This week’s question comes from Phil on Myspace (yeah that’s still going!).
Phil Asks Ash:
I’m a travelling salesman who is on the road most of the week. Unfortunately, this means I’m living out of a suitcase and by the end of the week all of my clothes are wrinkled to bits. By Thursday and Friday I look like a Womble’s hanky and my sales are suffering as a result. Any advice on how to keep my clothes looking as crisp as your smart Franks uniforms?
Dear Phil from Myspace,
Firstly fair dues for still using myspace. Your loyalty to a social network from the 1960’s is extremely impressive. Secondly, The Franks understand all too well how a wrinkly shirt can damage your reputation. Over the years we’ve played many gigs in a row which necessitated expert apparel folding and packing. As a result we developed a patented “Frank’s Fold”- a tried and tested folding technique. To prove how easy it is to complete I drank a bottle of whiskey and filmed the “Franks Fold” after the Manchester Academy gig with Carter USM.
