Caring for Your Suit by Holland & Sherry

A well looked after suit will last a long time. For complete satisfaction follow these basic care instructions to preserve your suit's longevity.

  • Pockets, lapels and columns should be brushed frequently to remove dirt.

  • Stains should be blotted immediately not rubbed.

  • Creased garments recover well in a humid environment. Hang them somewhere damp and warm, such as a bathroom, or vaporize them lightly with water.

  • After use, allow your suit to rest; wearing the same suit for two days in succession can cause damage to the fibres.

  • To help maintain the shape of your suit always hang your jacket on an appropriate hanger that supports the shoulders and always hang your trousers vertically.

  • Avoid placing items in your pockets as this will put strain on the seams.

  • Unbutton your suit jacket before you sit down to avoid pulling.

  • Store your suit in a breathable garment bag for protection.

  • Have your suit dry cleaned atleast once a season, however excessive dry cleaning can reduce the life of a suit.
