    Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life and a day of memories you will cherish forever. Naturally, you wish to preserve those memories by keeping your gown as lovely as it was the day it was first worn. We try to make this process as easy as possible for you by offering a high quality, trusted, professional service.

Our highly trained staff have acquired many years experience cleaning and spotting delicate fabrics, beadings and trims. Our expertise in identifying the correct cleaning techniques for your gown sets Ferrari's apart from other cleaners.

    Cleaning Process
    Our cleaning process will be styled to suit your individual needs. Factors Involved Include:

    Insepection
    After inspecting your gown we will provide you with a detailed report outlining the cleaning process and conditon of the gown. We'll also outline any areas of risk or areas where we believe 100% stain removal is not possible. Only after we explain the process and the techniques required do we proceed with cleaning the gown.
    Hand Pre Spotting

    Where required, individual areas will be Hand Treated prior to cleaning to prevent material damage, discolouration or stains setting in.

    Cleaning
    All Gowns are then hand treated and hand dry-cleaned with methods tailored to each individual gowns characteristics. All cleaning is done with pristine, fresh solvent that's only used for cleaning wedding gowns. Where material allows, gowns will be hand wet-cleaned to prevent future ageing and oxidation of water based stains.

    Sigh...

    Still, at least it looks as though they are enjoying themselves!

    I saw one photo of a male MBFW attendee in the newspaper yesterday, and he looked as though he was wearing a Glad garbage bag for a shirt.

    David Jones sells Marcoliani, which doesn't answer your question but you might fluke a pair in there.

    Yes, limited range in Melbourne as well. Though I picked up a few nice pairs at $20 in the summer sale.

    HY used to have a larger range of Marcoliani-branded socks, but they're being replaced over time with the HY "house brand" socks.

    As you say, I believe that they are, in fact, made by Marcoliani as they include quite a few of the same patterns. Someone in the HY thread suggested that they might be made by Bresciani or another Italian sockmaker but I still think that it's likely that the HY socks are by Marcoliani simply because he had an existing business relationship with them and because the HY sock patterns are, in some cases, identical to Marcoliani sock patterns.

    Also, I've got a couple of pairs of the HY-brand socks as well as Marcoliani socks from DJs and from HY and they feel the same - the quality of the HY socks is good, in my experience.

    Actually, you are still mistaken.

    If you read the page you link to it states "However, handwelting has the advantage of being able to directly attach the welt to the insole without the use of the canvas rib that’s necessary for Goodyear welting. This allows you to use thinner layers of cork..."

    The key line being "this allows you to use thinner layers of cork", not that Meermin does use a layer of cork.

    They fit pretty narrow; similar to Carmina. But their New Rey last is uber uber uber narrow apparently narrower than G&G TG73 and Carmina Simpson so watchout if your planning on New Rey.
