Actually, I was thinking drugs. But maybe that's just me....
These are funny. My guy asked for a quote on shipping to Singapore, which I provided, he bid, then I invoiced him with the EXACT same shipping I quoted (which, BTW, was $5 less than cost) and he said shipping was too high and asked me to cancel. I did. I also blocked him. *sigh*
I've used "The Method" a few times on shirts with real MOP buttons (Zegna, Borrelli, et al.). Maybe the vinegar soak I use is too dilute or too short, but I've never really had a problem. I was concerned about this too initially, so I tried it out on a sacrificial lamb with real MOP buttons the first time. No issue. But I'm also not convinced that step does much, so I agree you can skip it.
Do I recall correctly one or more of you like to "mate" your hangers with your suits? If so, I have at least one Oxxford and one PRL wooden hanger (the thin kind; not the ones with the massive shoulders) that I'm not really doing much of anything with. PM me if interested.
There's a few of us... I've posted most actively about it I think, but ick578 is looking for an Isaia hanger. I might give him mine if we ever manage to meet up, since it's for a smaller dude, but finding a large one for the Isaia suit I WILL have someday is going to be difficult ^^;
I can use the fat-shouldered Oxxford hangers, but am looking to divest myself of the thin-shouldered ones as well, in fact. Sorry!
