They usually come with a second set of fabric laces - did you check the box?
Hmmm threw the box out a long time ago, looked where I kept extra shoe laces and didn’t find a pair that’d fit, probably threw it out by accident…

Best containers/boxes in which to store off-season clothes overhead? I have space constraints that make a chest at the foot of the bed a little cramped and I’d rather not stow under my bed.

Not a very pretty solution, but I once interviewed a textile conservator who works with museums to preserve valuable artifacts made from textiles. She recommended using Tupperware bins and said they're as good as museum boxes. She also recommended putting a cotton sheet or pillowcase over the top before snapping the lid down. The bugs that feast on animal hair are different from the ones that snack on plant-based fibers. So if you're storing something like a stash of wool sweaters in a bin, bugs will have to get through that first layer of protection first.

STREET - 1987pfw (10).jpg



Forgot to mention for anyone interested, the old STREET issues have been digitized recently and can be purchased here (haven't bought any but it's legit)





thank you

I got loads of these big ones


Does the job but I'm sure tupperwear offer a better seal (and maybe sunlight protection)

They're great for stacking though, I'm literally surrounded by walls and towers of the stuff. Pretty sure I'll knock one over and die buried under it one day (aka live by the hoard die by the hoard)
