Garment care

Buying quality products can be a good investment, but you need to take proper care of the garments to prolong it’s lifetime.
Here, we are sharing some tips and tricks for proper garment care.

Custom suits

• After each use, make sure to hang your suit on a broad shouldered hanger. This way, you ensure your suit keeps it shape in the shoulders.

• Make sure to unzip your suitbag if you choose to leave your suit in it for a long period of time. It needs to breathe!

• In the unlikely event your suit gets a stain, you can try to remove it gently with a moist cloth. Please notice that rough handling with hard bristles and such, can deteriorate and rip the fibres in the suit. If that happens, it starts to become weak and more prone to ripping.

• Et jakkesæt skal til rens fra tid til anden, også selvom det ikke er synligt beskidt. Brug et professionelt renseri for det bedste resultat. Mond of Copenhagen anbefaler CO2-rens – så er du sikker på at dit jakkesæt får en god og miljøvenlig behandling. Jakker bør max renses 1-2 gange årligt, og bukser max 2-3 gange årligt. Det der slider mest på et jakkesæt er faktisk når det bliver sendt til rens.

• Your suits needs to be dry cleaned every once in a while. Make sure to use a professional dry cleaner that either offers CO2 cleaning, or really knows their way around suits. Wrong handling of a suit during dry cleaning can destroy the suit for good. For half canvas construction, avoid excessive heat and steam to the front of the jacket. For full canvas construction, there are no fuzed materials inside so your suit is not at risk of delaminating or anything.

• Make sure to give your suit around 48 hours of rest between use. This way, your suit will have time to properly dry and return to it’s original shape before being used again.

A suit that doesn’t get to rest, will have a significantly shorter lifetime. This is due to the fact that the fibres in your suit is being constantly stretched and moisturized from sweat. So if they are not allowed to dry up, they will become weaker and weaker in the typical areas such as elbows, seat and thighs.

• In emergency situations, you can apply gentle ironing on your suit if you apply low heat, and use a damp cloth between the iron and your suit.

• Please do never ever put your suit in the washing machine. All of the layers from inside out will shrink unevenly and the result is a broken suit.

Custom shirts

• Put them on a hanger to rest after washing. Please use a hanger with slightly broader shoulders, and avoid the small metal hangers from the dry cleaner. Otherwise, you might see unnecessary folds and bubbles on the shoulders.

• Sort your shirts by colour before wash to separate light and darker shades from each other. Use a gentle wash program of 30/40 degrees and low spinning cycle. Remove the shirts when still damp, and leave them on a hanger to dry with the top button on the collar closed.

• The more care you put into arranging the shirt on the hanger right after washing, the easier it will be to iron it afterwards. So make sure sleeves are unfold and that shoulder and collar is sitting properly on the hanger.

• All our shirts are meant to be ironed, but be carefull to apply too much heat at the same spot for longer periods as this might leave burning marks on the product. This cannot be removed!

Shoes

• Leather shoes are one of the most comfortable things to wear because they will mould to your foot over time, and age well with some patina as a result. However, leather shoes also require the most care, but if you manage to give your leather shoes proper care and maintenance, you can extend their life span significantly!

• If your leather shoes are dirty, remove the dirt before you polish them. E.g. with a hard wrung cloth or a soft brush. Remember that suede shoes needs waterproofing specially made for suede and that they do not tolerate water. Instead, use a suede brush and impregnate again.

• After removing the dirt, let them dry (if you have used a damp cloth) and then treat them with either shoe cream or shoe polish. A care product that matches the shoe in color gives the best result, but a neutral shoe polish is also excellent.

• Polish. Finally, the shoe must be polished to remove any excess color and to get the best result. You get the best result by using a soft shoe brush, but an old t-shirt or a nylon stocking can also do the trick.

• If you find that your shoes get wet in the rain, fill them (without stuffing and mashing) with crumpled newspaper when you get home. The paper absorbs the moisture while keeping the shape of the shoe. Do not dry leather shoes on the radiator or with a hairdryer, as you risk the heat drying out the skin or causing it to crack.

Ties

• Should you get a grease stain on your tie, attempt to rinse off with lukewarm water and soap or benzene on a clean cloth.

• Avoid using brushes as far as possible for the same reason as the suit, and be aware that certain cleaning products may enter and affect the colour of the affected area. Alternatively, a professional dry cleaner might be able to help.

• If the stains were not successfully removed using the above methods, you should get a new tie. Nothing can ruin a look as a dirty tie. We can help you find a new one right here!
Your ties should be hung with the knot undone when you are not wearing them.
