SO, I am an old hand at cleaning and taking care of suits. I of course do not get suit jackets wet if I can help it. I have done it once when I had one of those stinky armpit ones that I could just not get clean otherwise. Plus, it iwas not such a fine suit that I was that worried about it. The wool seems to be okay, but the lining and such seemed to be bunched up. Pressing does not seem enough, but I might take an iron to it for more serious pressing. But my question is concerning my cream gaberdine slacks. ANy problem with giving them a mild hand wash. It seems like the fabric should be find and there is no lining fabrics to worry about as in a suit. Anyone else have experience on jackets and pants in wather, or any thoughts. I am talking thirties and forties wool.
