    Pardon me if this a dumb question, but here goes. I just purchased a nice Zegna dress shirt with one flaw--a chest pocket. I never use the pocket, so I'd just as soon remove it if possible. Would it work just to remove the pocket, brush the cloth where the seams were, and launder it a few times?

    Probably a question for shirtmaven. I wouldn't try it, myself. If you don't like the pocket, don't use it!

    There was a thread over at AA where a few members said that they'd done so with success. But, one member told of a fiasco.

    Should be okay with a new shirt. Take it off, brush it with a toothbrush, and laundering will do the rest.
