Where to get a suit pressed in downtown Toronto

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

Where is the best place to go to have a suit pressed only? Not cleaned, not steamed, but properly pressed, like this?

No idea. I take mine to cleaners and and steam my suits between wears.

You might want to go to Harry Rosen, Holt, or Brooks Brothers and see who they use??? Though my guess is they just steam in house.

Start the process of elimination, I guess. 

 

King's Cleaners (King & Church) steams and does not press.

In-stitches in Manulife center say that they press suits.

I'll check with my cleaners (Fashion Cleaners at Queens Quay & Yonge), but I'm pretty sure they steam?

How much you willing to pay for a press service? I think the stand price for 2 piece clean and steam is $15-18?

Did they say whether they press press or steam? When I asked the last place they said "yes, press. No iron. Steam." They were still referring to the steaming as pressing.

I would pay up to 20, it it's done properly. Possibly more for my better suits. My tailor says that he knows someone who does it well, but I think he said that they charge $25. I'm not sure if a cut of that goes to the tailor or not.

 

I'd prefer take it to the person who presses myself (both to save $ and time), if I can figure out someone who will do a good job.

To properly hand iron a suit to the standards proposed by Jeffrey Diduch (see more at www.tuttofattoamano.blogspot.com), expect to pay $50 to $75 US.

Unless one operates a charity comprised of skilled pressing technicians (an unlikely scenario), there's is no possible way to deliver THAT work for anywhere close to the $10 to $25 mentioned. And anyone who says they can do THAT work for THAT price is either (a) lying, (b) not doing the work as specified or (b) has no work on their plate in the first place. If it''s (a) or (b), shame on them. If it's (c), you wouldn't want to entrust your suit to them in the first place.

Just my opinion.

Good to know. I could see what Jeffrey proposed taking much longer than just throwing it on a steam dummy. When I asked my tailor about who does a good job pressing, I didn't show him the link. Maybe we were thinking different things.

 

$50 is way beyond what I can spend. Maybe we could focus on both 1) who does it as Jeffrey proposed, and 2) who does the best job within a normal price range - around $25ish.

I'd be happy to provide a recommendation if such service existed at that price.

Do you have anyone to recommend in Toronto if price doesn't matter?
