• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

If I sell a suit to someone, what's the best way to pack it for shipping?

If it was advertised as "new with tags," I believe it should be shipped so that it does not arrive in a wrinkled mess. I would expect it to be in condition for me to take it to the tailors without having to take it to be pressed.

If it is a "used" suit, I would anticipate receiving it in the smallest package possible in order to reduce the cost of shipping. That would undoubtedly imply that it could or would arrive all wrinkled. That would be fine because I would expect to take it to be dry cleaned before I wore it or before I took it to be tailored.

Your tailor would not press it while/before/during the alterations?

If you're not a cheap bastard, I sell shipping boxes for suits. I have three of them from when I bought some Ralph Lauren Black Labels. They're basically large boxes with hangers inside. I'm happy to sell them to people on here, if anyone's interested.


The best way is to in shipping boxes for suits wit hthe hanger but I've bought suits off ebay and on this forum and its come in a variety of ways-from folded up/stuffed in a USPS priority box to the suit boxes.

Ditto for USPS Flat Rate box if suit is on the heavy weight side. If lighter in weight, the nonFlat Rate box offered by USPS works.
