Cleaning Men's Suit

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'd like to get your opinion on how often should
one dry-clean a suit (after every one or two wears, for example)?

Excessive dry cleaning obviously damages the suit, so is it better
to have it steam-pressed after every wear and dry clean sparingly?

Welcome to SF Darveesh. Sit back and learn and enjoy.

Use your search feature and I'm sure you will find many previous threads on how often to dry clean a suit.

Here's one: It's on pants but is applicable to dry cleaning suits too!

I'll be surprised if anyone on this forum advocates dry cleaning a suit after every wear!

I would suggest  dry clean a suit after every wear,it doesn't effect much where as a dirty suit can effect your image a lot.peepwall[1].gif

Dry cleaning is a harsh process on materials, especially organic ones like wool. The most I seem to dry clean my suits is once a season if they are being regularly used. For suits I use more rarely I will dry clean more rarely. I have had suits that I only use a few times a year that I have never dry cleaned. Doesn't mean I won't, I just haven't used them enough to need it yet. Same goes with my sport coats.

This is absurd.

Only dry clean when it's actually dirty. Brush before and after every wear.

Get yourself a good Kent brush (check out Ebay) to clean and either a steamer or just place by shower to remove wrinkles. Save the dry cleaning for a serious stain.

I'm with this. There are many items in my closet that have never been dry cleaned. Too many people here seem to say dry clean at the end of each season, but there's no need if it isn't dirty.
