-Dry-clean only, and only when necessary. If you sweat heavily in your suit or spill something on your garment(s), we recommend having it dry-cleaned. Make sure to check with your dry-cleaner to make sure they are comfortable cleaning a custom-made garment; not all dry-cleaners have the proper gentle care equipment.
-Have the suit pressed to remove wrinkles, or to crisp up the creases down the pants. Between wears, it may be helpful to hang the suit up in the bathroom while the shower runs hot and naturally steams the room — this can help relax wrinkles.
-Laundering your shirt is better for the overall life of the garment, but will cause the garment to shrink much faster.
-We recommend dry-cleaning the shirts, and only when necessary. We do not recommend cleaning each shirt after each wear. The chemicals used in the dry-cleaning process are harsher on the long-term life of your shirts; most likely though, you will want to replace your shirts before you notice any major wear on the shirts caused by wear and tear or dry-cleaning chemicals. Request that your dry-cleaner use light starch, if any.
-We do not recommend washing the shirts yourself.
-Dry cleaners have a tendency to break buttons in the dry cleaning process. Our suit buttons are often more delicate than plastic buttons, since they often are made from mother of pearl or horn. We will not be able to order replacement button sets if your dry cleaner breaks the buttons during the cleaning process.
Please have a conversation with your dry cleaner about being careful with your suit buttons before you allow them to clean your suit.
The phrase "wear and tear" is a reality when you wear clothing. If you wear it, you can tear it.
Additional factors like cleaning can play a role as well.
If a garment has been worn even once, we cannot accept responsibility for tears, stains, fabric pulls/pilling (this can occur in major pressure points such as inner thighs), or any other miscellaneous issues that can and sometimes do arise from use, cleaning, etc. and will not take responsibility for any items lost or damaged in the cleaning or pressing process.
All King Brothers clothing items are to be treated with gentle care. Just because it's expensive, does NOT mean it's indestructible!
If you are located in Minneapolis/St. Paul area, we recommend using Mulberry's Cleaners for your laundering, dry-cleaning, and pressing needs.
