Here are some tips on how to care for and store gentlemenâ€™s outerwear.
Wool Coats :
Care – Dry-clean one or two times each winter. Always use strong wooden hangers â€“ not hooks â€“ to hang.
Storage â€“ Use mothballs or cedar-chips to protect during warmer months.
Leather Jackets :
Care â€“ If the jacket gets wet, always allow to dry on itâ€™s own. Never use a heat source, which can dry out the leatherâ€™s natural oils. Wipe off white salt stains with cool water and a soft cloth. When necessary, use an appropriate leather conditioner to repair marks and scratches.
Storage â€“ Use sturdy wooden hangers and never leave garment in a plastic dry-cleaner bag; this avoids drying out the leather.
