We all want to look our best when we go to work, but if our clothes are uncomfortable it can affect our productivity and our mood. Here are five ways to improve your workday comfort, even if you have to wear a suit. 

1) Pants or skirt too tight, or to loose?
Get them altered. Klinke Cleaners offers Zip n Stitch alterations, which makes it easy to have your clothes altered so they look and feel great. Simply drop off your garments at Zip n Stitch, or any neighborhood Klinke Cleaners, and we’ll have it ready for pick up in a week or less. No appointment needed!

2) Shoes hurting?
Try a cozy pair of inserts, or get yourself a super-comfortable pair of shoes. A good pair of socks can also make a big difference in how comfortable your feet feel.

3) Collar too tight?
Unbutton the top button, loosen your tie, or simply buy a bigger neckline. Even upgrading your collar a half size, say from 15½ to a 16, can make a world of difference. 

4) Suit Constricting?
Take off your jacket while working, or look into suits made with a bit of stretch fabric for added give. 

5) Dress “casual neat” if you can.
Sometimes we feel pressure to dress up, even when we don’t have to. A neat pair of jeans with a nice shirt or sweater can still impress — and make you more approachable. 

We hope these tips help you stay comfortable and productive, while smiling more throughout your day!
