Only use light or no starch on your shirts. Avoid dry-cleaning unless absolutely necessary. Fine wools absorb and release natural oils, so there is no need to wash them.
Spot clean if needed by gently dabbing using cool water.
Never rub a stain.
Should a garment require a cleaning, be sure to use a quality professional cleaner. A dry cleaner should have an impeccable reputation in your area and be affiliated with The BBB and Professional Dry Cleaning Certification is a must.
Do not wear your garments more than two days in a row. The fibers and the shape of the garment need a rest.
After wearing your jacket, always hang them on a substantial wishbone hanger that supports the shoulders. Wire hangers break down collars. And don’t forget to hang your pants.
A garment requires a certain amount of space to breathe at all times. In the closet, leave a distance around the garment. Never leave them covered in plastic or vinyl.
Put your garments in breathable covers when putting away for the season. Include some form of insect protection such as cedar or lavender sachet.
Never store garments dirty. Look them over before storing them.
Properly hanging a suit in a steam filled shower-room will both freshen your suit and remove wrinkles.
