Suits and jackets are expensive investments in your wardrobe. These linen, leather, silk, and fancy yet delicate fabric items need to be rightfully preserved and maintained. Ignore caring for them and your investment in looking dapper has now faded, looks dull, is moldy in the humidity or something worse like infested with moths. A suit or a jacket is supposed to make you feel a million bucks, super confident, and (as we at DipDap love saying) Dapper! Here are 5 tips on how you can care for you:
Never stack your suits and jackets in a pile or let them wrinkle for long. Remember, if the more they wrinkle the more the need to smoothen out all winless and creases. Invest in good, sturdy hangers and hang your suits in your closet or wardrobe.
Stains on suits can be treated with a simple spot treatment or just getting rid of it as soon as possible. Dust and dirt can be brushed off. Wear your suit or jacket at least 2-3 times before dry cleaning it. Never wash them at home unless it's an emergency. If you are a frequent suit or jacket wearer, let the item air out a bit on a hanger before wearing it again.
Always. Never cut labels with instructions on them for any piece of clothing and especially on fancy and delicate items such as suits and jackets. Your linen, cotton, silk, polyester, and blended suits and leather, linen, denim jackets, all have different needs. And the manufacturer knows best. It helps us, at DipDap, clean your fabrics and preserve them better.
Never. Ever. Unless it's an absolute emergency and is only a one-time thing, never wash your suits and jackets in a washing machine. Dry cleaning them professionally is a gentle and safe way to preserve fabrics and elastics and make the suits last longer. A washing machine will distress the fabric and reduce its lifespan.
Lastly, if you aren't a frequent suit or jacket wearer, make sure you store your suits in fabric cases, in dust-free areas. The cotton or fabric case will help air the suit and prevent mold. You can also cover them in a cloth bag and hang them on sturdy hangers in your closet or wardrobe. Suits and jackets when worn occasionally need to look perfect and fresh. And if worn daily, need to be cleaned gently and professionally. It's best to not take risks with delicate and fancy items of clothing and invest in preserving them. DipDap offers flat and affordable rates on dry cleaning and ironing all your clothing items, including suits and jackets.
A final check of the clothes and items is done after they are washed and dried. This inspection ensures all items are thoroughly cleaned in a hygienic and safe manner and look tidy and neat before they are folded or ironed. Once the items are neatly folded or ironed, they are carefully packed & sealed in our DipDap bags to get them ready for delivery.
