My favorite black suit jacket, which is admittedly from the bargain-bin price range at Men's Wearhouse, is starting to develop shiny spots on the elbow (caused by the fabric being rubbed during use and stretched when bent).
Unfortunate corollary: This makes me look cheap. Er.
A self-contained matte spray, specially designed for fabrics (airbrush paint for fabrics is WKTE, but I'm not aware of any self-contained clearcoats), which would be applied by owners, and which would protect the wearer's ego by making the worn-ness of the suit less obvious.
||Try a black permanent marker, makes it black and matte.
||There used to be some scalp spray for balding men, to make things dark and unshiny.
||I've used the black marker idea if I had a bleach spot on black clothing, but only a small spot.
