    un-trad?

    I never claimed to be a trad. Well, I sort of did once, but only partially trad, and definitely not Ivy League or Eastern.

    Douchey was not a poll option!






    (Should I add it?)

    Those shirts are nice. Seam allownces look well done, fabrics well selected. Bravo.

    That blue shirt seems ... familiar.

    http://www.oldnavy.com/browse/produc...070&pid=460570

    Not saying they're the same, as I have no way of determining that from the limited evidence at hand, and possibly would be unable to make a determination even if allowed to examine both garments in real life. I do, however, have dark suspicions...

    Ummm ... no comment.

    Your silence speaks volumes. But your words would be meaningless anyway.

    They look very good, although your choice of hangers is very questionable. [​IMG]

    Wait, you smell that?
    Based purely on seeing the hangers the AK shirts are on, do you really send them out for cleaning rather than using the laborious tutorial on shirt care on AK's website? I appreciate the labor of love, but if I'm going to even remotely afford an AK shirt, I need to be working, not spending 2 hours of care on each shirt!

    I did clean/iron them myself for a while, but it got old. I know another AK client who lives in my town. He said he tried all the cleaners and recommended what he thought was the best one. They do a nice job and hand press. AK himself has said (to me and this other client) that they have his seal of approval.

    I will take your word for it. Hopefully a 15+ page discussing on why this dry cleaner should be praised or not will materialize as so many here do not have first hand knowledge. Btw, if they lose one of your shirts I would not recommend suing them for millions.

    Does Big and Fat sell these, too? I know this insecure, obese guy who wants everyone to like him, can you help?
