Before & After | Lindsey’s Moncler Jacket

WWTL_Before & After | Lindsey’s Moncler Jacket INTRO
 
Don’t Dry Clean That Moncler!
No brand achieves the balance of utility and fashion quite like Moncler. Drawing inspiration from couture designs, their structured down jackets with the finest of trimmings often (and understandably) get pigeonholed into the category of a high fashion therefore “Dry Clean Only” garment. But we mustn’t forget that while the jacket does now “live in the city” it was actually “born in the mountains.” This iconic piece was (and still is) the top choice of world-renowned athletes and explorers and can withstand the harshest of elements. If this jacket can withstand the peaks of Karakorum to Makalu, it should certainly be able to weather a wash cycle! Moncler down jackets might say they’re dry clean only, but we can teach you how to wash them at home.

Learn a dry cleaning alternative to care for your Moncler with Lindsey…
