I had good success with a blue shirt with a small amount of Shout spot treater with some Clorox2 (basically a liquid form of Oxyclean) and an old toothbrush.

Yeah, it's crazy! I think I'd just go stand on the side of the highway with my arms out waiting for someone to throw me a bag of money.

And damn Xenos!

Last time, I threw in 2 shirts, mind you one was light and the other one was dark, due to me being super lazy. Bam! A week later, stains gone and no color bleed! Maybe I was lucky? Well, we'll see this time. I got a light blue Gitman Bros. and a dark HF shirt mixed in one...Will report the results in at least 3 days.


Good for you, but I wouldn't chance it. I ruined a light-green RLPL polo when I mixed colors. Can't say for sure if it was mixing shades or something else, but it never happened when I did all whites together or other shades separately.

Relax, smart money says this'll take care of itself. Those jeans at that price are going to languish, then languish, then when they're finished languishing, they are going to languish some more. SA around here goes through this every couple years or so, jacking prices, then putting them back where they were when stuff doesn't move. It's happening now, with nothing-special overcoats getting marked at $20 or more and BB OCBD's at the $6 level, and the racks are starting to groan. Saturdays, when that week's color tag goes to 49 cents, can get pretty crazy, and eventually they catch on and realize they're letting stuff go for 50 cents that would've brought in ten times that amount if they hadn't been greedy on the front end. End of the day, the grail stuff is so few-and-far between that it doesn't make up for the run-of-the-mill stuff that doesn't move because it's overpriced, and they never, ever seem to be able to figure out what's good and what is not, sayeth the man who walked out with yet another pair of Red Wing boots today for $3 in 6D that have "Japan" written all over them.

Regarding the tie stains and since you have asked:
Quote:
Here is what you do with a stained tie, although I do not recommend for anything valuable and the color changes somehow:

If the stain is bad, saturate whole tie with Shout. (some say vinegar)
Cutting board in a large sink, water lukewarm.
Put the tie on cutting board and wash it in segments with Woolite. The segment washed should always be on cutting board flat. Rinse thoroughly and move on to next segment. Make sure tips still look like tips, and sides like sides by using your hands in a swiping motion, and a little pulling and tugging.
once you are done, make sure you rinse it throughly again, shape it while wet, wrap it in a towel- still flat- and get the extra water by dabbing towel. Then dry it flat on a towel. Do not hang. When dry and the color still looks usable :-) put two pieces of flat aluminum/metal thin stick -quarter inch-, whatever- you can find them in Lowes or I use the ones I got from old windscreen wipers- they are inside the rubber- in each side of the tie. Put an ironing linen on the tie, preferably damp but not wet. Iron with medium iron. Those sticks prevent edges from going flat.
As an alternative spend 3 bucks and get it dry cleaned you cheap bas...:-))

Xenos finds Pesjek level stuff. Incredible.

Also shout-out to GMMCl for excellent trade, and nice thrift meet. I got some of the best suits that I own now ( ones that fit!) Next time let's get coffee, too.

regarding the clothes maintenance discussion I have another question is it possible to shrink the neck on garments? I have a 16.5 extra slim fit brooks brothers french cuff with a spread collar and a great pattern and long enough sleeves but it is way to big for my 15.5 neck, is there anything I can do?

uhm it says you have a 15.5 neck as well patch[1].gif I would prefer not to trade or sell it since it was a gift from my dad because he didn't realize it was extra slim fit and it didn't fit him, also if anyone finds skeet blankets in xl my dad would probably buy them from you facepalm.gif

No. But wait. You are going to gain 15lb in your freshman year in college. And I like you but hope you don't make it to a school in CT. Competition here is bad enough.
