Hand wash? Dry Clean? Anything specific requests? And how often?


A)Spot clean if possible

B) Clean as required

C) Clean seasonally if relevant.

NB this is my dry cleaning routine for everything.

Maybe our Victorian members can check with Christian... smile.gif

FYI, on their Facebook page the other day they told another customer that they did not offer the Osaka in MTM.

That was me that asked! I posted on their wall to confirm after ColdEyedPugilist mentioned it in the thread... I'd be curious to find out what the other blocks available look like since they said they had a 'wide range'... I've always liked the Osaka block though...

You seem like a nice bloke, so don't take this the wrong way; maybe it's your photography but those shoes do not go with that outfit. Tan cordovan is too casual for a red power tie and grey business suit. I can't help but think black captoes or brogues would have been more in keeping with the rest of your look.

No offence taken. Yeah, you're right but I just got the boots yesterday and wanted to wear them out today to show them to a friend. The more I think about it, the more I can see what you mean. In any case, the boots passed the one day test and still felt just as comfortable at the end of the day.

 

Just finished watching Superbrands and learnt a few things:

 

  • Superdry is not Japanese!
  • People actually pronounce Nike to rhyme with 'bike'

One big thing i have noticed is that the wealthier suburbs produce a better average of stock but it is often the ones you wouldn't expect that yield the most high quality finds. I dont know if this is the fact that people in certain areas look for certain things and overlook others i.e people in boxhill looking for jeans and not Canali, but thats kinda how I've found it.

Not sure if that makes sense...

Been wearing a few pair for about half year and no dry clean.... just hang and air out.

 

When you take it to dry clean, do you ask that they don't use the chemicals? Just steam and press - thought I red this somewhere to extend the life of them =\

I agree. I've had luck in Frankston and many of the outer suburbs. Some friends and I often make a day of it and drive further to Mornington, for example, for lunch.

I've actually been in an op shop in Frankston and overheard someone say, "Aw fuck yeah, tracksuit pants, 2 bucks!". They probably think I'm a 'p**fta' for wanting to clear out the sportcoat section, but I'll glady take it! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
