sent in a vintage vest that he had acquired on-line for
a themed event he and his wife are planning to attend.
As is usual for many vintage items sold on-line, the item was
sold "as is" - musty, dingy and stained.
Aside: It never fails to amaze me how many vendors sell vintage
items that have not been properly cleaned prior to the offering. I
always see items described as "one or two minor spots; any dry
cleaner should be able to remove these spots." Or, "great looking
piece; requires a little refreshing." Here's the problem: once the
garment is examined by a dry cleaner who specializes in vintage
garments or once the restoration process begins,
many deficiencies in the garment are exposed. Yet another reason why you should buy
vintage that has already been cleaned and restored.
Anyway, back to the vintage vest. It came out beautifully -
brilliantly white and stain and odor free.
Here are some photos that reflect that transformation:
