If you’ve ever wondered, “What’s the deal with the paper cover Shaffer’s put over the shoulder area of your garments?”, we’ve got the answer for you.

If you are looking for a perfect gift for someone this Mother’s Day, think about telling them you’ll take them to Talbots on May 11th, and 10% of your purchase will be donated to the American Lung Association.

As always, if you have any questions or comments, – just ask us.

Take care,

Insider Tips

Protect Your Clothes

Protect Your Clothes


When storing your hanging clothes, in addition to making sure everything has first been dry cleaned or laundered, you also want to make use of the white paper covers we place over your garments.
While you want to remove our plastic bags (they trap moisture and inhibit air circulation), you want to use the paper covers to protect shoulder areas from settling dust, light damage and dye sublimation.

White Tuxedo Etiquette- When is White Right?

 
When considering white you should keep in mind that (1) it is ideal in Tucson because it is strictly warm weather wear  (2) suit separates, featuring different colors, will visually divide a man in half (3) white adds weight, so is most flattering to the tall and slim body type.  You can never go wrong by sticking with the classic all-black tuxedo.
Remember too, that the white dinner jacket is a less formal alternative to traditional black tie. Under the strictest fashion rules however, its use should be limited to the tropics, summer months and open-air formal events.  For those among you who adhere to the strictest dress formality, as Esquire magazine once opined, a white jacket should never be worn in the city “unless one has a napkin over his arm or a saxophone up to his lips”.
For more information on making the right choices – neckwear, footwear, fabric, finish, designer details, accessories… go to Black Tie Guide.

While watching the most recent James Bond movie, I was struck by the character’s white dinner jacket, and wondered under what circumstances it was the ‘right’ choice.

I remembered Bogart’s wearing one in the classic movie Casablanca almost 75 years ago and realized that over the years we’ve seen a bevy of actors from William Holden in Sabrina to Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones, as well as every single James Bond, strut in white’s sartorial splendor.

But when is a white dinner jacket the right choice?We have some tips for you about what to consider when making a decision about white or not. 

As always, please ask us any questions or share any comments you might have.

Next to Fashion Week, the Oscars are one of the most fascinating fashion shows around, and this year was no exception.   Go here to check out the big trends (color, style, hair, jewelry, make up, etc) that emerged.


Like Fashion Week, the Academy Awards’ red carpet gives us an insight into what we can expect our clients to be wearing to charity galas, proms, weddings and other formal gatherings in the weeks and months ahead.


This year, Vogue, Harpers Bazaar and other pundits deemed the 3d gown worn by Cate Blanchette to be one of the best dresses on display.  We must agree that it is truly lovely, and we’re delighted that we already have the protocol and processes in place to handle such beautiful and delicate workmanship.


If you find yourself considering such a garment, keep in mind that the feathered appliques were sewn on – not glued- a hallmark of the quality and workmanship,  that you should look for in your purchase as well.


As always, if you have any questions or comments about the care of formal fashions, please ask us.  If you have a moment, vote for your red carpet favorite from this year’s Oscar ceremony and check out the popular results, too.

Hope all is well in your world!

Take Care,

During this special time of year, we urge you to  take advantage of the opportunities you have to spend time with loved ones, have real conversations and enjoy authentic moments.

Have a good time this holiday season, and remember, we’re here for you if you need us.

Be sure to scroll down for our caveat about the dangers presented by the perfume hawkers that haunt the stores every holiday season.

 


Hope to see you soon. 

Take care,

perfume spritzer caveats


Beware the Store Spritzers


It’s the holiday season and that means it’s time to hit the stores and do some shopping. It also means that navigating the perfume department has many of us bobbing and weaving to avoid the ‘spritzer people’ who are bent on spraying wary shoppers with a sample of the latest fragrance on the market.

If you are one of those people who welcome the chance to check out a new scent – here’s our warning to you… make sure to keep the fragrance away from your clothes.

Alcohol is a basic ingredient in virtually any scent, and alcohol can remove or disturb clothing dyes.  So sample if you must – but take steps to protect your coat, jacket, etc from contact with the fragrance.


When applying perfume at home, do so before getting dressed and give the scent plenty of time to dry before donning your clothes, and NEVER spray your scent directly onto your clothes.

 

As always, if you have any questions or comments, please ask us.

Hi Kim –


We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day, and that the coming holiday season is filled with fun and good times spent with friends and family.


There’s no doubt that you’ll be spending some time in stores in the days to come, and that you’ll probably be buying a garment for either yourself or as a gift.  While we don’t want to ruin your joy, we wanted to remind you that you want that item to have a long and useful life.  That means you want to take a moment, check the care label and think twice about any garment that reads:  SPOT CLEAN ONLY or DRY CLEAN EXCLUSIVE OF ORNAMENTATION.   These items are inherently unable to withstand standard professional or at home care.  Unless it’s true love, avoid them at all costs.

Take care.  See you soon.
Happy Holiday,

Bake, Patricia and the Shaffer Dry Cleaning Team

Dressing Up for the Holidays –
An Important Tip


It’s that time of year when parties abound and the opportunities to ‘dress up’  are more than at any other time of year.

When you’re deciding what to wear, keep in mind that the silks, satins and loosely woven fabrics you’re donning are very fragile and extemely susceptible to snags and abrasion.

Be especially careful with crystal and other encrusted accessories and jewelry (prongs, charms, etc).  The simple act of placing your evening bag on your lap could result in a slight, but unsightly and irreversible abrasion that could ruin the look of your outfit.
