LIZ

Liz Claiborne which has dropped like a rock since Liz Claiborne may be finally getting it's act together . Their clothing lines had gone steadily down hill for years. They finally saw the light and have hired Issac Mizrahi to design for them .The stock has finally stopped it's freefall and maybe this will give it the boost it needs .


With Mizrahi in charge, Liz Claiborne appeals to 'perpetual 35-ness' - International Herald Tribune

I bought a lot of classic stuff for a song from one of their warehouse outlets. They are making the transition into casual retiree wear very easily. I'm thinking of investing in having one of the suede jackets dry cleaned. Got a $50.00 quote, what does it cost in your area?

Rub it in. That's it, they have a technique like that for cleaning it, no? Rub in some special ingredient and brush it?

In Florida, you leave your suede coat outside and the roaches water bugs pick it clean for you.

Corn meal. Dry, rub it in and then brush it off. Kind of tedious on a large jacket.

Yeah, tedious is why they want $50.
