First, as long as you're already going through your closet, now would be a good time to get rid of garments that you really aren't wearing anymore.
Additionally, this may be a good time to clean the closet itself as well. Vacuum the floor, wipe down the shelves, and so on. Speaking of cleaning before they're stored, all of your winter wardrobe items should be thoroughly cleaned.
To begin our specific cleaning instructions then, footwear should first be wiped down with a damp cloth then a clean dry cloth and then finally, given a good pass with a shoe brush. Polishing with saddle soap or leather conditioner could also be a good idea at this time and for suede, you'll want to use cleaning tools that are specifically designed for that material. Make sure to wipe down the interiors of your footwear if you're able as well. Also, giving footwear a day to sit and deodorize with something like a sachet full of baking soda for at least a day before storing can also be beneficial.
Hats should also be wiped down and brushed but with a softer garment brush, a shoe brush would be too abrasive for that kind of material.
You can prevent insect damage to your clothes by using a natural repellent like lavender. Although something like mothballs may seem like the easy solution, they're actually bad for storage with your garments over time.
So after you've washed them, what's the best way to store your garments then?
You can start by placing heavier items like denim, other trousers, and coats at the bottom of a breathable cotton storage container. You can find both soft-bodied models and ones with reinforcement at the sides, whichever you would prefer.
Medium weight items like sweaters come next in the storage container and then lightweight items like shirts can be placed on top. Delicate items like sweaters, ties, or scarves made from materials like cashmere, can also be wrapped in acid-free tissue paper for an extra layer of protection.
Also, you can place your cashmere items in a plastic bag and put them in the freezer for a day or two before storing them just to make sure that the extreme cold kills any moths or larvae that might be present.
It's important that items not to be worn for a long period of time be neatly folded instead of left on the hanger, this is especially true for sweaters. Left to hang, garments made from wool, cashmere, acrylic, or polyester will become misshapen over time.
Lighter weight trousers, as well as sweaters and shirts, can also be rolled instead of folded. This way, you can stack them horizontally instead of vertically which may mean more maximization of space in your storage containers.
You can store footwear on the floor or a shelf of your closet in the open air but to be even more safe, putting it back into its original box or another cotton storage container would be a better idea. Additionally, things like hanging boot racks are also available.
Don't try to be overly efficient with your storage containers and overfill them either. Remember that space and breathability are key to making sure that your garments have proper air circulation so that you don't get moisture buildup or excess wrinkling.
Here's one final tip for today, do remember to keep a couple of transitional pieces out of storage unless you've happened to wait until the middle of summer to put away all of your winter clothing. Having a few medium-weight pieces out of storage that you can wear for colder spring days is a good idea especially if you live in a part of the globe where spring can mean warmer days and cooler nights.
With these tips at your disposal then, you should head into spring with a closet that's neat and tidy and garments that are safely and tightly packed away until things get chilly again.
I’ve been planning to put my winter garments for storage soon, and I’m grateful for this video. Otherwise, I would have wasted my money on evil plastic containers instead of proper bags. Thank you guys!
Transitional jackets tend to have a medium weight—neither too light nor too heavy. They’re just the right type for wearing as warm days give way to cool nights during spring and autumn. They’re also good for sudden but mild rains throughout the seasons.
Anoraks and some heavier sweaters are usually a good place to start.
Doing a little investigation found out that one looks kind of an urbanized version of the classical M65 "field jacket" from the US military, Vietnam era. So it should be a so called "field jacket" then.
Hello, great video! I saw your "is it worth it?" series and I was wondering if you could review a Schott Perfecto leather jacket? I know it's not exactly your area of expertise but it would be great. Cheers!
Wire Hangers is mostly what I use it saves closet space.Interesting concept to freeze items I would say that is the most surprising to answer question.Wonder how freezing would affect other fabrics?I have used the Thick Plastic Storage locker totes non see through type that does not let sunlight in to store clothing had no issues but will consider cloth bags along with that now, you did bring up a good point on too much clothes can let moisture in so I will remember that.The Tie as a belt feels strange id have to go with a thin fabric belt myself the Bowtie would be to much for me lol.
Excellent video! It’s apparent that you did your research and the information was presented in an organized/concise manner. I was not aware of the risks of long term use of cedar for shoes. Thanks for sharing this info. Good job!
Preston, if that is your closet, i must say i envy you. That looks like the kind of closet I would like to have. Great video! The information against plastic containers educated me. Is there a certain type, name brand, or quality of the breathable storage containers that we should look for when purchasing them?
Raphael, i must say you picked a wonderful, caring and intellectual gentleman when you hired Preston. Yes, i am the same one who did not like the idea of him being there, however I took your advice and took a look at myself and thought if i want to be a gentleman, i must be acting and thinking like one. Thank you very much.
Hi, I leave my shoes always with shoe trees inserted. Sometimes for months at a time. What can I do to restore oils on the inside if the shoe tree is stripping the shoe? Does applying cedar oil on the shoe tree every now and then hurt the shoe?
I guess wearing the shoes might help to restore the oils. However I am very interested to know how they came up with the no cedar shoe tree policy for long term storage of shoes. This wasn't explained properly considering it's affecting possibly one of the most expensive parts of ones wardrobe.
You guys do a great job!
Question - early in the video you have guidance against plastic containers and show a box of Ziplock bags but near the end of the video you mention that "vacuum sealable storage bags can come in handy". The ones I have are made by the Ziplock folks so are these an exception? Also, I have a down jacket - can this be compressed for storage or should it be stored expanded; I seem to recall that was the instructions for down sleeping bags. Thanks so much.
Taking care of your wardrobe is the best series! I'm learning so much. Preston is absolutely crushing it. I still can't get behind the tie belt. Very Jethro Clampett lol, but I'm sure it's comfortable.
This may not be the question for this type of video, but I need a new wardrobe, I'm buying all new clothes and I want to dress like a gentleman. For pants should I buy suit pants or chinos even though I dont own a suit yet.
Hey Sven, bought an Isaia Napoli suit in Torino for 995 euros on sale from 2400 euros at an outlet store. Did I get a good deal or does Isaia make outlet specific suits that would never actually sell for 2400 euros? Also, do you know if the suit would be half/full canvas or fused?
Thank you for the [email protected] , I'm not too sure if it is full canvas though. I am not really experienced in terms of quality suits, however, I don't really feel a 3rd layer under the second button. Shouldn't I be able to if it was full canvas?
Vacuum-sealable bags are nice for maximizing space, but it's generally better for your garments to be stored in a container that's breathable. Further, you'll have less wrinkling if you don't vacuum-seal. Thanks for watching!
Vinyl garment bags aren't often breathable; as we illustrate in the video, folding your overcoats and placing them in the bottom of a breathable cotton container would be an ideal method of storage. Thanks for your question!
A trigger is a named PL/SQL unit that is stored in the database and executed ( fired ) in response to a specified event that occurs in the database.
Overview of Triggers.
A trigger is a named program unit that is stored in the database and fired (executed) in response to a specified event. The specified event is associated with either a table, a view, a schema, or the database, and it is one of the following:
A database manipulation (DML) statement ( DELETE , INSERT , or UPDATE )
A database definition (DDL) statement ( CREATE , ALTER , or DROP )
A database operation ( SERVERERROR , LOGON , LOGOFF , STARTUP , or SHUTDOWN )
The trigger is said to be defined on the table, view, schema, or database.
A DML trigger is fired by a DML statement, a DDL trigger is fired by a DDL statement, a DELETE trigger is fired by a DELETE statement, and so on.
An INSTEAD OF trigger is a DML trigger that is defined on a view (not a table). The database fires the INSTEAD OF trigger instead of executing the triggering DML statement. For more information, see Modifying Complex Views (INSTEAD OF Triggers).
A system trigger is defined on a schema or the database. A trigger defined on a schema fires for each event associated with the owner of the schema (the current user). A trigger defined on a database fires for each event associated with all users.
A simple trigger can fire at exactly one of the following timing points :
Before the triggering statement executes.
After the triggering statement executes.
Before each row that the triggering statement affects.
After each row that the triggering statement affects.
A compound trigger can fire at more than one timing point. Compound triggers make it easier to program an approach where you want the actions you implement for the various timing points to share common data. For more information, see Compound Triggers.
