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.
