Ok to get my suit trousers just pressed and not dry-cleaned?

The crease has lost its edge. If my suit isn't dirty (I've learned here that dry-cleaning beats up a suit), can I have the dry cleaner just press the trousers?

Acting out the heat
Tie and shirts and cufflinks
Well that's pretty neat

You can, but I think that there has been danger attributed to this - invisible dirt can get pressed in, and actually damage the fabric.

Happy to be corrected if wrong about this.

Curious to see others' answers.

Be careful - if there is any dirt at all on the suit - it will get pressed in. Small particles of dirt can act like small razors when pressed that hard.

If they merely need pressing then get an iron and do it yourself regularly.

If they are dirty or marked then 'no' - they need to be cleaned.

Thanks all. I'll probably gets some more wear out of it, then dry clean it, and hang it up until fall, it's pretty heavy fabric.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
