Have you ever shown up somewhere or been invited out at the last minute and just weren't quite looking your best? Yeah that's the worst.
Here are 5 simple hacks we've devised over the years to stay looking fresh at all times. Use these hacks and you will no doubt be looking your best when the time comes.
1. Lint Rollers
Have one everywhere, the car, office, house, anywhere you go.
2. Hand Held Steamer
A must have to get extra wear out of your gear, way faster than ironing and can give worn clothes that freshly washed look fast. Something about the steam makes a worn hoodie feel like it was just washed.
3. Clorox Wipes
We use these on our kicks. A quick wipe down of the sides of the sole and even the top (depending on material) and your kicks will be looking brand new. I use them all over on the Stan Smiths and haven't had any issues. I highly recommend these or some other sneaker wipes.
4. Dry Clean Almost Everything
We send almost everything out to the cleaners. Even tee shirts. Your gear will stay looking new almost forever, plus you have the added benefit of not having to wash, dry, and iron your clothes. It can be pricey, but can also greatly extend the life of your clothes, saving valuable cash.
5. Carry Spare Clothes
This is clutch. Remember in Mad Men Don Draper always had extra shirts on deck? We had a model show up to a shoot with a Goyard Bag in her trunk full of clothes. I asked her what they were for and she said 'Just in case I need an outfit, I always have one'. She was ready for any occasion, any time. She had bikinis, dresses, heels, sneakers, you name it. She wasn't about to miss out on anything.
So throw a backpack or duffel bag together with a lint roller, extra gear, and some Clorox Wipes in your trunk. So when that last minute invite comes, you'll be ready.
