Cleaning spin cycle shoes (these were really gross!)

Being the clean freak that I am, my gym gear is constantly laundered. If I could, I’d wash my shirt halfway through a workout.

But until recently, I’d completely overlooked the need to freshen up the shoes I wear to spin – until, that is, my housekeeper identified a terrible odor emanating from my spin bag.

The reek that’s been creeping up in those spin shoes was unreal.

Now, unfortunately, we don’t have before and after shots as usual, since the technology behind Smell-O-Vision isn’t quite perfected yet. But, I have got to tell you: These shoes came out awesome! I can actually stick my nose in them! The smell is completely gone and once again I can leave them lying around without offending my wife, kids, or employees in the office.

Thank you notes from clients at Meurice Garment Care

We love to get thank you notes here in the office. It’s always unexpected and a great feeling to come across mail that’s both handwritten and thoughtful. Of course, it goes both ways — we at Meurice send maybe a thousand of our own thank-you notes every year.





Olympic gold medalist Shaun White opens the NYSE — who’s he wearing?

On Feb. 23rd, ginger-locked gold medalist Shaun White was on hand in NYC to open the New York Stock Exchange. And when he needed the perfect western-style button down to ring in the market, he brought it to Meurice at 57th Street for alterations.

Sorry it’s a tiny picture, but we didn’t go to take photos with him — we had no idea where he planned to wear the shirt! Our tailor Jon really did outdo himself on this one; it’s a shame we can’t show it to you a little closer-up.

If you’d like to see Shaun’s photo album from his trip to Wall Street, the pics are all on his Facebook page. And, just because it’s hilarious, if you missed his appearance on the Colbert Report, you really owe it to yourself to have a look.
