9 Easy Tips to Keep Your Suit Looking Great

There is something very satisfying about bucking today’s throwaway trend and enjoying luxuries that are built to last. Like anything, if you give your suit a bit of TLC it will pay dividends. A tailored suit is a wise investment and these simple tips can really make a difference to its lifespan.

  • Pockets, lapels and collars should be brushed frequently to remove dirt
  • Blott stains immediately rather than rubbing them in
  • Creased garments recover well in a humid environment. Hang them somewhere damp and warm (such as a bathroom) or spray them lightly with water
  • After use, allow your suit to rest. Wearing the same for two days in succession can cause damaged fibres
  • To help maintain the shape of your suit always hang your jacket on an appropriate hanger that supports the shoulders. Always hang your trousers vertically
  • Avoid placing items in your pockets as this will put strain on the seams
  • Unbutton your suit jacket before you sit down to avoid pulling
  • Store your suit in a breathable garment bag for protection
  • Have your suit dry cleaned at least once a season (but remember excessive dry cleaning can reduce the life of a suit)

Follow these tips and you will look sharp in your suit for years to come. Enjoy!
