It’s not a matter of do they have the customer for these types of price points, they certainly do, but how many pieces could actually be produced in these categories?

how to fold a suit jacket
All hangers are not created equal. This especially applies to hangers that are needed for suits. There are many types of hangers made for generic purposes, such as, the wire hanger, but there are hangers that are manufactured for specific purposes, such as suit hangers. Who doesn't remember Faye Dunaway screaming, "No more wire hangers!" in the movie Mommy Dearest. Faye Dunaway played Joan Crawford in the story of Ms. Crawford’s life as told through the eyes of her daughter, Christina Crawford. It remains a legendary Hollywood film.
Over the years of being in the men's clothing business many people have asked me how to fold a suit jacket in the luggage without wrinkles. I would show them a fold taught to me by my grandfather that I have used over and over while traveling. My suits come out of the luggage in great condition even after a long flight. Hang your suit or jacket up when you take it out and wear. No need to call hotel housekeeping for pressing.
All-season suits are just that, suits made from fabrics that you can use in any type of climate or season, whether it be hot, cold, winter or summer. They are available to buy all year long. Since the menswear business is a seasonal business there will be a time when the selection of all season goods is greater. When is that time?
