How often should I dry clean my suits?
As little as possible. Ideally, no more than one time per quarter. Pressing your suits will take away the wrinkles as well as NOT subject your suits to all the chemicals from dry cleaning. Ultimately, too many dry cleanings will take the life out of your suits, giving them a very stiff, or lifeless, feel.
