Need to get some wrinkles out of a suit. Dry clean or ask them to do something else?

post #1 of 29

Hi all,

When I try my suit jacket on the two sides seem to "poof" out a bit. I know all of the possible methods I can fix this on my own but I am not going to bother and will just bring it to the dry cleaners. I know dry cleaning is generally not good, so is there something else I can get them to do to it that would be better? Do they usually offering steaming services? Pressing? Monkeys throwing feces until the wrinkles are out?

Thanks! I know there are lots of topics on de-wrinkling but most of these are home solutions.

Pics of the problem will result in better suggestions to solve this issue.

Steamers work well; but, not cheap. Worth the investment.

1st. I've been thinking of buying a steamer and I might, but this is a separate issue, I won't be buying one shortly. 2nd. Its not just the side things, there are a few little things here and there that I would like ironed out. Here is one pic which demonstrates the front side pop-outage. Crossing my arms accentuates it. Also, would someone like to comment on the fit? I have no idea why they were uploaded sideways/

A good steaming will get thje wrinkles out, if this is a regular occurance i'd invest in one.

Any suggestions on a steamer? Do they also work well with shirts? (i.e. I won't really have to iron them anymore). I live in Canada and I doubt I could find one locally for a decent price to please if you find one take a quick look if they ship to Canada.

Thanks!

Can you highlight the problem with the jacket you think would be fixed by steaming it? From these two pictures, I can't see what you are talking about.

Sorry, in the first picture the bottom is really "popping" out on the sides and it looks like I am wearing a little dress...no?

It's perfectly normal for the skirt to flare out a bit if you cross your arms in front of you.

What? Skirt flaring out too much? That has nothing to do with wrinkles and steaming but more with the cut of that jacket and what fabric it is made of.

Well it is made of good wool, but I can tell when I look on the side that the flaring out is not due to the seem that is right next to it, just looks like it was the way it was folded when it was shipped to me that created a slight crease.

Looks good to me. I kinda like a little "skirt flair". But, if you don't I think you'd have to have the tailor bring in the sides. There might be just a little too much room around the hips. The front quarters look a hair closed, but overall nice fit.

A light steaming might relax the cloth, but don't overdo it. Too much steam = bad for canvas and shape.
