    It's tough sometimes. It depends on what kind of stain it is. Oil stains are pretty much impossible.

    See one of my old threads for insights on cleaning suede. I pretty much pulled off a miracle with mine, though not sure how good GA suede is...

    But CdG does make womens clothing too, right? What's the deal with the x SNS? Any history there? I am woefully short on SW&D knowledge.

    Your guess is as good as mine.

    CdG does make women's clothes as well. The CdG Tricots blazer I picked up turned out to be women's as the Tricots line is a women's line.

    I'll have to try that. Those shoes should make some guy in Japan very happy because they sure as hell won't fit me.


    Do I even want to know in what bar your shoes took a bruising?

    Hmm... I thought that line had a slightly different name, but perhaps not.

    Being the world traveler I am, said incident happened near the sandy beaches of Youngstown, Ohio. Though I think it could easily have happened at any of the bars I frequent in Buckhead.

    Ain't no beaches in Murder City, USA. Be honest: were you dumping bodies in Meander Reservoir for the mob?

    Interesting snippet:

    [COLOR=FF00AA]Most Americans are thoroughly convinced there is another person in their direct vicinity who truly needs and wants our unwanted clothes. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Charities long ago passed the point of being able to sell all of our wearable unwanted clothes. According to John Paben, co-owner of used-clothing processer Mid- West Textile, “They never could.”[/COLOR]
