  1. – Use thick, quality wooden hangers. They should be broad enough to mimic the top of your shoulder bones, and curved like your shoulders. Wood works better at drawing out moisture than plastic does, so try to avoid synthetics.

    – Keep the suits out of the light to protect the dyes. Closets are dark for a reason.

    – Give your suits room to hang apart, rather than pressing the up against one another. You want air flowing through.

    – Toss a few pieces of sandalwood (lots of menswear stores sell them) in the closet to help keep bugs away and to control odor. It also helps keep insects out.

    – If your closet isn’t very well-sealed or you live in a climate where insects are a regular problem, go ahead and use some mothballs or similar products. Look for the newer ones made of non-toxic chemicals, and try for ones that don’t have much of a smell.

  2. Lavender also helps with insect control, and I share a few more tips in this video from the Real Men Real Style YouTube channel:
