Winter Suits us Just Fine

In continuing with last week’s change in attitude towards winter, and thanks to the Grammy’s red carpet looks we caught a glimpse of this weekend, we’re on a winter suit kick. We can’t stop pinning thick, wool suits paired with oversized scarves and tailored overcoats to our Pinterest boards!

But, the problem for suit wearers is that winter is super tough on suits. If you work in the kind of job that requires you to wear a suit and live in this beautifully wintery city of ours, your suit is having to put up with a lot. Salty slush dampens the bottom of your pant leg; rain, snow, or sleet soaks your overcoat; and to top it off, any time spent on the subway means that you’re also sweating inside your wool suit.

Thankfully, we are dry cleaners in Toronto and can easily take care of your suit’s winter abuse so that we can skip ahead to the good stuff.

3 Reasons to Love Winter Suits

Tweed – Channel your inner college professor and wear an amazing tweed or herringbone suit. Both of these are made from twilled yarn, which is nice and durable as well as warm.


Rich Colours – In the winter, you can go straight for the dark, rich colours that would look a little out of place in the spring or summer.

Scarves + Overcoats – If you wear a suit regularly, you’ll know that in the summer, your goal is to wear as few layers as possible along with your suit. This can limit your options for styling. Winter suits have the pleasure of being paired with thick scarves, structured jackets, or even a memorable hat.

Before you go, here’s one more reminder that if your suit has seen a little too much winter, we do suit dry cleaning and even offer pick up and drop off at no extra charge!
