Those would work. Grab me a pair while you're at it.
Hope everything is okay with you.
Thanks for the concern, fellas. It's my wife in surgery, but all will be good soon.
Hope all goes well.
Seajen, best wishes to you and yours
I haven't even been going to work recently because I've been sick. Hopefully that means tomorrow. I'm not that happy with my outfits in general though that said.
Hope it goes well SeaJen
G'day Sam, see answers in bold
Never seen a tie survive a stain? That sounds so grim. Maybe I should avoid ever eating while wearing a tie.
Thanks. The tie stain problem is dissapointing though. Wouldn't mind so much if I knew where on earth the stain had come from. It was fine one day when I put it on, then I'm sitting on the train and notice the mark on it. I'd not even eaten anything that day.
On the upside, gives me an excuse to buy a new tie.
The main issue is in the re-pressing after the stain comes out, dry cleaners can just never do it properly.
I should have included in my answers above as to the making in Italy, there are many many tie manufacturers in Italy that no one on SF has or will ever hear of that produce excellent work. As they are manufacturers there is no real desire to be a brand, like me or Capelli (who contracts manufacturing out too) or ET etc. Adamley just provide the silk. Hope that helps.
You can try alcohol, 91% rubbing alcohol. You've nothing to lose. Gently blot onto the tie and then press on a dry towel to draw the stain out. The alcohol (isopropyl) might have enough to draw out oils or soluble stuff. I did that, to reasonable effect, on a light colored tie with a gravy stain. Since yours is dark green, I think it might work.
I've also had luck repressing a tie by ironing over it gently with a thick-ish towel in between the iron and tie. It worked for a silk repp which didn't have any texture or 'stuff' to it.
On ties, I would love this copper color in a grenadine, grossa/prometeo. Any ideas where? This is a knit from Shibumi, but I take it a Sozzi.
This will be back in stock tonight sometime if it's close to the colour you want.
Pffffft, my GG St. Tropez mole suede loafers are cooler than cool.
Best wishes, buddy.
Noodles, buy Iron Heart Jeans and SNS Herning and Ini sweaters and be a smart casual king! You will need some awesome hefty boots too.
