Unwrinkling Your Suit

I'm in need of some tips for getting wrinkles out of my suit. Are there any specific ironing tips to keep in mind so that the wrinkles come out but you don't end up fucking with the material? To date, I've usually pressed the jacket inside out with a steam setting.... is that pretty much standard or is there a better way of doing it?

Put your suit in the shower bar after wearing it, turn on the hot water, shut door, and the steam should straighten out the winkles. Its ghetto, but it works.

You shouldnt dry clean your suit all that much to be honest.

Or you could invest in a steamer?

They sell those portable ones at Sears or the Bay or even small appliance stores for $40 or so. They are great for morning quick fix ups and of course, you can carry them with you when you travel.

A better question would be why are you concerning yourself with these sorts of trivial problems! Give this task for your women to take care of - you have more important things to take care of.

Use an iron but put a sheet of newspaper between the iron and the suit. That way you still get the heat (slightly indirect) and the hot metal doesn't touch the material, which is how they become shiny over years of dry cleaning.

And yes, dry clean your suit as little as possible, maybe twice per year.

A suit not stockings

I recommend batch ironing all your shit at once so you can slack that much more in the mornin

Really? Won't it either burn the paper or rub the ink off on your suit?

It won't burn, but I have wondered if the ink would rub off. Then again, all my suits are dark. And I don't iron them either.
