How to Care for New Suits

Many times, customers ask us about the best way to care for their new suit. Here are a few critical care instructions sure to extend the wearable life and comfort of your new suit and keep it looking new for longer.

Here some basic tips to get you started enjoying your new suit. Before you start wearing it, have it steamed or pressed. While our suits always come steamed, pressing your suit gives it that extra crisp and clean look. If you would like your suit pressed, just ask us.

Next, dry clean your suit - never launder it - as necessary. If your suit is not 100% wool, make sure your dry cleaner knows its fabric content as excessive heat can cause it to become “shiny.” Finally, after each wear, brush the jacket lightly and hang it up on a wide wooden hanger that supports the shoulders.


Now that you have established a routine for keeping your suit looking crisp and fresh, here are some tips for its ongoing maintenance so you can be sure it will give you years of serviceable wear:

  • Leave your suit in an airy environment for at least one day before placing it back in your wardrobe or wearing again. Each suit needs at least one day’s rest after wearing to assist with longevity.
  • Avoid carrying heavy objects in your jacket pockets as it may strain them.
  • Don't carry bulging sets of keys in your jacket pocket as these can catch on delicate linings.
  • Always unbutton your jacket before you sit down.
  • To keep your suit looking crisp, have it pressed between cleanings.
  • Rotate your suits. If you can avoid wearing the same suit every day, you will get more life out of it.
  • Buy a second pair of trousers to match each suit; rotate these as well.
  • Have any spots or stains professionally treated - immediately.
  • If you’re storing your suit for a prolonged period, dry clean it first.

If you follow these simple instructions, your suit will give you years of comfortable, confident use, and you'll extend its wearable life so you'll get the most out of your investment.


However, when it's time to replace abusiness suit or you just want to add a new garment to your wardrobe, remember you can browse hundreds of suits and fabric swatches by popping into our Sydney showroom.

Montagio did a great job on wedding suits for me and my two groomsmen. Bally provided us with fantastic service and the result was definitely superior to an off-the-rack option... more »
