A friend has this cool long wool beige coat that makes her feel like a secret agent. She loves to feel like a secret agent, so she wears the coat all the time and needs to have it cleaned every year. The big problem is its charming suede collar, the reason why no dry-cleaner in town wanted to touch it—it would end up being too expensive and not worth their trouble. But Fame Cleaners readily embraced the fabric-challenged garment for not much more than a regular dry-cleaning service ($28.95 to be exact), and kept its precious collar intact.
