I'm shipping out for bootcamp in a few days and need some suggestions on how to store a few things. I'm pretty sure I won't be touching a lot of my current work clothes for awhile so I'll just assume to store it for long term. Place of storage isn't an issue as my parents have volunteered a room in their house and it is temp-controlled.
As for my suits, I have had them on some hangerproject hangers and I'll just keep them that way. Clean/brush them down and store them in a canvas/cloth suit bag. The hanger project cloth bags I've had are holding up quite nicely so i think to just stuff a bag of cedar shavings at the bottom and that should be all good.
I've got quite a few shirts... would it be ok to fold them and stack on top of each other? or should I worry about the collars losing their structure? I am thinking to just keep them in their hangers and get a canvas closet like this: Canvas Storage and stuff a bunch of cedar blocks and bags in there. The closet in the room where this is being stored is collecting some dust and maybe having this canvas closet might minimize the dust issue.
I've got a lot of sweaters and some of them are quite expensive and this, I'm not sure how to store. Some places like Bed Bath & Beyond has recommended space bags, and while appealing since it will eliminate moth problems, I've read some posts about fabrics needing to 'breath' So with that, I'm not sure how I would store these.
With my shoes, I've read threads/posts on here about applying renovateur on them, put the shoe trees in and keeping them in their shoe bags. So I'll do just that. I don't have any exotic leathers and only one pair of shells. The rest are standard calfs from G&G, EG, and Carmina. I didn't see anything on G&G or EG's site about long-term storing.
*whew* thanks for reading! I've still got quite a bit of loose ends to tie up before shipping out and need all the help I can get!
