Protect Your Investment in Outerwear

A fine winter coat can be a lasting investment. Take care of it and it will take care of you. Coats of all styles, fabrics and colors — and especially 100% wool coats — respond well to proper care during the winter and in the off season. Here are some tips to help you:

Wear scarves to avoid soiling the collar — especially for leather and suede coats.

Try to use a good wooden coat hanger rather than a hook, to preserve a coat's shape.

Gently brush your wool coat after each wearing to remove surface dirt. If possible, allow a day of rest between each wearing so that fibers can return to their natural shape.

For wool coats labeled "dry clean only," two cleanings per season is typical.

At the end of the winter, coats should be cleaned and properly stored. We can help!
