Linen designer menswear is designed to keep you looking and feeling cool all through the summer months. But that light, airy fabric that you get with linen suits makes it nearly impossible to keep the wrinkles away; and if you wash them improperly, you could ruin that suit for good.

In order to properly care for your linen suit, you’ll first need to make sure that you purchase it from only the best place to buy men’s clothes in Milwaukee, such as us here at Harleys. Only when you buy from a high-quality and experienced mens apparel store can you be certain that you’ll be getting the finest material. This is of the utmost importance when you choose linen, because it’s such a delicate fabric to begin with; and choosing poor-quality linen will only increase the complications of caring for it.

After purchase and when it’s time wash your linen suit, it should only be entrusted to the highest quality dry cleaners that can properly treat it, without damaging the suit. Linen is extremely sensitive to heat and moisture, and if you just throw it into your washing machine, you can be sure that was the last time you wore it. Dry cleaners can also get all of those wrinkles out, without ever touching the suit with a hot iron – something that is difficult to achieve at home.

Linen suits aren’t ideal for traveling, but if you must have yours while on the road, make sure to carry it in a very roomy travel bag and to make sure that it’s not folded. Once those wrinkles get in there, it’s near impossible to get it out.
