Wearing & Caring for Matching Pieces

Match Wear & Care

• Don’t make a suit, a separate! Wearing one piece of a matched set or suit can result in uneven wear and an eventual variation in color between the two items.

• Garment makers often warn consumers about the potential for slight variations in color after cleaning or washing, (buying tip: take matching items into natural light to make certain the items are from the same dye lot).

• It is always recommended that matching pieces i.e. suits, sweater sets, etc/ be cleaned together, regardless of whether or not both pieces were worn or appear soiled.

• This ‘clean matching pieces together’ advice also applies to bedroom ensembles, slipcovers, draperies, etc.
