View Full Version : First Suits (so cute) and Suit ??

03-20-2004, 07:01 PM
I am so excited. We just purchased suits for our DS's to use for Easter and the Formal nights on the cruise. We are not a dressy family and the kids have never ever worn suits. Sears was having a sale and we got full suits (slacks, jacket, shirt and tie) for $52 each. I hope that is a good price. I thought they looked so good, I had to post a picture.

Question - How do we pack the suits to avoid wrinkles?

You have lovely boys!

I have two boys also and a DH and what I do for their suits, is save the plastic bags the dry cleaning comes in and and put them in that (one to each bag). If you don't have any dry cleaning bags just go into the store and as for a couple, worse case they'll charge you 25 cents for each one. Once I have them positioned in the plastic bags, I then hang them in a one larger garment bag. If you don't have a garment bag you can buy one really cheap. Unpack them as soon as you're in your stateroom and then hang right up (they will already been on hangers). I've never had a problem doing it that way.

I picked up an adorable suit for DS last year, just before Easter, at BJ's. It was a $40 suit, but I got it for $13! He wore it on our cruise in July, and again for Thanksgiving. http://community.webshots.com/photo/103732607/115829345NnJJCh

We used a garment bag for DH's suit. I just touched up the shirt with Downy Wrinkle Releaser.

Great picture! The boys look great in the suits.
And thanks for posting. You inspired me to go out and buy my DSs suits today. Our Disney cruise isnt for over a year and a half, but we are going on a different cruise in August. I got a great deal at Sears too.
