Men's suits can be an attractive addition to your carefully curated wardrobe--but how do you keep them looking just as sharp as the day you bought them? The answer is simple: regular dry cleaning. Here's everything you need to know!

Common Questions and Answers 

Trying, buying, and paying for men's suits can be a bit of a chore--something you don't want to go through every time you need to look sharp for a big meeting or special occasion. That's why it's essential to protect your investment by taking good care of your suits in every way possible.

One way to keep your suits in excellent condition is to make a habit of visiting the dry cleaner. However, since dry cleaning isn't something you can do all the time, it's also important to create a "clothing care routine" for those days in between.

Here's everything you need to know about dry cleaning men's suits!

"How often should suits be dry cleaned?"

For best results, dry cleaning should be done after every wear. This is because sweat left on your suit for an extended period of time can begin to cause discoloration--and that's not good news for your investment.

"What if I can't make it to the dry cleaner that often?"

Sometimes, regular trips to the dry cleaner just aren't going to happen. Instead of worrying about advanced at-home cleaning techniques, it's best to focus on prevention. For example, take off your jacket when the weather gets warm, and always remember to hang your suit correctly when you take it off.

"Can I use my washer, dryer, and iron?"

Unfortunately, no. Home washing machines, dryers, and especially irons can cause extensive damage to men's suits--so avoid these things at all costs.
