    I hate incompetent tailors. I've had some terrible luck but luckily this has never happened to me. Sorry.

    Sutor, you rock.

    Y'know, Jesse addressed this on Put This On just this morning. I've fixed a couple, similarly.

    This thread lead to that post - it's mostly just a quote from Sator.

    I have done similarly with a steamer instead of an iron, though.

    your custom suit maker is also a drycleaner?

    He probably means spot-cleaning. Many custom suit makers will spot clean, sponge and press a suit.

    Pretty common with custom makers. The suit is cleaned by the drycleaner and pressed by the tailor.

    ^ that. And/or at least (my) tailors have access to/hire reliable dry cleaners who know how to dry clean and press a lapel appropriately.

    i was going to but, given it's murderous tendencies, thought it better to fedex the dillusional entree to the aforementioned tailor.

    Triumph, comrades! My closet is so tightly packed that my suits quickly lose their lapel rolls. Using Sator's advice, however, I restored the virility of my dinner suit in anticipation of a little shindig tonight. Check out the beautiful wave on this thing!
