Any suggestions for winter clothing storage in NYC

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I know Garde Robe, but they are stupidly expensive if you aren't storing women's couture. Anyone find a reasonable way to store your wool and cashmere winter suits?

Rent a locker at one of those indoor storage places in Manhattan along the West Side Highway? I can't imagine that they are THAT CHEAP, but probably a less expensive alternative than one of the professional wardrobe managing firms. Just be sure to de-moth, toss half a cedar tree inside with your suits, and let them hang out until next fall.

Put your clothes along with some moth balls into Space Bags then vacuum-seal them. Put the bags into airtight container boxes with more moth balls. I also suggest those storage places NCT recommended. I had one in the 40's and WSH, opened 24/7. It's easily accessible via cross-town buses. You gain access to your floor with a magnetic card.

A lot of people say those space bags are worthless. Any place you can get reasonable quality vacuum-sealed bags? dan

Isn't it difficult to get the mothball smell out of your clothes? I always thought cedar was a better option.

Does it make sense to put it in a trunk, or should everything be hung up?

Moth balls kill and repel, cedar only repels. The no-brand space bags I got from Target work better and costs a lot cheaper than the branded ones. But still, they don't last long, one season in my case.

Would it be prudent to trust the cleaners to store my nice suits when I don't trust them enough to ever have them clean them? dan
