Horace, where? Methinks they saw you coming -
I had them taken to place called Browns Cleaners in Santa Monica, California. Ah, the old CLothiing Doctor. I book marked your site, lost it, and now you repair spreading the cleaning gospel.

FWIW, while we're speaking about Broadway in the 80s in NYC, I just took some shirts to Landmark Cleaners, on Broadway off 85th, per a recommendation. I explained at length that I did not want the cuffs folded over, he laughed and said that that's always a problem, I said that he should make sure it's not going to happen, and, of course, today I got my shirts back with all the cuffs folded over. I'm not keen on giving Hallek $5 for a shirt, every single day. But my wife said, "It's worth it to me not to hear you moan all day long about your shirts getting messed up." We'll see.

Hm...I've never had a cleaner fold the cuffs over. They've always been ironed flat whether it be a cheap or expensive cleaner. Maybe I've been lucky. Say, did you take it up with the guy when you picked up the shirts?

I very often have this problem--if you don't say anything, they fold them over for you. Others have mentioned this in other threads. I always specify that they should be ironed flat. The shirts were delivered, or I would certainly have made a fuss at the time. At least they didn't inscribe them with my name, or their logo, or something.
