7 Ways You Might Not be Maximizing Your Wardrobe

closet.jpg

1. Keep Your Closet Fresh and Pest Free

  • Cedar closet fresheners take up very little space and provide a forest fresh scent with insect protection
  • Removes moisture from the air and clothes

2. Storage

  • Garment Bags
    • Always store your off season clothing in a garment bag
    • Never transport your clothing without a garment bag
  • Rotate the garments in your main closet according to season

    3.  Cleaning Your Suit

    • Send your garments to a reputed cleaner only as needed
    • Air out and spot clean garments with a damp cloth to get rid of stains and odours. 
    • Remember: dry-cleaning is a chemical process – whether or not it’s organic – and has an affect on the cloth of your suit!

    4. Coat Brush

    • Releases dirt and helps keep the integrity of the suit 
    • Regular brushing will get into the fabric without damaging it
    • Pick a brush that is not too stiff or too soft, made by hand with natural bristles.
    • Lint rollers pull out fibers and promote pilling and only pick up the surface dirt

    5.  Shoe Accessory Must-Haves

    • Always use cedar shoe trees as they absorb moisture and odours
    • Alternate your shoes so that they have a chance to decompress
    • Have your shoes shined and leather conditioned regularly
    • Never put your shoes on without a shoe horn

    6. Quality Hangers

    • Use specific hangers for your suits, pants and dress shirts. 
      • Suit Hangers should have wide shoulder pads to protect your jacket shoulders and a sturdy, thick trouser bar.
      • Pant Hangers should keep your trousers in place and not falling off the hanger
      • Shirt Hangers should prevent creasing and wrinkles . (Toss those wire hangers!)

    The Re-Emergence of the Pinstripe Suit

    The pinstripe suit synonymous with bankers is experienceing a rennaissance. Everyone from the Wall Street powerhouse to the Brooklyn graphic design wiz can adopt this suit. Style-wise, vertical stripes can work on a variety of people since the lines create a slimming effect. But for taller people for example, the stripes can end up making you look longer and lankier than usual, perhaps negatively changing the silhouette. For slimmer builds, it can make you look too slim. It should also be noted that mid to closer stripes are more fashionable right now versus wider stripes.

It should also be noted that mid to closer stripes are more fashionable right now versus wider stripes.

    Nano technology makes this luxury cloth both crease resistant and water / stain resistant.

    As for the stripes themselves, it's important to understand how width influences the look. While thin stripes slim, wider stripes create a louder look that can actually add weight to your figure. Contact your design consultant to see what pattern suits you best.

    The pinstripe suit is still a classic, but has evolved into a modern day "must have" suit for Spring Summer 2017. 

    Lightweight VS. Tropical Wool - The Argument For Wool In The Summer.

    What is lightweight wool? All tropical wool is lightweight, but not all lightweight wool is tropical wool. Wool is able to be woven less densely than cotton and still look professional. Traits associated with a good tropical wool usually include worsted yarns, a porous weave (for airflow), and perhaps a degree of wrinkle-resistance (as thinner fabric wrinkles while thicker fabric rumples). An excellent option for tropical use is a lightweight fresco.

    Tropical wool has the comfort of linen but without the wrinkles. The comfort of linen is derived in most part because it absorbs sweat. At the same time most linen jacketings do not have weave porosity to the same degree as a lightweight fresco.

    Keep Cool This Summer With Linen

    Sometimes used as currency in ancient Egypt, linen has a long history as a go-to luxury cloth for Summer. Egyptian mummies were wrapped in linen as a symbol of light and purity, and as a display of wealth.

    Advantages of Linen

    1.  Linen clothes feel themselves 3°-4°C below that of silk or cotton-wearing people. It is also noticed that those wearing linen perspire 1.5 times less than when those dressed in cotton clothes and even less than those dressed in clothes from other materials.
    2.  Linen weave reflects heat better, too. This means linen suits, jackets, trousers and shirts have good “shading” properties as well and again – the wearer of linen clothing feels cooler.
    3. Linen is a good conductor of heat. Heat conductivity refers to the extent to which heat can be conveyed through the fabric. As linen quickly allows the heat to escape, it further improves cooling. It is claimed, that heat conductivity of linen is five times higher than wool and eighteen times higher than silk.
    4. Linen is highly absorbent. Your linen garment feels cool to the touch and linen fabric will quickly remove perspiration from the skin. Linen is capable of absorbing moisture and then and quickly yielding it again. Because of its molecular structure linen cloth can absorb as much as 1/5 of its weight before giving a feeling of being damp or wet. In other words – your linen shirt will absorb lots of perspiration and it is unlikely it will ever feel clammy – as water evaporates off linen as quickly as off the surface puddle. So, water is both absorbed and evaporated quickly. The result is your linen dress acting like an excellent cooling system.
