    I have a bespoke jacket with a stain on it and will be in SF for a week. Any suggestions on a dry cleaner who can handle something like this?

    Alex's. They're in Marin, but pick up from the city with next day delivery.

    Off the hook:
    Lakeside French Cleaners San Francisco, CA 2660 Ocean Ave, San Francisco, 415-753-3790
    Its out in the Avenues. They are do a lot of wedding dresses and are highly regarded.

    BUT, the better Hotels in San Fran will never let you down if you use their service. Hotel backed dry cleaning is pricy but you won't regret it.

    FYI, Four Seasons uses Alex's in Marin. Considerably less expensive to just call them directly.

    Peninou is expensive but I've had good experiences with stain removal. Not so with Lakeside.

    Bumping this thread since I have a similar question.

    Looking for a good dry cleaners in the bay area. Alex's is an option but since I don't live in the city, the turnaround time would be a whole week.

    Has anyone ever used GreenStreets Cleaners? (http://greenstreetscleaners.com/index.html) Apparently voted best dry cleaners of the year by the SF Chronicle

    What about clothes that aren't needed immediately?

    Will, is it really worth it to send your suits abroad? And how much is it, more or less?

    TIA
