Hi there, I have a pair of grey wool slacks that I like very much (Bonobos Tiger Sharks, if you want to know), and recently took them to the dry cleaners. It was the second time they had been dry cleaned ever. I got them back the other day, and went to put them on this morning and noticed, to my chagrin, that the fabric feels scratchier, as if someone had magically (and evilly) downgraded the quality of the original wool, which when I got the pants was very soft and very fine. I have another pair of pants in black made from the same wool, and those came back from the same cleaners in the same batch absolutely perfect. Could this be a result of the perc? Maybe heat exposure from pressing? Don't know if this makes a difference, but the pants have a tiger-stripe silk lining that was unaffected. Regardless, I'd be very interested to know if there's a way to fix this. I was at the Bonobos sample sale the other day, and felt various pairs of the same pant that were there, and the wool definitely feels finer. Something must have happened to my pants. My initial thoughts is that maybe there's a very thin top layer of crappy material that came about as a result of whatever the dry cleaner did. I could try putting my sweater shaver on the gentlest setting and try shaving the top. Or I could try a lint roller or lint brush. My other thought was to give them a very gentle wet cold bath with a dab of Woolite, but since it's pretty nice wool with a silk lining, that sort of terrifies me. Any thoughts? I can post close-up pics if people want. Thanks!
