Taking good care of your bespoke suit and shirts, protects your wardrobe investment as well as keeps you looking great. With correct care your bespoke suit will last for many years to come. Invest in three key tools: a lint tape roller, a clothes brush, and a steamer.

After each wearing Empty pockets of your bespoke suit jacket or trouser: Otherwise you may teach them to bulge or sag. Brush them with a Lint Roller: This removes lint, hair, surface dirt and soil and prevents them from becoming stains later on. You can also use a lint brush, but it's slightly more stressful on the fabric. Air the suit: Hang the jacket and trouser up on seperate hangers for an hour or so to dissipate odors it may have absorbed, such as cigarette smoke. If you have slight creases to the suit, it should be hung inside a bathroom after a shower or bath keeping the room filled with as much steam as possible, waiting 30 minutes for the suit to take to the steam, then moving out of the bathroom with ample breathing room to allow any creases wrinkles to relax out. When storing suit, dont leave them in the plastic or woven suit carry case it came in, this will only increse moth holes and stale odors in the suit.Leaving garments in the plastic bags promotes light damage and mildew, and can dry out leather and suede

Padded plastic or wooden hangers are gentler than wire ones.
Avoid hanging a jacket, or any heavier garments, by the neck or on a coat rack or hook.

Brush your suits regularly and thoroughly. Napped fabrics, such as flannel, will perk up after a light once-over with a clothes brush, and a shot of steam will remove wrinkles quickly and effectively. Stores often use steamers to freshen suits and shirts after they've been tried on.
  Dry rain-soaked or damp suits thoroughly in a cool, well ventilated place before hanging in the closet.
  Care for your bespoke suits regularly, and unless you have a spill, you should only have to dry clean them once, at the end of the season -- a real benefit since dry cleaning is so expensive!

  Exposure to air, heat and light sets stains and can make their removal impossible. Treat any stains immediately to keep them from becoming permanent. Another good reason to get items cleaned before storage.Don't jam your suits together in your wardrobe, either. If you have a big wardrobe, rotate it seasonally, storing your out-of-season bespoke suits and shirts in a separate wadrobe (if you're lucky enough to have one) or in special clothing containers (example: old suitcases).
 Don't Press a suit or shirt t if it's stained. The heat of pressing will set the stain and likely make its removal impossible.
  Don't Use untested home stain removers or club soda. They can aggravate the condition, or may create permanent damage. Take the garment to your drycleaner.
