    Thanks to AHarris on the corduroy care. I was able to restore the blazer using a heavy duty steamer, a cleaning brush, and some sweat equity.

    I picked up a horsehair/nylon 4inch brush from the cleaning section at Target. It seemed the least abbrasive of the lot, but stiff enough to work with the wade wale cord.

    So, now I want/need a proper clothes brush. Haven't seen many offered in most retail shops in St. Louis. Any recommendations out there?

    Thanks

    Youy want to buy a Kent brush. They have the royal warrant. You can see their catalog at www.kentbrushes.com. You'll have to call them or email them in England to get the name of their US distributor. It is a small comapny in Florida, but I forget their name. I have two Kent brushes, one for suits and one specifically for cashmere.

    I have a lint roller and some kind of brush thing that's more of a fuzzy pill picker. I reckon the latter's good enough for my overcoat.

    Also, neither cost me $60. Ouch.
