    If it's a white shirt, you can mix baking soda and hydrogen peroxide together until you get a paste, and then scrub that stuff on with a toothbrush. You can also use OxiClean -- either by mixing it into a paste with water (like the hydro peroxide and baking soda), or by mixing it with more water and letting it soak with your shirt in a bucket.

    If your shirt is colored, you'll obviously want to test this carefully in an inconspicuous place. Underside of the hem or cuff or something.

    With both solutions, you should let the solution sit for a few hours. And when you're done, wash on the highest temperature allowable.

    Personally, I mix OxiClean with lots of water, and just let things soak overnight before washing. Usually does the trick

    RFT: Online shops are great, but there's something special about brick & mortars. Just the ability to thumb through new things and try stuff on. It so much easier to discover things that way.

    Feel jealous that NYC has so many great stores. San Francisco has some good ones too, but I wish we had more.

    I try to get the same feeling by browsing all, or by new arrivals.

    LA has better stores than NYC, generally.

    If it's a white shirt, you could try blueing.

    Need some more "anti fit" pants in a winter weight (looking for wool/tweed etc).
    I've bern wearing Dana Lee stock chinos and W+H Tokyo chino a lot, but they are all relatively lightweight cotton. Any body got any leads or brands I might check into? Just loose thigh, longer rise and a real aggressive taper
    I know people ask a lot for pants that will fit their gargantuan thigh, I'm just looking for non-slim pants with a taper and with more substantial fabric for the winter months.
    Nonnative? EG don't seem to have much of a taper, or is that not true? Found some nice Lemaire but they a bit more than I'm looking to spend.

    Been looking at almost exactly the same thing, SP has a schneider trouser, zam barrett minimalist jeans, different aesthetic but roughly same fit. I don't think EG has anything but I'm not looking for cargos.

    I been wearing a pair of Aros Chinos from Norse Project, they are a looser fit with taper. My size 33 have a leg opening of 7 inches. They are heavy and well built. Caught them on sale at End for around 80 USD. Not bad.

    Barena has a high rise pant called Braghier Bullo that is high rise, roomy thigh and big taper (Size 48 / 38 has 13 thigh, 7 leg opening I think)

    They should come in heavier wools / tweeds but outside of ordering a bunch from yoox not sure how you would get them

    Aros definitely aren't loose/relaxed in the thigh. Unless they have completely changed the cut since last FW they are pretty damn slim.

    Thanks, I'll take a look. All of the looser Barena's I've come accross seem to have cuffed ankles.

    I have a DAKS blazer and a cashmire overcoat (marvellous charity shop find) that I have had more than 10 years. Neither show much wear.

    "Recovering fashion designer John Galliano has said his comeback will be “bigger and better” than before — and sources tell Page Six it will be with Maison Martin Margiela.

    "Galliano has secretly been in talks to start a haute couture line for Margiela, which was acquired by the Diesel brand in 2002 and has been without a creative director since 2009, after its founder, Belgian designer Martin Margiela, left the business. But Galliano’s rep says he’s in talks with a number of brands, and there’s nothing official with Margiela."

    Galliano battled severe bouts of anti-semitism, but with a supportive sponsor, and 12-step program, is well on his way to a full recovery.

    ... I thought Blazy was the head designer at Margiela (officially or not)

    head designer and creative director are two separate titles, even if the roles can overlap. blazy is the head designer, but I don't think anyone technically holds the position of creative director at the moment.

    edit: Margiela has also made a point of not highlighting any one individual designer, saying instead they're a collective. Not having a creative director was in keeping with that. if they hired Galliano as creative director it would be a big departure from that since 1. they would now have a visible acting head, and 2. it would be a very visible acting head in Galliano—basically a total 180 from their previous MO.
