How To Care For Your Suit

blog-innerimg1You spend so much money on a good quality bespoke suit and it’s important to look after it. A few easy steps can help you add years to your suits life. The small rules that make up suit care are simple –

Wearing your suit – Wrong wearing habits are one of the biggest reasons for the irreplaceable damage caused to a suit.
•    Avoid carrying bulky items or heavy sets of keys in your suit as this can strain the pockets and the pointed items such as keys can catch on linings.
•    Always unbutton your jacket before sitting down as this could cause the fabric to go through unnecessary stress.
•    Don’t wear the same suit two days in a row, as clothing typically needs at least a day of rest to breathe
•    Hang up the suit on a wide wooden hanger as soon as you are done wearing it.
•    As the trouser goes a lot more wear and tear than your jacket, having an extra pair of trousers can also increase the life of your suit

blog-innerimg2Cleaning & Ironing – Its common perception that your suits needs to get dry cleaned if it gets dirty or wrinkled. But experts say dry cleaning should happen only 2-3 times a year.
•    A regular brushing of the suit will shrug off the dust
•    Try and clean stains immediately so they don’t become stubborn
•    Press the suit if they get wrinkled, a hand held steamer and trouser press will do the job for every day wear.
•    When ironing your suit, keep the heats setting moderate and use a clean cotton cloth over the suit to avoid damage to delicate fabrics and avoid shine marks from the ironing.
Storing & protecting your suit –
•    It is recommended that you let the suit dry out completely before putting it in the air tight bag after you have worn it during the day.
•    Store the suits in a place where they can breathe, as lack of air can make the fabric die and you may find mold or moths attacking your favorite tailor made suit.
•    Keep them on a hanger (preferably a cedar wood hanger as it also works as a repellant from moths), always upright in a closet.
•    Mothballs can keep the moths away from your suit but the smell is unpleasant. Dried lavender leaves in sealed punches will protect your suit from moths without the drawback of the awful smell of mothballs.

Bentex Suits did a fantastic job designing & tailoring an amazing suit for my wedding day. I was so happy with the outcome and felt really good on the day. I wanted to go for a vintage look & feel and they totally nailed the brief! I had so many comments from just about everyone saying how dapper I looked and after receiving our photos from the day, I’ve really been able to see how nice the suit looked! I'd recommend Roshni & the team to anyone looking to get a suit tailored.

If you prefer quality tailoring or, like me, if you need it - I strongly recommend Bentex Suits.

I would highly recommend Bentex Suits to anyone looking for quality tailored clothing. I have struggled for years to find suits and shirts that fit me properly (given my tall & slim build) - not anymore! Ajay and Roshni are both very knowledgable, the variety of available fabrics is vast and no request is too challenging. I have 2 suits/12 shirts and will certainly be returning again. Well done Bentex!

This was our first stop for a Bridal Party 6 suits in total!We booked in and were given all the knowledge of a suit and it's materials... The options are endless! But we were professionally steered in the right direction after sitting down with Bentex we were armed with all the knowledge! We shopped around after seeing Bentex but were not treated as well or given the same options with the suit designs and always limited fabrics! All in all we wasted our time going back to other shops and came straight back to Bentex the final fitting was a breeze and the wedding was fabulous!Thank you so much Bentex!

Roshni & Ajay were absolutely fantastic in all ways possible. They assisted with the selection of the suit including the syle and colour. They ensured that the trials and delivery was on time and above all the suits looked absolutely amazing! Would never go anywhere to stich suits anymore
