Hi, I a suit from online, but I noticed a bit of wear. Its a Polo II Ralph Lauren, 3/2 roll suit, so I know its half canvased at least.



The main problem is that the lapels look like they've been through a war. Otherwise, it's a pretty great suit.

Any advice how to go about this?

Can anyone offer advice for this? I ironed it on the backside of the lapel but it didn't do that much

I can't see the picture (blocked from work) but if you've got damaged lapels then you may not be able to repair them depending on the construction of the jacket. Personally I would try and locate a very good dry cleaner (protip, it won't be the guy who lives around the corner from you. do some research, ask some people) and ask them if a press would fix the damage (it may not).

If you wanted to try ironing it yourself, get either an ironing cloth or a loose weave tea towel, give it a light spray with water, place it over the area you wish to iron and press down checking carefully to see when the desired effect has occurred.
