    Shipping notification on the linen/cotton pants, now just waiting to hear on the fresco. Excited to see these in person.

    Bahaha

    The ironic part is, for how much hate he generates, I feel like I remember hearing somewhere that he’s actually super friendly IRL

    I got a notification on my polos. I switched sizes with Customer Services a few days ago, and that’s not reflected on my notification. Hopefully the updated size is in the box.

    Waiting on my frescos still.

    Haha you really want these!

    FYI they came VERY wrinkled so you'll need to steam them.

    Linen suit received. Will likely be a keeper. @spiermackay advice on dealing with shipping wrinkles? Does steaming by a shower work on linen, or do I need to get it pressed?

    It's linen. Wear it, it's going to wrinkle anyways. Shower steam won't work too well. It's not like a worsted wool.

    Leave it hanging for a day or two. Some of the wrinkles will give with gravity especially with the weight of this minnis linen. If you're still tempted to press it afterwards this may not be the fabric for you.

    No I know it'll wrinkle and rumple with normal wear. It's just got some weird hard creases from shipping (in places that don't usually wrinkle w/ linen garments, like vertically down the the sleeves and across the lapels).

    Wear wrinkles and shipping creases are very different. I suggest using a clothes steamer to get rid of the latter.

    LOL the factory stitched (rather than basted) the pockets shut again.

    Stuff the sleeves with a towel or something to prevent the material from laying flat then put your linen sheets over the suit cloth and iron with steam on high.

    I wouldn't directly iron the lapels ever. Just leave hanging and try a little shower steam to lighten the crease.

    Besides that, the natural wrinkles you get from wear will hide the wrinkles from the shipping.

    No worries. They’re going straight to my tailor for hemming. He always presses them for me.
