Re: Last time you had something dry-cleaned?

When I was working in an office environment where men were expected to wear pressed button down shirts, I sent mine out for dry cleaning all the time. Some cleaners are better than others (with one my shirts wouldn't last more than a few rounds, but with the last one I used the shirts seemed to last longer than normal). My tip is to be sure to always wear undershirts, even in the hotter months--that helps extend their lifespan.

With suits, if you wear good quality undergarments and have lined pants, you can go quite a while without dry cleaning them... also depending upon how much you perspire during the day (obviously summer months aren't friendly to suits, especially the pants).
