^ that machines look very quirky, are you sure it can only be used as a steamer?

I dry clean my suits ONLY when there is a stain.
I have a lint brush that I use before and after each wear(jacket.)
I wear boxers/briefs to keep my ass smell off of my pants.
I wash my shirts after each wear. I NEVER wear then back to back.
I press my pants in the morning when I decide which suit to wear.
I don't keep my suit jacket on the back of my chair at work....I keep it on my person.

I think it gets hotter than a regular steamer (Jiffy, etc.), though I could be wrong. Also, very concentrated bursts of steam. I think that helps it to sanitize/deodorize better.

Again, not sure on how it works.

What's your method? Do you have an ironing board with a vacuum?

I found this helpful:

And there's me, thinking that it was designed to address the OP's anal concerns...

buy yourself a lint roller, aside from that your gonna need more suits if you need to wear em everyday

Aside from ruining your suits, it would cost a bloody fortune to dry clean them after every use.

 

This past summer, I wore a suit Monday-Friday and I only had three suits at the time.  Even then, bad odour didn't seem to be a problem.

All this assumes you have the kind of white collar job for which wearing a suit makes sense. If you are doing dirty, sweaty manual labor outdoors, your clothes will need washing after every use, but don't wear suits.

Six suits would let you wear each once a week, which would be fine. You could start with 2 or 3 and work your way up as you decide what you like.

Oh, and to quote the tailors "never steam suits!"

This disturbs me. I sweat sometimes, especially if I'm wearing a suit outdoors in the summer, and sometimes sweat under my arms clearly gets through my shirts into my jackets - the inside of the jacket under the underarms is moist.

 

I understand not dry cleaning suits too often, but I do it once or twice a year.

Suit jackets will typically have sweat guards, and majority of suits are fully lined. Similarly trousers for the most part are lined to the knee, which actually extends below the knee. 

 

+ shirt and underwear and air conditioning in cars + offices should keep sweating to a minimal.

 

Also choosing the right fabric for the weather/location is important. A lightweight summer suit of cotton, silk/wool blends which breathe much easier and are cooler will also help the temperature. 

 

If you sweat profusely, or are out walking around outside in the 100+ degree heat, live in tropical areas etc. then you may need to dry clean more often, but it should still be kept to a minimum

This is a fascinating thread. And people say SF has been going downhill. fing02[1].gif

IT is about time the discussion "got real".
Ass funk and feces residue on suit pants is about as real as it gets.

Inquiring minds want to know.....

Even with lining/sweat guards those part will get sweaty.I'm not saying the sweat goes through the suit to the outside, but that parts of the suit, such as the lining under the arms and around the butt get sweat into them, which can't be good w/o cleaning sometimes.

 

I walk and take subways to work and also walk around my neighborhood and work neighborhood. The subway is air-conditioned, but the platform is not. Even in a summer suit it can get sweaty - this is New York City. Not 100F but 85-95F.  Or check this guy out around 1:45 in http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ugwhwe2Stfk  Northern Italian style, soaked under the arms of his shirt, which is probably going to affect his suit.

 

This summer I went to a funeral and it was in the high 80s and sunny.  Wore a navy linen suit. Sweated into the suit jacket.
