In my experience, yes. I have tried several methods of getting stains out of silk ties. Perhaps 1 in 10 worked out.

If they are right, I think this suit has been heavily altered, and you will have trouble finding someone for it - even though it looks really nice.

Deja vu.

Didn't we have almost exactly this phenomenon with an incredibly similar suit a few hundred pages ago?

When I saw that pit size, I couldnt help think of Brianpore. Then I couldn't help think: Where the hell is that broseph?

We did and I was the culprit then also. I'm bad at measurements, what can I say? I'm the perfect combo of lazy and dont really give a damn

I'm a 40-42 and the jacket fits me perfectly. The sleeves are a bit short on me but I have monkey arms. I'm happy to simply ship the item to anyone interested and if it works, great. We can work something out at that point. If it doesn't, just ship it on back.

Well, I tried it on wool and ended up murdering a unicorn (I.e., ruined a sweet pair of flat front Zanellas). The secret of oxy is hydrogen peroxide - a powerful bleach. So if you do it, I would dial back the concentration and leave it on for less time. I've also found Oxy tends to be a dispersant: it takes the stain and wicks it along the fabric. So I've found that spot treating diffuses, without removing, the stain. Best results are when the item is completely immersed.

Give it a shot and see what works. Keep us posted so we can learn from experience.

Lesson learned: Do not submerge jean's leather patch in Oxyclean water mix...the tan off of the leather bleeds crazily into the fabric. Zegna jeans ruined? We shall see...

Found some fun stuff today, 3 more slim fit small BB shirts from the same guy I got the other 5 from last week, ss madras, ocbd, and plaid. N/A


This awesome CT Black Label, Tailored Fit, club collar shirt with MOP's. I picked it up to trade because it says it's a 16.5 x 34 but fits me perfectly, so N/A.


And this bad boy, working Ronson Roto-Shine Magnetic shoe shine kit, with all the trimmings.





Which I don't really need, because I've got this:


But I couldn't just leave it there. Could I? devil.gif

Nice find! *jealous*
I had the urge to hit out that way yesterday, but was too wiped out to do a full circuit. All I found on my side of the city was a pair HF SC in 44 extra-long.
