Hey all, new here (I will introduce myself in the appropriate thread):

I thought of no better place to ask than here , where can I get a suit properly pressed in London? I have 2 days from when I land to the day of the wedding .

Also I know this forum has ample information on shopping in London, but what about Dublin?

Could you also suggest any sales that you may know of at the end of July (and first week of August) in London or Dublin?

Thanks guys

When you ask your drycleaner to "press" your suit, what exactly do they do?

Most dry cleaners in general? Butcher it.

Good suits benefit from a hand-pressing. If you're lucky enough to live near your tailor, and are really nice to them, they will do it for you if you really crease it badly. Alternatively, find a good dry cleaner that understands suits. This is especially true for 3-2 and 3-2.5 rolls and DBs, I find.
