Looking after your suit

A well looked after suit will last a long time. For complete satisfaction follow these basic care instructions to preserve your suit’s longevity.

  • Pockets, lapels and columns should be brushed frequently to remove dirt.
  • Stains should be blotted immediately not rubbed.
  • Creased garments recover well in a humid environment. Hang them somewhere damp and warm, such as a bathroom, or vaporize them lightly with water.
  • After use, allow your suit to rest; wearing the same suit for two days in succession can cause damage to the fibres.
  • To help maintain the shape of your suit always hang your jacket on an appropriate hanger that supports the shoulders and 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, however excessive dry cleaning can reduce the life of a suit.
