just bought this shirt and it had me wondering how deep is too deep in terms of the neck? i don't necessarily like how far it goes down on this one but i'm not sure, i don't generally wear polos and the like.

is dis junt uniqlo or smth? that size tag has me wondering >_> neck is slightly wonky but i dig. suitably ugly-ish. x_x

I asked my tailor once and he said that you can replace the single zipper housing with a double one but then you would have to find the same brand and type of zipper to make sure it fits.

99 % of the time the single zippers aren't also made in two way incarnations.

Much easier just to replace the whole zip like Lendo said, quicker and probably cheaper

Any leather experts here?
Want to try and get smells out of a Rick leather (both lining & leather)
Don’t really know if I should trust a dry-cleaner’s

Point taken.

Any recommendations for leather-specialists in the bay area?

This would have worked better if it was winter - but hang it outside, in the shadow of the sun for a couple of days and night. The air will simple clean it naturally. - Best if you're living outside of a big city!

doing that at the moment but want to find some alternatives in case it doesn't work

I did that with another leather and this jacket would probably fit me better if I threw it in the wash too but I'm a bit hesitant with this piece. (+ don't want wavy zips)

Have you tried the freezer method??

 

Throw it a large ziplock bag , tape it shut for extra  security then leave it in there for a day or two..

Hang outside to get warm again.

theory is the freezing kills the germs and the breeze outside blows them from the garment

 

I did it with a satin dinner jacket once that was smelly of smoke and it worked really well..

Dunno if it will work for leather.

 

If it doesn't consult a leather cleaning specialist especially because it's a lamb that has undergone some work..

Maybe the folks at RO can help out?

They are always really nice with my girl when she tries to locate something or  has sizing q's..

Hammered Lamb Intarsia

 

Try hanging it outside for a week or so (or maybe even more), away from sun and rain.. If that doesn't work I would consult a leather cleaning expert.

Good luck!

Regarding the help your gf gets from RO - Can they also help you out with finding older Rick collections if you're looking for something specific?

alright, the jacket was hung inside-out for ~6 days and was still smelling under the pits so I tacked a few dryer sheets on the problem areas and let it sit for another 5-6 hours.  After that I gave the lining a good rub with the same sheets.  The odor seems to have gone away and hopefully the solution isn't just temporary.  Just gonna let it sit outside again for one more night.

As for proxies, I'm pretty sure 1 9 9 3 uses sutocorp, and he certainly buys a fair amount of Lad

didn't realize tenso had a service fee in relation to package weight. prices look good.

 

i use fromjapan and i'm not sure why you'd go with any other (suto, sharp, stylistics, etc.) who all charge 8-15% when fromjapan is 5% and has real-time bidding.

 

seems like the more you pay, the less you get.
