How to look after your suits?


We all are very protective about the things we possess specially when it comes to our cars and other expensive items, then why do we not look after our suits which showcases our image and personality.
Making your Custom-tailored Suits last should be a top priority, especially if you consider your clothes as investments.

No need to spend all your hard-earned dollars just for dry cleaning. My Suit Tailor will share a few practical tips and tricks, which will prolong the life of your suit by a few years.

1. Extra Pair of Trousers: Shopping from any store or online, the option of buying 2 pairs of Trousers with 1 Suit is rarely available, but when you get your suit custom tailored

you can take advantage of the option by ordering 2 pair of trousers with 1 Jacket, this is one of the best ways to prolong the life of your suit by 2-4 years. We mostly tend to remove our Jacket when at work and only wear it when we have a important meeting. Whereas if you have 2 pairs of Dress Pants with the same Jacket You can wear them both alternatively to get the maximum use of the Suit.

2. Dry Cleaning: Dry cleaning more often decreases the life of your suits.

Suits must be Dry cleaned 2-3 times a year. The chemicals used in Dry cleaning more often damages the fabric of the suit and after a year the Fabric tends to become shinny and loses its newness. Instead of regular dry cleaning get your suits steam ironed.

Dry Cleaning the Suits

Your suits are not your typical shirts jeans or t-shirts that can withstand regular ironing. The suits are made of wool fabrics and the jackets are lined which makes them delicate Suits must be properly cared for and will last longer when it’s just steam ironed.

        The good news is not all companies require a dress code (and if yours is one of them, you’re in luck). A more casual attire in the workplace gives employees a chance to express themselves with their personal style. Just make sure not to go overboard with colours and patterns. Remember, what you wear can make an impression on your superiors. Make sure your clothes are still decent, office-worthy, and neatly pressed. When it comes to workplace attire, it’s best to consult with your HR department so you have a better grasp of what to wear on a daily basis. What matters is keeping a professional style in accordance to office policies.
