We wish we had a butler. In fact, it’s one of the great disappointments of our life that we do not. And, if you stop and think about it, we bet you’ll get pretty worked up about it too. But in the absence of a butler, valet, coachman, footman or personal chef, it falls to us to perform some of these tasks ourselves.
Starting with the clothes brush.
It’s a habit that’s fallen out of favor in the age of dry-cleaning, but it should be a solid part of your pre-party routine. Brush your suits the right way and you’ll add an extra level of sharpness, along with a few extra wears between cleanings. Do it wrong and you’ll leave awkward diagonal lines across the back of your favorite jacket. So naturally, we’re going to make sure you do it right.
