    Dude, Here's How To Make Your Clothes Last Longer

    And all this shit is super easy.

    1. Buy yourself shoe trees. Seriously.

    Shoe tress absorb moisture and odor and help your shoes keep their shape longer. When your shoe trees lose their cedar fragrance, just hit them lightly with sand paper and they'll smell fresh again.

    2. And get thick, cedar hangers, too.

    3. But DON'T hang your knits.

    4. Learn how to wax a jacket.

    Or any other canvas or heavy cotton clothes. Waxing helps natural fibers resist the elements, and can be done every year, so you don't have to buy new shit. This video will teach you how.

    5. Teach yourself how to sew so you can fix your busted clothes.

    6. Wash your clothes less often.

    7. And dryers are even worse, so hang-dry.

    8. Get a garment brush for hard-to-wash clothes.

    9. Purchase a steamer.

    10. If you really love something, buy multiples.

    11. Learn how to take care of leather boots.

    12. Rotate your shoes so they last longer.

    13. Use a shoe horn to keep the heels of your shoes intact.

    14. Invest in shoes that can be resoled.
