HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR BLAZER
How to wash your school blazer:
Ensure that all the blazer pockets are empty. You don’t want a rogue tissue ruining the fabric or
a pen lid blocking up your washing machine!
Prepare for your wash by always reading the label of your school blazer first.
We recommend washing our blazers at 40 degrees and avoiding strong fabric conditioners to help reduce the stress on the fabric, keep the color looking fresh and prolong the garment’s life span. Our school blazers can also be professionally dry cleaned, if preferred.
For best results, do not tumble dry. Simply hang up to dry.
In general, if you have hung out your school blazer to dry it shouldn’t need ironing and will maintain its lasting shape. However, if you want to achieve an even smarter finish, place a damp cloth between the blazer and the iron. Never iron directly onto the fabric.

"In a real sense all life is inter-related. All men are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be, and you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be... This is the inter-related structure of reality.
