It was just yesterday that I bought myself a pair of denim jeans and after a few washes it started to wear off and finally within a month, it came down to pieces. You might say that it was the fabric that was of bad quality but I wouldn’t put the entire blame on the fabric. It was my fault too because I couldn’t take care of it and it didn’t last long.

 

Likewise, most of us face day to day problems with our fashionable outfits and undergarments and find it extremely difficult to keep them longer with us. This article puts forward some time-saving, hassle-free and quick tips that can make men’s clothing look younger and durable.

 

 1.Abstain from a lot of washing:

Like seriously? Not washing would keep my clothes stay longer? This can’t be true! If you’d take a closer look, you’d find that the number of times you wash the clothes, that number of times you put them with the harsh detergents. Detergents are made with harsh chemicals that directly affect the threads of the fabric and loosen them, which results in wear and tear. Whether it is your street fashion or your Gucci shirts or Gucci jacket, all the items will result in the same. So avoid washing them too often.

 

 2.Check pockets before washing:

My mother always had this issue with us that we never checked out jeans pockets before putting the jeans in the washing machine. As a result, the mechanic was called to get it out and we got a scolding. Once, I forgot my set of Gucci watches in the pocket (it was brand new) and got it spoiled. In addition, these coins or anything that is left behind in the pockets causes constant rubbing against the fabric and tears the fabric faster. So, you must be careful before putting your clothes in for cleaning.

 

3.Get rid of the bobbles:

Bobbles look very ugly on the clothes. They can make your not so old sweaters or jackets look really old which you obviously don’t want. The saddest part is that once done, they keep coming back and more in number. Hence, you must buy a bobble remover comb for that smooth finish on all your winter wear outfits. Bobble removing combs can also be carried in your Gucci bags or briefcases when you go for a longer duration.

 

4.Fold and Hang theory:

You must have heard about the Big Bang Theory but have you heard about the Fold and Hang theory? You must have an idea of which clothes are supposed to be hanged while which are to be folded. Clothes with sharp edges like shirts, pants, shorts or t-shirts and even under clothing pieces are supposed to be folded whereas; articles like suits and any kind of winter wear are required to be hanged because the folded marks need to be prevented from the same.

 

5.Sunlight is important for some:

You might show all your clothes sunlight after washing them. Have you ever seen some colors fading? Well, it can either be because of the detergent or because of the sun rays. The darker clothes lose their color because of the sunlight and that’s why it would be a wiser decision to lay them flat in the shade to prevent fading.

 

With these tips, you can keep your favorite outfits longer with you without being rough or faded. You can now be careful while taking care of the outfits in order to keep them looking as good as new for a longer duration.
