INFORMATION

At Walter Harley, we like to help our clients always look their best.
We have put together some tips and frequently asked questions to help as a guide.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

The delivery time of a suit/garment is 8-10 weeks for a completed garment. We work by appointment only so please call or email to arrange a meeting or for details. We operate mainly in the London and Hertfordshire area.

WEARING AND STORING?

Rotate your suit. It is best not to wear a suit every day. A suit requires time to breath and rest between wears. Rotating your suit will help prolong the life of the garment.

It is advisable not to hang a suit over the back of a chair. When hanging your suit, you should always empty the pockets and hang it unbuttoned. The hanger should preferable be a wooden suit hanger. This will ensure the suit keeps its shape.

CARE AND CLEANING?

The cleaning of your suit should be done as rarely as possible. The dry cleaning process uses chemicals that damage the natural elements of the cloth.

Unless you have a big spill you can always refresh your suit by getting it steam cleaned. Hand steaming is preferable as over time pressing can gradually damage the fibres and shape of the suit.

Regular care. It is good practice to brush away any dust, lint or hair that builds up over time. A soft clothes brush is a good way to help keep your suit looking its best.
