Any quick advice on getting some heavy wrinkles out?  Steam, press iron, or have it dry cleaned??

I obviously want to get this in as best pristine condition as possible, with least amount of compromise.

So gents, what has worked well for your guys?
i would suggest warm iron, lots of steam and a towell over the tie (between it and the iron, that is), moderate preasure.

I would have passed on many of those shoes except if they were your size, dirt cheap, and you REALLY NEEDED that exact kind of shoe. The florsheims don't look new either. Look like they have creases.

They are all not new now.. I have worn each!

post #100914 of 124667

So, next weekend, my wife starts her Yoga instructor training. Friday, Saturday and Sunday once or twice a month for the next 6 or 8 months. I talked her into letting me tag along on the full day Saturday so I can hit some stores. I can't believe she just asked me if I could keep myself busy from 8AM til 8PM. Sometimes I think she doesn't even know me. Of course I can, but actually the stores don't close til 9.

Someone @ Brooks brothers was laying pretty heavily on the whacky weed when they came up with this:
