Every Man Must Know How To Protect His High-End Clothes
Imagine going through so much trouble to buy the best high-end clothing you can afford, to a year later when they have all but turned to tatters? What an incredible waste of time and money. Just because you have bought sheer excellence, doesn’t mean your clothes will stay that way. Your smart overcoat, classic Oxford toe caps, and or your incredible silk ties, will not be able to defend and maintain themselves. Together with your knowledge and persistence, you can capture the build quality of your high-end fashion, for many, many years to come.
Woolen overcoats and moths
If you live in a country where there are lots of moths, you are in trouble. Your woolen overcoats are like an ice cream sundae to moths. If they get into your pantry, it’s over Johnny. That’s why you need to know where to buy pantry moths traps. Incredibly subtle, they can be put onto your pantry doors. This is a proven trap against Meal moths and Mediterranean Flour moths. You get 15 traps in one pack and each trap has a long 8-week lifespan. This kind of trap is needed for overcoats and anything that is made out of wool, such as jumpers, sweaters, suit jackets, etc. Moths like to eat a hole into your clothes and lay their eggs. So this kind of trap will also slow down the reproduction of the moths in your area.
Making your shoes walk further
High-end men’s shoes are like an obsession for some people. The history behind formal shoes is incredible, dating back all the way to the early 1800s. The main problems your shoes encounter are as follows.
Bent heel, from forced interjection of your foot.
Scuffed toe, by hitting or scraping it while walking
Leather drying up from hot weather and direct sunlight
Shoe cracks and wrinkles from over-bending
You can easily solve each one of these issues. Buy a shoehorn so that your feet glide into the shoes. Wax your shoes after polishing and learn how to buff them. The slippery surface and additional product will give you some scratch-resistance. Your shoes must be cleaned with a damp cloth, left to dry naturally, and then polished after 2 or 3 wears. Don’t run or jog in your high-end shoes if you can help it; that’s not what they were designed to do.
In time for the fall
Before the fall and the winter, you need to have your leather gloves ready to protect you from the bitter cold. But not many people know how to take care of their leather gloves because they’re uncommon. First, wipe the gloves with a damp cloth to remove dirt and debris. Then, use a leather conditioner and a cotton cloth and just dab the gloves with it. You can buy oily creams, specifically designed for leather gloves. It keeps the leather soft, stretchy but makes it fuller and lubricated.
The joy of learning about men’s high-end fashion is, that it dawns on you that it’s a whole culture. It’s not like casual wear, whereby you buy it, wear it and don’t need to take care of it. High-end fashion is a labor of love.
