Can someone give me an idea of what Hallak might charge to dryclean a tuxedo?
I know the general philosophy is to dryclean only when necessary, and to steam otherwise, but even lacking stains or some other visible distress, does there actually come a point (a certain number of wearings, or a certain span of time) where is steaming is insufficient, and a good drycleaning is prudent? Because my tuxedo sees the light of day only once or twice a year, judging by the number of wearings it gets, it might seem reasonable to clean it only every couple of years. But at the same time, letting it go that long between cleanings somehow seems... unseemly. Am I wrong? My thinking was that if I use a "green" drycleaner, the damage usually caused by the process would be minimal.
