Hi everyone, thank you for reading How to care for your clothes with Suits Avenue
Today we are going to give some tips on how to care for your suit to get the best look for the longest amount of time!
- The first step to suit care is ROTATING them!
If you wear the same suit every day, all day long it will never give the fibres time to relax or air out. Using round, wood hangers will give the suit enough space for air to flow through, getting the smells of your every day out. It also helps keep the suit fitting nice and tight.
2. Keep very little in your pockets.
Do not overfill any of your pockets, inside or outside of the suit. Only carry your essentials, cash, business cards, debit/credit cards. If you overload your pockets it will eventually change the shape of the suit.
3. Brush your suit with a clothing brush.
This will extend the natural fibres in the suit and allowing it to last longer. It keeps the fibres up allowing it to breathe more.
4. Steam your suit regularly.
Steaming your suit opens up the fibres, removes stains and marks as well as the smells. Dry ironing your suit will push the fibres down trapping all stains and stenches.
5. Avoid the dry cleaners
Dry cleaners shorten the lifespan of suits. They use strong chemicals to treat the suits so they are clean. It is only necessary to take your suit to the dry cleaners if you absolutely cannot get the stain or smell out of your suit.
How to Pack a Suit:
Lay suit facedown on a flat surface.
