Don't Get Taken to the Cleaners Chances are you're servicing your suit too often Do it infrequently. Dry cleaning can be brutal on suiting fabric. A suit is an investment; you want to preserve its integrity. If it's looking creased and wrinkled, take it in to have it steam-pressed. This is especially good for cotton suits, which wrinkle more easily. Hang it up in the bathroom, blast a hot shower, and close the door for ten minutes. It'll look—almost—like new.

Learn to suit up properly and everything else follows. Whether you're an office guy who needs to look sharp for the competition, or a creative type who dresses up because he likes to, the suit is the basic building block of looking good. It's a timeless, ever adaptable, sometimes maligned, but never improved uniform. Get the basics down and then you can lose yourself in perfecting the details.
