This factor is by far the one that has the biggest affect on durability. If we assume you have to wear a suit 5 days a week, if you only own three suits, two of them are going to be worn twice every week, assuming you’re rotating them correctly. Furthermore if only one of those suits is light enough to be worn in the hottest summer months, you are going to end up wearing it every day for up to 2 months. This can mean that the suit is worn out after one summer. Ideally anyone who wears a suit 5 times a week should have at least seven suits: 1 winter weight for those ‘below zero’ days, 4 year-round medium weights that will be worn the majority of the time and 2 summer weight suits that can be rotated during July and August. Anyone who flies to hot countries extensively on business will need more than 2 lightweight suits. One way of improving durability without buying so many suits is to buy an extra pair of trousers. Typically the trousers will tend to wear out first as the jacket is often removed at work. If the trousers are rotated then the suit will take far longer to wear out. Where and how often you have them cleaned Suits do not benefit from being cleaned and it does shorten their life. As a result they should be cleaned as seldom as possible. Dry cleaning can seriously affect the life of a suit; therefore, if the suit is to last, it must be done properly. High Street dry cleaners will clean your suit with other garments that could include riveted jeans, studded leather jackets etc. that can damage the fabric. The suit may also suffer if pressed at too high a temperature. To ensure your suit is dry cleaned carefully we would recommend specialist dry cleaners. As the garments are sponged and spot-cleaned individually rather than thrown into a drum. Staff in these establishments are also well trained and know how to handle and press a suit correctly. How you look after your suits You have invested in your suit so if you want your suit to last you must treat it with respect. Do not put heavy items in the upper or outside jacket pockets, as it will pull the suit out of shape. Why not put your Blackberry, wallet, chequebook etc. in your brief case or your lower left inside pockets?
