I'm considering doing this for a few shirts. Is it possible to do it with any colored shirt as long as it's cotton, and can you mix colors, or is that not advisable (that is, will the color run, or could I do the Oxy soak with blue/white/pink/etc all in the same batch)?
I'm grateful to dongale for bringing this topic up, and to AndroFan for posting that link. Nothing more frustrating than a great find that has collar/pit stains. I used a pit stain solution once -- name escapes me at the moment -- that was great for pit stains, but when I tried to apply it to collars, it delaminated them. Anyone ever have an issue with Oxy in that regard?
While I'm at it, I may as well report. Things have slowed down a bit since the holidays. Nothing earth-shattering and mostly shirts, though I did pick up:
-two pairs of Oxxford trousers (one blue, one gray window, both sold)
-an Oxxford "cashwool" tan herringbone blazer (sold; Nataku: I didn't ignore your advice; my buyer for the trousers expressed interest, so I went back and grabbed it).
-Two Zegna suits (not for sale). One was a recent blue pinstripe with working surgeon cuffs and double vents. The other is a slightly older brown with blue pinstripe "Trofeo" fabric, but unvented (can't have it all).
-Shirts: several Zegnas (sold here on the Forum), a RLPL (same), a couple of Tyrwhitts (including Sea Island, still available but VERY small -- measures less than 15), a few Hickey Freemans in the 17-17.5 size range (available; posting to SF soon) and a couple of Robert Talbotts (same).
-Brand new J Crew Ludlow wool blazer using real Yorkshire tweed (by Moon) that I will sell on the Bay (or to anyone here, if they're interested, but I presume not).
-Similarly Bay bound is a nice Corneliani silk/wool houndstooth blazer in a 46-48 that has some very minor spots under the right arm (yes, I will disclose them) that I really should have noticed when I bought it, but didn't.
-Ties: Boss blue stripe (sold), BB blue stripe (sold), BB beige/green stripes in grosgrain (available), Zegna purple with green polka dots (available) and CT pink multistripe (available)
If anyone is interested in pics/prices or whatnot, let me know.
Last but not least, I picked up this overcoat. It's tagged "Crombie Kintyre." I've done my homework on Crombie, but this doesn't seem to be the same label. Anyone know anything about this? The jacket itself is in pristine condition. It's navy with a very subtle herringbone (or is it french twill?) weave, single breasted and vented, with lapels that are just about at the edge of modern acceptability. It fits very well, hitting just at the knees. Any input or illumination greatly appreciated.
