europe it would cost me way too much, and even though it is a very well fitting Bianchi blazer I wouldn´t send it to the States just to get it fixed.
So no option for refund any more but problem solved! And apparently this is a way much better ending :)post #20763 of 293623/15/13 at 11:51ampost #20764 of 293623/15/13 at 11:54amQuote:
Yes, possibly you´re right, but this is the biggest company here in the country, I wouldn´t have thought that they will return my blazer in such condition...post #20765 of 293623/15/13 at 4:07pmpost #20766 of 293623/16/13 at 3:23am
If your shirt was colored, you could go with a pastel colored tie to take some of the attention away from the jacket / shirt. But because your jacket is a 'power' color and your shirt is white, I would go with a navy blue or a burgundy solid tie or with a subtle stripe so as to complement the 'power' nature of the jacket.post #20767 of 293623/16/13 at 7:33amQuote:Originally Posted by eqcitizen
You arent going to get much love on this forum asking for advice on a black suit. Most would say "burn it and the vest too". As many here will tell you a black suit should be relegated to funerals and not much else. With that disclaimer let us continue on to the question. As a generaliztion one should not mix suits, especially when the colors are extremely close. I can think of a few exceptions but this one doesnt make the list. I am sorry but it just doesnt work. Use the vest under a sport coat that is a different color or, if you want to look like a hipster, wear it with no jacket.
Thanks for the advice. What type of sport coats do you think would work with a black vest under it? Maybe a tan or grey? And what if I wore a matching light grey pants and jacket, with the black vest? Would that work?post #20768 of 293623/16/13 at 8:52ampost #20769 of 293623/16/13 at 10:08ampost #20770 of 293623/16/13 at 1:26pm
Hello, don't know if this is the right place for this newbie question, if not - my apologies.
I'm trying to know what type of fabric this suit is made of? and color would be described as mid-grey i guess?
I really like both the fabric and the color and would like to know what it is and where I could find something similar. Thanks in advance a lot for your help!post #20771 of 293623/16/13 at 6:13pmQuote:Curiosity compels me to ask, which country is this, where a dry cleaner is the nation's largest employer?
I'm not looking to make fun of your country, mind you. It just seems like such a bizarre situation...
Of course, I suppose it could be a situation like what we'd have in the US, were Walmart (the largest non-government employer in the US) to start offering dry cleaning. (I *think* the largest US employer is technically the Department of Defense. Anyone know if they run a dry cleaning service? No, I'm not joking. I could imagine some DoD dry cleaning business which would be found at isolated military bases, at the Pentagon, etc.)
Anyway, there's often no real correlation between a company's size, and the quality of the job it does.post #20772 of 293623/16/13 at 6:23pm
I tried my hand at thrift shopping this weekend. To prepare, I took with me a list of suit brands that are apparently worthwhile. Today, I found this Pal Zileri Gruppo Forall. I thought this might be a good place to find out if this is actually a decent find or if I wasted my money. Thanks in advance for any insight.
post #20773 of 293623/17/13 at 2:13amHi All,
- Despite the pictures, the suit is actually a dark blue.
- There don't seem to be any indications of size.
Can i get your critique on this navy blazer i purchased when in japan last year - i havent been able to wear due to warm weather. i know its not your "traditional" sports blazer, but i love the soft shoulders and slim look of it.
I dont normally wear blazers and just want to get a quick sanity check from you experienced SFers.
thanks !post #20774 of 293623/17/13 at 2:17ampost #20775 of 293623/17/13 at 2:18am
