    I was thinking of other measures since airing out hasn't made any noticeable change, I'm looking for entry-level radical solutions.

    I lot of denim guys swear by freezing to get rid of smells, but that has more to do with bacteria. Who knows could help?

    A little bit of Febreze unscented fabric refresher has worked for me. Unless silk is involved.

    Those Canali shirts are fairly recent, good scores. And the Eton shirt is a decent pickup, they flip pretty well from what I've seen.

    can't tell if that pants sheen is from dry cleaning, or on purpose

    EVER ever? After all the shiz I've seen from you, it would have to be ONE HELL of a day.

    Random vicuna google search yielded this from the Reading Eagle (Reading Pennsylvania)

    Fresh air is good. Sunshine is good. But be careful, you do not want to discolor the garment.

    Freezing actually preserves bacteria.

    Well that was sudden. Got a call from the interviewer today to bump my interview up to tomorrow morning. Grabbing a drink with my connection tonight, then head home to polish some shoes and pick an outfit.

    On another plus, picked up a pair of vintage J&M Shell Moc tassel loafers this morning before work. In pretty rough-ish shape, but the uppers are still whole, just in need of some VSC and some TLC.
