Just found a box of 40 ties stashed in back of a closet the from the beginning of my menswear thrifting. A lot of them are too embarrassing to mention, but there are 12 good pick-ups. I guess 30% success wasn't too awfully bad for a noob.  Even found a Sulka and a T&A in the mix.

Love me some T & A mwink[1].gif

I'm leaning Grenson and not masterpiece either. Not a bad price if they are for you though.

Has anybody tried "the method" on a kiton shirt? I'm kind of worried the little red dot on the tag will bleed out. Thanks in advance.

All you can barely see is a script without seeing the nails or pattern. Am I missing something?

 

I asked what they said on the bottom, "Custom Grade Made in England" between that and the heel pattern, I'm about 95% sure they are Church's.  I'm guessing you pull back the insole insert and that's what you will find.

How bad is it? When I have small spots or just collar staining that isn't too bad, I just apply a water/Oxy paste and let it sit for a couple of hours. Launder normally after that. I've had good results and definitely cuts the time down. Probably much less likely for the tag to bleed if you're just spot treating.

I've never had any issues (ie color loss) using the "method", but I also was never trying to remove a red dot.

I think eazy is trying not to remove the red dot.

My jaw dropped too. It was funny because the GF was nagging me when I first showed her and saying I don't need a tux etc etc but I promised I wouldn't buy it for too much and when it ended I had a giant grin on my face and showed her the price - all she said was "I still don't think you need it"

 

BTW to everyone, the measurements are close for me but not spot on, if it doesn't work I'll pass it along at cost so let me know if there's anyone who wants next dibs.
