It keeps you warm when it's cold out, here are a few care tips to return the favour.

Generally speaking, jackets aren’t high maintenance items - they are there to face the elements, after all. The Ideal Jacket’s no exception to the rule, but we still have a few recommendations for you, just to keep yours looking as flawless as it did the day it arrived.
When you don't have your jacket on your shoulders, pop it on a nice, large, wooden coat hanger. This is really the best way to keep it in good shape over time.
PS: When we say a coat hanger, we mean a coat hanger. Don’t plonk it on the back of a chair or chuck it over the top of a wardrobe door.
Generally speaking, a little airing between each wear should be enough to remove smells and bacteria. That said… ketchup splash-back, coffee spills and other everyday accidents do happen. If you want to wash it for real, here's the deal:
Turn your Ideal Jacket inside out before popping it in the wash, preferably with similarly coloured items. Use a bleach-free organic detergent.
Choose a 30°C programme with a moderate spin (somewhere between 400 and 800 rpm should do nicely)
Crack open a good book and wait for the cycle to finish. Easy.
Anything goes, as long as you don't put your jacket in the tumble dryer. In our books, the best method is to let your jacket dry naturally on that large wooden hanger we already told you about. This will also allow the Ideal Jacket to return to its original shape as it dries.
NB: Avoid leaving it in direct sunlight, as this could lead to fading.
If you choose to keep your Ideal Jacket in workwear mode, you can skip this part.
On the other hand, if you’re leaning toward a more dressed-up look, you may want to iron your jacket to give it a smoother look and really make those tidy lines sing. In that case, be sure to place a piece of fabric (a towel’ll do) between the material and the iron, and avoid exceeding 110°C.
So there you have it, you now know everything there is to know about looking after your Ideal Jacket. If we've missed something or you have any questions hit us up in the comment section below or here: firstname.lastname@example.org.
