    What Garment Bags do you guys use to store your suits and parka's (canada goose)?

    As the title suggests, looking for recommendations on storage products. Looking to be more diligent with taking care of my clothing investments.

    Already invested in some wide shoulder hangers, so need your recommendations on the garment bags!

    Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks!

    Just brush your suits after you wear them and hang them in the closet.

    I only store the seasonal type items. I use the free garment bags I get from S&M, SuSu or other places. I put some cedar in the closet and maybe a cedar bag or small piece in the bag itself. No need for me to pay for garment bags. If you don't have any, I don't see the value in buying expensive ones.

    Thanks for the responses guys (and the good laugh shade).

    Ok so garment bags may be over kill for the suits (thanks for the tips) but I definitely want to store my canada goose parka when the time is ripe, does it matter what fabric of bag I get?

    Unofficial response but you'd just want something that breaths. You don't want any moisture in your jacket to start mold because of a damp confined space. I think it's more important where you are storing it then what you are storing it in.

    I like to keep suits and outerwear exposed to some air. Unless it has been dry cleaned I would prefer not to seal it in a tight closed garment bag.
    I use natural fiber (cotton) shoulder covers as it keeps the dust off during the off season or during season for less frequently worn items. One cover per suit/sportcoat or outerwear. Can also put about 3-4 shirts in one cover as well.
