Admit it: as much as you love a crisp, tailored look, you rarely take the time out of your day to iron your pants. When you do, it is most likely for important meetings or events.
The good news is that ironing doesn’t have to be a major chore. Just drop your pants at Flair Cleaners for our professional finishing service. We pay special attention to hard-to-iron areas like the waistband, pockets, zipper, seams, and hems. Our specialized pressing machines use a precise combination of heat, steam, and pressure for the optimal outcome. Our professionals know exactly how to give your pants the look for which they were designed.
Read the Labels
Probably the most overlooked aspect of caring for pants is paying attention to specific instructions on the label. If the label reads, “dry clean” or “dry clean only” it means it! Bring them directly to Flair for the best results. Lined pants and fabrics like wool, silk, and blends are best dry cleaned. And, if you’re dry cleaning a suit jacket, always include your trousers. This ensures they look and wear the same.
Storing Pants The Right Way
All in all, most trousers spend more time in the closet than being worn. Storing them properly ensures they’re ready when needed and that extends their wearable life. Hang pants upside-down, with the waist facing the ground. Take time to straighten out the pants and ensure the seams and creases line up, so you don’t create new unsightly wrinkles. Hang one leg at a time! Putting both legs through a hanger together won’t provide the crisp look you seek.
A tailored pant always looks better than one worn right off the hanger. Here are a few things our professional tailors do to make your pants stand out.
- Lengthen or shorten pants so they hang perfectly.
- Take in or let out the rise – as long as we have about 3/4 inch of fabric to work with.
- Sew shut, adjust or remove gaping pockets.
- Adjust the waist for a proper fit – not too snug or loose.
- Slightly taper pant legs for a professional look.
