Should I Buy A Suit Brush?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I noticed a thread recently and I don't want to hijack that one...


Is a clothes brush necessary or highly recommended? It seems to me that a lot of clothing and shoe care items are overkill. I want to make worthwhile purchases and these fringe items can quickly add up. I just picked up my first bespoke suit and I would like to take good care of it. What are your thoughts on the usefulness of a brush?

It's like brushing your teeth, or washing your butt.

What I mean is, yes you should take care of your nice stuff!

Here, I'll try to be helpful: Kent Brushes sells new, factory-second brushes on eBay for very reasonable prices. In fact, there's a double sided clothes brush on the top of their page right now for 24 bucks.

Yes. Very useful in removing dust on wool suits and gives that nice sheen on the suit.

if you have a grease stain, put some baby powder on the stain, leave it in for a couple hours and remove gently with an aforementioned suit brush. you save your suit one dry cleaning. thank me later.

absolutely. a garment brush is the most useful accessory in my apartment.. at least use a soft-bristle toothbrush if you don't want to spend the money on a real brush.

I have one of the 3-in-1 garment brush/lint remover/shoe horn thingies and I have to say it has come in handy plenty of times. I would not, however, recommend brushing your suits after each wearing like some others have over the years. It's just overkill and will shorten the life of your suits.
