While purchasing disposable items is a popular fad, it doesn't make economic sense when it comes to business garments like men's suits. Investing in high quality suits that will give you years of service is a smart move. Here's some tips for protecting your investment.
Today's "throwaway society" purchases items based primarily on price instead of investing in quality clothes that will give them many years of serviceable wear. Since they are buying poor quality garments made with shoddy workmanship, the garments don't hold up, and they end up discarding them after a few wearings. Because the quality is horrific, it's easier and cheaper to purchase something new than to repair an older item.
Let's think about this. Doesn't it make better sense to invest in quality men's clothing that might be more expensive upfront but because the garments last longer than their cheaper counterparts are really more cost effective?
For example, a cheap tuxedo may cost less when purchased. But if it wears out faster, you'll have to buy another one sooner, rather than later. A quality tuxedo might cost more, but because it has a longer useful life, it saves you the trouble and expense of investing in another one. Let's take a quick look at thebenefits of proper clothing storage
Ordinary clothes that are well maintained always look much better than expensive ones that show signs of neglect or do not fit properly.
The signs of well-maintained clothing are evident in the lustre on a pair of buffed shoes, the crisp fit of a tailored suit, and the sharp collar points of a freshly ironed business shirt.
With men's wear becoming increasingly disposable, ironing, repairing and brushing clothes seems an alien concept to many people. The key point here? Well-made garments last longer.
If neglected, clothes can be damaged by moths, which means you could lose hundreds of dollars. While re-weaving might repair the damage, prevention is better than a cure. Proper clothing maintenance, including proper storage, saves you money, which you could invest in more clothes to supplement your wardrobe. A good example of this is the regular brushing and polishing of footwear, which keeps the leather supple and in good condition.
Maintaining men's clothing is a discipline-instilling habit. It requires you to prioritize this aspect of looking after your wardrobe into your busy schedules. The discipline with which you maintain your wardrobe speaks volumes about how disciplined you are in other areas of your life as well.
Now that you understand the benefits of caring for your clothes properly, and investing in quality garments that will give you years of wear, you might be ready to add a new men's suit or business shirts to your wardrobe.
