I'm not so careful, gents. If it's hand-wash what's prescribed I'll do just that with an appropriate soap (or machine in wool cycle if there are enough wool garments to fill the machine), but delicate or not, ironing is the same for all (I iron most of the clobber at home, maybe that's why I try to keep it simple). The trick for me is rotating evenly the clothes I wear, so tops don't get abused.

Sounds like a sensible approach to me . I dunno about buying handwash only items , l think l would skip buying such an item,  l simply don't have the time for that palaver.
As far as liquid detergents go , most of them (yup even the baby ones) contain a harsh product called sodium laureth sulphate.  I did try a Canadian wool liquid soap but at 11 per litre l went back to snowflakes but don't put too much in the drum or you get lather everywhere  8)

Sodium laureth Sulphate, is in most products but unless you have a skin condition, your be fine, if not wear gloves 🧤

It is garage floor cleaner( google it) , gets in most supermarket soap products , it is as cheap as chips and it can cut through your skin . Hence l have not put it on my skin for decades . .

Could we find a way to y'know......get it inside the fight the virus?

Very true, the coke destroyed his mind I remember seeing him with Roy Castle on TV, Roy couldn't get a sentence out of him, he was done. But a big inspiration for you, until you meet your heroes then the dream dies.

Tae be honest ah widnae huv wanted tae talk tae Roy Castle either.  Or his pals the creepy McWhirter twins.

Obviously most of this is a tad "rockabilly rebel" for tastes on here, but a couple of 'maybes'...?

Some decent polo shirts in that collection.

Most of the sta-prest are decent. .if you don't like the quality you may send them back but l feel l have had my moneys worth from them. I have never had to have a Relco pair of trousers altered however , some of our parish should probably size up .

I would concur that the shirt will not be DNA quality but it is not DNA prices either . Personally when it comes to shirts l would pay the extra bucks and get the DNA shirt

Actually with Relco, I've had to size down from what I normally buy from DNA. Other than that, the quality is what I expect for the price, it's not so much the way they're made but the material is cheap-ish. You won't worry about ruining them.

I'd rather get me a pair of, say, JtG sta-prests, decent price and decent quality.

Indeed,  however my JtG sta-prest have always necessitated a trip to the tailor to have the hem done which is not a bad thing , it is just additional cost and a hassle especially now when the tailor is on lock-up as wee Jimmy Crankie seeks to extend her draconian laws further into the future

Stick oan a Dominic Cummings mask n' get them altered in Durham.
