How many garments should we allocate each wearer?
It is impossible to advise on how much clothing to issue without knowing the circumstances, however, a rule of thumb is 2 jackets and 3 bottom halves (trousers/skirts). 5 shirts and blouses.
How often should I wash a “washable” tailored garment?
Recommended washing is 6 times per year. Two jackets per wearer should result in a wash once per month. This is a lot more than dry clean jackets get cleaned. Trousers can be washed more often (as required). More important than how often is how the garment is washed.
• Wash the tailored items separately.
• Wash on a wool wash (max 40deg). A Short spin cycle only.
• Remove from the washing machine immediately the cycle ends.
• Shake and pull the garment into shape. Hang and allow to dry naturally.
• Press the garment using a damp cloth. It is not advisable to iron directly onto the fabric because this can cause glazing.
• We recommend having the garment professionally dry cleaned or professionally pressed once per annum. This will help to return the jacket to its factory condition.
• NEVER USE FABRIC CONDITIONER.

What is the best test of garment suitability?
