How does one take care of a suit?

I've only worn this newest suit about 3 times and the back, tail, and sleeves are showing signs of creasing and wrinkle.

Is there something I'm not doing that I should be? I know there is, I just don't know what that is.

When I'm done wearing it, I just hang it back up.

Yes, sitting down with the suit tail folded underneath you will cause folds and wrinkles. The weight of the fabric will also have an impact.

Some people brush their suits after each wear to remove small partcles of dust and dirt so they don't get trapped in the fibers. They also claim that it lifts the nap of the cloth back up so it doesn't get shiny and such. i don't know how realistic this is though. I would think the nap lifting is more practical, but I have never compared not doing it on one suit to doing it on another. All of my suits have shiny elbow syndrome from me being banished to a desk. I'll live with it.

A Kent clothes brush. I believe they are horsehair and nylon.
