Vintage Clothing reeking of cigarettes, what do I do with them?

Is there a relatively cheap (i.e. non-dry clean) way to get years of cigarette smoke out of somewhat sensitive vintage clothing (i.e. silk, wool, fur)? I see a lot of weird suggestions online but has anyone here had to go through this and what's the best solution? Also, what is the most ethical way to either sell or donate fur? Some context below in the break. [more inside]

Used Clothing in Kyoto

Where can I find places in Kyoto to shop for used/vintage clothing? In Tokyo, I love going to Harajuku and wandering around their used/vintage clothing shops with random old items, like Kinji for really cheap and unique clothing. Is there a similar like place in Kyoto? I've spent 3 days in Kyoto in the past and all I recall for shopping were department stores and other Big Generic Imposing Chain Shops that you can find anywhere else in the world. [more inside]

Vintage clothing repair in Toronto? Lace, embroidery/brocade?

I am a vintage dress freak and have a handful of dresses that need some TLC - ripped lace and a few pieces with gold stitch embroidering (sp?) are getting really worn out. Any suggestions for a place in the GTA who could handle a range of vintage clothing repair needs? TIA

Modern WW2 style clothing designer

Looking for a UK clothing designer's website I saw a few years ago. As well as making tweed jackets and other garments, they had another "arm" of the business that specialised in vintage looking, quirky, World War 2 era replica work clothing that was trendy and quite pricey rather than historically accurate, as well as vintage kitchen and garden tools.

Please help me find shirts which are interesting not just for their pattern!

It would be great if people could share their favourite suppliers/retailers/tailors for affordable, quality shirts. I'm talking about shirts which are either interesting, different or vintage. I'd be especially keen on those with detachable collars - this was in fact the reason for my asking the question. [more inside]
