The Hanger Equation Posted on 14 Dec 15:00

By Michael Wernicke

Have you ever added up the value of all your clothing?  Well, I recently went through a closet with a friend and this is what we found.  Now we didn't have all the receipts so we just used our best estimates based on what he could recall.  Nonetheless it would be a reasonable estimation.  For this exercise we only looked at his wardrobe and excluded the things he didn't have hanging up. 
The Clothing Equation - by Henkerman Hangers
So in his wardrobe he had the following (in Australian Dollars): 
5 suits x $900 = $4500 
2 vests x $150 - $300 
6 jackets X $250 = $1500 
15 Office Shirts x $120 = $1800 
10 dress pants x $250 = $2500 
Total: AUD$10,600

6 Tips to Care for Designer Garments at Home Posted on 30 Dec 12:31

Tips for Caring for your Designer Wardrobe

While caring for your high-quality clothing at home isn’t always the best idea, there are some tips you can implement that will save you from visiting the cleaners too frequently. You can save yourself a lot of time, money, and headache by following the directions on the garment labels and following a few steps before and after wear. Check out these easy yet effective tips to help keep your fine garments looking their best for years to come.
Tip 1: Washing
When it comes to cleaning high-quality clothing at home, always start by reading the labels. This simple step will make your life a lot easier and prevent any mishaps. For most delicate and designer clothing, the label will usually state whether it is dry clean only, dry clean, or hand wash. Typically, hand washing with a gentle detergent is a safe option. Also, make sure to treat any stains as soon as possible, try not to let them sit and become ingrained in the fabric.  Furthermore, soaking any stains overnight will help to break down the substance making it easier for you to clean. 

Tip 2: Drying

Always allow your quality clothing to dry naturally. This means not using harsh heating elements which can cause damage to your garments. The best method is to lay your clothing flat on a clean, dry table outside and turn them over every thirty minutes or so for even drying. This method will also prevent mildew or funny smells from collecting in the threads. The other cool thing about air drying is that this will usually work out any wrinkles in the fabric.

Let’s take a further look at what makes black such an intriguing colour for both men and women alike.


It’s Flattering

Black has always been known as the most slimming colour, and for good reason! It literally disguises the shadows created by our natural curves and bumps and makes them appear smoother.

Brief History of Christmas Fashion

For as long as there have been special occasions, there has been fashion to go along with it. Christmas is no exception, with some - like 'Fashion Santa' above taking it to a whole new level during recent fashion shoots for Toronto's sprawling Yorkdale Shopping Centre. In fact, fashion has played an important role in the development of the modern day holiday - adding to the fun for better or worse in so many of its aspects - think for example those crazy Christmas sweaters. However, it goes without saying that in western society, the most recognizable fashion icon is Santa himself - with his red suit and white fur trim - he's instantly recognizable in an outfit representative of his great warmth and generosity.
