How To Get Wrinkles Out of Shirts and Suits

Tips from David Lance

Suits become a part of our bodies, and as we move and sit throughout the day, they tend to wrinkle. A few occasional wrinkles that happen throughout the day are completely acceptable – you don’t need to press your clothes midday. In actuality, suits that look starched and pressed into what looks like stiff pieces of cardboard look cheap and are just plain old out of style. Just make sure that you are getting your suit’s major wrinkles out with a steamer and not an iron. Never use an iron on suits because it will wreak havoc on its texture, and will cause it to gloss. You will even more likely burn the top finish off the cloth which will cause a shine that Liberace would be proud of. Lastly, make sure that you only steam out wrinkles before you wear your suit, while it’s dry, not after. Steaming a suit and then placing it in a closet will cause your suit to smell or even mold from the extra moisture.

As far as shirts go, make sure that you read the care instructions – even some cotton’s cannot withstand direct heat. Be careful and take an extra second to ensure that you’re not permanently damaging your clothes.
