    I am going to buy used suit from ebay. I have NEVER bought any used clothes before. The only used clothings I wore were my sister's old t-shirts. But that was 15 yrs ago.

    What do you guys do when you recieve a used suit from ebay? Do you send them to dry clean right away?

    It depends on the seller.  Some come immaculately pressed, dry cleaned, and folded, and some come shoved into a box willy-nilly. You'll know when you've received the garment if it needs to be dry-cleaned and/or pressed, obviously.

    If dry cleaning it makes you feel more comfortable, dry clean it.
