    Have to see if you have any fabric to let out. Take it to a tailor to find out.

    It isn't extremely important where you hang them out. All the location affects is the dry-time. In a humid climate, things will dry out faster indoors. If it is windy outside, however, things will dry faster out of doors rather than in doors. Unless you have a time crunch, don't worry about the location.

    Any idea where I can find a nice pair of gray (ideally mid-gray) wool gloves with brown suede palms? A nice lining would be a bonus.

    The closest pair I've found so far has been the Woolrich John Rich & Bros Wool and Leather Gloves on Park and Bond: http://www.parkandbond.com/product/84423979 But not only are they sold out, I know for a fact that they're actually navy plaid, not "dark charcoal."

    It helps if you spin them in the washer to get most of the water out. I lay them up against the outer wall of the basket as smoothly as I can, and pull the knob with the other hand.

    I hang upside down with about 5 or 6 clothespins across the cuffs (don't fold the cuffs over the line), and dress out the creases and waistband with my hands. Sometimes I don't even need to iron them.

    haha... I just found it interesting to qualify the target as primarily women! I guess it depends on what kind of pix ...you may have to take this over to DT... in the meantime.... :lurk:

    Check it out: I've got me a sweet royal(ish) blue suit that I'm gonna be sporting in a couple of days at a wedding...

    I've worn it before with black wheels, white shirt and a lighter, sky(ish) blue tie...

    But i'm trying to work sum sweet dark(ish) brown shoes into the mix...

    Am I any chance?

    FYI: It's summer here in Aus...
