CARE GUIDE - SHIRTS AND TIES

HOW TO CARE FOR CUSTOM MADE SHIRTS AND TIES

Shirts

A crisp, clean, well-ironed shirt speaks volumes about the man who wears it and creates the right impression.

  • To avoid shrinkage, wash at a maximum of 40 degrees.
  • Tackle marks around the collar with a pre-wash stain remover.
  • Never tumble dry. Hang shirts to dry on a hanger.
  • Invest in a good quality steam iron, but press when damp
    if possible.

Ties & Pocket Squares

Your choice of tie or pocket square is a very personal one and often the first thing people notice.

  • Dry clean only, and as seldom as possible.
  • Avoid ironing ties. Hanging in a steamy bathroom will usually remove wrinkles.
  • When necessary, press on the back of the tie or pocket square with a cool iron, using a cloth as a barrier.
  • Never wear the same tie two days running, and store on a tie rack or hanger.
