Yup it's soaking in Oxyclean right now. I'm hoping to expand the range of shirts I pick up. Org's reweaving results are making me think about picking up MORE things with moth holes. That can't be good.

Do keep margins in mind. Even $40-50 in reweaving costs is only worth it if it's a high-margin item or if you're keeping it for yourself, generally.

+1... This is why I just posted three Harris Tweeds on Ebay. Not worth the money. Sooner or later, I'll find the one I'm after for myself that fits off the rack. smile.gif

 

 

On the other hand, I just handwashed an LL Bean sweater that I absolutely love and fits me perfect. That's worth the effort...

No man, not this one. It is exceptionally rare. The free floating is not canvas, it is actually smelted gold buillon that has been crafted into the form of a sateen, which is also the reason for the heaviness of the suit. In addition, the hand work was done by a 6 fingered man and the fabric comes from the highest point of the Sri Lankan mountains.

Don't worry, everyone is looking through our closets to find something for you.

Really though, you posted the same thing twice. Never mind that it's something that everyone is after (charcoal/navy suit) in an incredibly popular size (38).

Contemplated a nice Tom James suit that "almost" fit, but bailed on it.  I usually ignore furniture because pros pick over the stuff pretty well out here, but I was there when the truck arrived and saw this iJoy massage chair come off the back.  I wanted to get one of these new a few years ago after trying it at my chiropractor's office.  Well.. it was 50% off day -- and now I'm hoping that when my wife gets home, I don't get a beating for cluttering up the living room.  But if I do.. at least I have a massage chair to help the pain... :)

 

Still some darker spots from the cleaning I gave it, and man, does my back feel nice..
