So you think your suit
needs dry cleaning? Think again!
How would you like to be submersed in a liquid for 20 minutes
and then spun around until you have no life left? You wouldn’t,
so I suggest you treat your suits the same way.
One of the biggest factors in shortening the life of a
suit is unnecessary dry cleaning. Our recommendation would
be to dry clean your suit no more than 3 or 4 times a year,
assuming that you don’t change the motor oil, cut
the lawn or stain the suit. If your suit meets your favorite
food then immediately take it to the cleaners, but ask
them to try to clean the spot out rather than dry cleaning
the entire suit. it’ll save a lot of wear and tear
on your suit. Don’t try and remove the stain yourself,
leave that to the professional. Inform them of the type
of spot you have.
A few good tips on keeping your suits looking
• Store suits on the original hanger when not
being worn. Wide hangers keep the shoulders from
sagging. Wool has memory - wrinkles will hang out.
• Never button the suit jacket or zip the pants
while storing. This is the only time you can keep
your pants unzipped.
• Brush your suit after each wearing. It takes
off the surface dirt.
• Dry clean your suit no more than 3 or 4 times
• Find a reputable dry cleaner (you get what
you pay for).
• Always clean both jacket and pants together.
Colors may undergo subtle changes in the dry cleaning
• Request hand pressing of the jacket (lapels
need to be rolled).
