When you talk about taking care of wool clothing, you mention brushing the item. What type of brush are you suggesting and where can one buy them?

The equipment needed to brush a suit is as basic as you would expect: a soft-bristled brush is all it takes. Menswear stores usually carry them, and you can find them online under both the name “clothing brush” and the more specific “suit brush.” Some have a long handle like a hairbrush; others are bristled all the way down their length like a shoe brush.
The most important aspect of a clothing brush is the bristles. You want hair bristles, not plastic, long and soft enough that it doesn’t have a hard, prickly feeling when you pat it against your hand. The bristles themselves don’t need cleaning very often; when they do, simply rub them briskly back and forth over a smooth, flat surface to shake the dust loose. Put a sheet of paper down so that you don’t scratch the surface you’re using and so that the dirt can be thrown away neatly and easily.
I have two. I have a long handled curved one that I use at home and I have a smaller horn one from japan that I use when traveling. If I can figure out how to post a picture I will show them to you.
