Out to dinner and you notice a spot of vinaigrette on your tie, what do you do? No matter if your tie is Hermes, Tom Ford, Ferragamo, or Gucci your actions should be the same.
Jeeves asks you to resist the temptation of “do it yourself” stain removal. Most stains on ties can not be removed with water and the act of rubbing it with your napkin may cause damage to the fabric of your tie, which may not be correctable, even by Jeeves.
Ties are notoriously difficult to clean and many dry cleaners will not clean them, sending them out to experts such as Jeeves. Fragile dyes usually in bold colors, bias cut silk, hand-rolled and hand-stitch work can be challenging to say the least.
