+1....didn't know they made flesh colored pocket squares.
+1, and the shirt pictured is probably not the one he is wearing in the photo.
Mannequin is one of my favorite movies. This made me laugh.
Been meaning to do these for a while.... FYI on the jacket I usually use two USPS bags (not a white one, but was in a rush and grabbed it).
Ok, so does anyone have a method for removing/covering etching in leather? I recently picked up one of these in awesome condition: http://www.tumi.com/product/index.jsp?productId=4063128&prodFindSrc=paramNav, but it has "State Farm" plus the logo very faintly etched (?? - I think...it almost looks like a clear-colored decal. Actually, I should check when I get home to see if it's something just on the surface. I'll take pics then too). I guess you won't know exactly what I'm talking about until I take pics, but does anyone know what I'm talking about based on the description?
^ Could you cover with a brass plate?
After 5 thrift stores today I failed to find the leftover NWT Kiton ties...
Hmm. Not a bad idea. Any idea where I could find something like that? It's in one of the bottom corners, so the actual location would be perfect for a brass plate.
A luggage shop should be able to do it.
Embossed? You might be able to work embossing out by wetting the leather and bending it back and forth over the embossing. It'll take some time and you'll want to condition the leather after wetting it, but you can work the embossing out.
Woah, even better. Awesome, I'll give it a closer look when I get home to see if it is actually embossing and give this a try. Thanks a ton guys.
Good on ya! In the tie packing gif, all you do is cut the envelope in two, then wrap that in paper and write the address on the paper?
Tie gets wrapped in tissue paper, goes into a USPS Tyvek bag (cut in half), then a USPS Legal Flat Rate Envelope for rigidity (cut in half), then into a white poly bag (cut in half). You can write the address on if you want, but I print out all of my shipping labels with tracking from ebay and just tape them to the top of the white poly bag with 3 pieces of the large 2"? clear packing tape to cover the label (waterproof).
im debating whether i should make this my avatar
