P1 - nope, it's just that I did not get my suit dry cleaned last weekend. And I am not going home for the next weekend. So I need to get dry cleaned. Just a question if I should do it or I can expense it..

If it’s just light wrinkles, get a travel steamer - Rowenta makes a nice one that has served me well

Just curious, how often do you guys dry clean your suit?

LPT: buy 2 pairs of pants when you get a new suit

Agree with above. Don’t dry clean suit just for wrinkles. Only dry clean if you spill something or if it pours rain.
