How to Care for and Store Your Pants and Shorts

Pants

Thank you for choosing Paul Fredrick! We know you’re going to love your new purchase.

Always read the care and content label to determine how to care for your garment. This is especially important because your garment may have different care instructions than those detailed here.

In order to get the longest life from your Paul Fredrick garment, we recommend following these instructions, depending on the relevant material.

Laundering Your Pants

Wool/Wool-Blend: If your pants are made from wool or a wool-blend, they are dry clean only. Hang wool pants on a proper hanger in a well ventilated closet.

Linen: If your pants are made from linen, they are dry clean only.

Microfiber: If your pants are made from microfiber, machine wash the pants warm with similar colors. Use only non-chlorine bleach when needed. Tumble dry the pants on a low setting and remove promptly. Use a warm iron when needed.

Cotton Denim: If your pants are made from cotton denim, machine wash them and tumble dry on a low setting. Remove promptly when finished to avoid wrinkles.

Cotton Moleskin: If your pants are made from cotton moleskin, machine wash them and tumble dry on a low setting. Remove promptly when finished to avoid wrinkles.

Cotton Corduroy: If your pants are made from cotton corduroy, machine wash the pants cold with similar colors. Use only non-chlorine bleach when needed. Lay the pants flat to dry, and use a warm iron when needed.

100% Cotton: If your pants are made from 100% cotton, machine wash the pants. Tumble dry them on a low setting, and remove promptly when finished to avoid wrinkles.

100% Non-Iron Cotton: If your pants are made from 100% non-iron cotton or 100% cotton, machine wash the pants. Tumble dry them on a low setting, and remove promptly when finished to avoid wrinkles. To remove wrinkles from hanging, place the pants in the dryer for 10 minutes, then remove promptly. The heat from the dryer releases the wrinkles in non-iron.

Laundering Your Shorts

Linen: If your shorts are made from linen, they are dry clean only.

Microfiber: If your shorts are made from microfiber, machine wash the shorts warm with similar colors. Use only non-chlorine bleach when needed. Tumble dry the shorts on a low setting and remove promptly. Use a warm iron when needed.

Cotton: If your shorts are made from cotton, machine wash the shorts. Tumble dry them on a low setting, and remove promptly when finished to avoid wrinkles.

Troubleshooting

The less frequently you dry clean your pants or shorts, the better. If you simply need to remove a wrinkle, ironing or steaming that section should be sufficient. If you do get a spot on your garment, take it to the dry cleaner immediately. Your dry cleaner should know which method to use to remove it, depending upon the cause of the stain. If you machine wash your pants, turn them inside out before washing to help deter lint and fading.

Storing Your Pants or Shorts

Always re-crease your pants before hanging them; the best method of hanging is full-length, upside-down so the pants’ weight prevents wrinkles from forming. If you choose to hang your pants at the middle of the leg, do not hang them right at the knees, which will cause more wear to an already worn spot. Also, make sure that both legs are hanging smoothly to avoid any unwanted creases.

    I received 2 pairs of pants yesterday. I had the legs altered by you and requested 30″, which have been my measurement for 55+ years. They were WAY TOO LONG! I had to take them to a tailor today to raise them a full two inches! Why did this happen? I presume the crotch is 2″ longer than the numerous other pants I have purchased from various places over the years? Please advise, and tell me how I can avoid this issue (and extra expense) in the future. Thank you.

    Hello, Joseph!
    In reviewing your purchase history with us it appears that you have selected the same inseam of 30” and had returned the pairs for a refund. The indicated reason was that the pants were too long. Our pants do have a generous rise of 14” for the front rise and 19.25” for the back rise.
    As one time courtesy, we will issue a refund of the alteration costs back to your method of payment. Should issues arise in the future please do reach out to us as soon as possible. We will gladly cover postage back to us by using our prepaid label, adjust the inseam length for you, and send them back out your address at no additional cost. We do recommend following the steps below for a more accurate inseam measurement. http://www.paulfredrick.com/help/sizeChart.aspx?mn=hpi8#pants
