    How are you going to clean it? The Hermes I just picked up has one spot on it and I'm trying to figure out if I should dry clean or try to spot clean.

    That's only true for silk prints, not knits/woven, AFAIK.

    Ugh. For so long, SO SO LONG (~9 months now) I've been looking for some Walnut Strands or Sanfords in my size (12D). Seen close, but they're never quite big enough . Ugh why couldn't those be 12 or 12.5? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I've seen my fair share of these being as these were made (as you stated) in St. Paul. A friend of mine used to work at a HiFi shop in Roseville (suburb boarding St. Paul) that sold these back in the 70's and they were the bee's knees. If I remember right, those are the bookshelf (or similar size) model. There were also 1 1/2, 2 and 3. 3's were the biggest. If you can't get the tweeter figured out, there's a speaker repair shop that sort of specializes in DLKs as they are located in Roseville as well. You can ship in parts to have them serviced.

    Nice find!

    How does this get to a thrift store? 93% cashmere, 7% silk. Still has the tags and basting stitching on the vents. $1900 and never worn. Phone pics tonight, but I'll post better ones tomorrow once my camera battery charges. The actual color is a pale blue with a green overcheck. 46L and available.

    I found one website but it'll cost like 15 bucks shipped, which seems excessive. Found a great schlesinger brothers bag today but it just needs this repair :/

    You could thrift a western shirt and harvest the snaps off it. Can they be re-used? Probably too small anyway.

    Hands off! :fence: PM sent!

    As far as Ebay is concerned, at the risk of jinxing myself, I've had decent luck with only rare requests for returns/refunds, most of which I've been able to avoid with polite explanations or even some creativity with partial refunds. (Of course, I also sell extremely low volume) So I opted to go with the 14 day return policy. But I'm keeping an eye on it; if it generates a lot of crappy returns, I'm reversing course.



    SO: NOBODY HAS A METHOD FOR TREATING STAINS IN WOOL??!!
