    Steaming will not hurt your shirts. Washing will not hurt your shirts. Professional laundering might hurt your shirt buttons. Dry cleaning a cotton shirt boggles my mind.

    Who does that? I may have misspoken but I don't think anyone does that.
    Yes, the shirt pressing machines come down pretty darn hard on the shirt and the buttons, hence the breakage. Also the heat from the press machines will cause the buttons to crack as well. But no dry cleaning cotton shirts. That's just...weird.

    And a lot of misinformed people think they do it but don't realize, thankfully for them, the "dry cleaner" is in fact just laundering their garments.

    Could not fine a nice pin striped brown shirt. Did pick up a light blue gingham and a broad gray striped shirt. Will have those in about a week or so. Stopped by B&T for the forward fitting. Their pattern alignment is superb. They also had a beautiful wool-linen blend fabric from Holland Sherry on special ($200 for a jacket length of the fabric + labor cost at $1300). I would have jumped on it had I not just gotten in some blue houndstooth. Also, the fabric was very fuck you (mid blue with brown fancy windowpane) and not something I could wear more than a few times a month. Fuck. Damn it. I want it.

    I don't know which part of Taxes you're moving to but I'd buy as much as I could while you're there just in case all you're going to have are Wal-Marts.

    Already have something very similar

    I intend to. Though I plan on using Luxire for shirts, I think.
