Creased business jackets - what can I do?

Recommended Posts

Good evening,

I have two business jackets that I foolishly put in the tumble dryer and now they're all creased. 

I am poor so I cannot afford to take them to a professional. I have tried washing them again and letting them dry naturally in the sun but it hasn't removed the creases.  

Could anybody please offer some suggestions on how to proceed?

Many thanks,

TT

Iron them?

That's easier said than done. I tried ironing from the inside out but the interior fabric is annoying polyester or something where the iron just sticks and stains it.

I'd be too scared to try ironing the outside because with my trousers I usually end up leaving a mark with the iron.

I can't afford to buy new ones and don't want to destroy the only ones I have.

Wet tea towel over the jacket, then apply the iron..

Hmmmmm. I guess I could try that on one of them and see if it works.  

Will keep the other as a backup in case it backfires.

Many thanks for your assistance.

We know it's you Howard ;)

Try steam over a boiling kettle then cold iron.

(Failing that, Peter Karran has a suit or two that he's not using these days)

How did you know my name is Howard? I am sure I did not enter that in my personal details when I registered. 

You've been tabbed mate.

Just go to Peel, they won’t notice. It’s always 1985 there. With the creases you’ll be the coolest dude in Michael St.

Hang them on a hanger in the bathroom and let the steam from your daily shower relax the creases.

Might take a while, possibly over a year, and cost more in hot water than your jackets are actually worth, but it's worth a shot.
